High Stakes & Dangerous Men – The UFO Story – What The Press Say So Far…

January 1, 2014

Reviews of my UFO book are slowly coming in over the festive season.

Here’s what the press say so far:


“UFO are still touring and recording and well worth seeing live, although their set list is still heavily based on the classic ‘Strangers In The Night’ album. If you’re a fan of the band grab this book to sit along Martin Popoff’s earlier tome on the band.”

Jason Ritchie – Get Ready To Rock (http://

“As a British rock institution they came up with some classic hard rock songs and at the time of writing in 2013 seem to have come full circle with their acclaimed ‘Seven Deadly’ album and a more settled line up. ‘High Stakes & Dangerous Men’ is a no frills account of a no frills rock band and a tribute to them in that they have managed to sustain some longevity as a band of the people.”

Mike Ainscoe – Mudkiss (

“…what really lifts High Stakes & Dangerous Men above the average rock band biography is the authors’ appreciation for the great music the band created over the decades (and indeed still are with recent albums such as The Visitor and Seven Deadly). The underappreciated Paul Chapman era is well featured along with some of their more obscure 90’s albums and the reader is left in no doubt there is much more to UFO than merely Strangers In The Night.”

Dean Pedley – Sea Of Tranquility (


“I finished Neil Daniel’s UFO book and didn’t know that Pete Makowski had written an Afterword which is worth the price of the book alone. It tells of 1981 and how he and I ended up on Concorde (the homosexual at the BA desk took a shine to Peter, I gave the pervert Pete’s home number). We had a real old rock’n’roll trip to LA and San Francisco which in truth I had forgotten about. Pete really should do a book he describes those days so well.”
