Format: Paperback
Neil Daniels has now written several actual rock biographies- including those of Judas Priest, Linkin Park, Bon Jovi and Robert Plant. This collection of interviews, compiled from material spanning several years, has a number of great contributions from articles he has written for various music magazines in between those books. The transcriptions of these interviews, collected here, give you a glimpse of what it might be like to be an actual rock writer. Makes for more than 'slightly interesting' reading, especially if you're a rock music fan.

Format: Paperback
Basically this book is a collection of interviews with 40 singers, bands and writers. The author is not predjudice and chooses to include the artists he likes from the various subgenres of rock and metal. The title comes from the Meat Loaf song. Though it is print on demand the quality of the book, paper and text is very good. There is a lot to read and you can dip in and out of it whenever you like. Recommended.

First heard of this writer with his JP book and have been a fan since. ITs a great compendium of the works of some of our idols and a great insight into their lives.

Highly recommended.
