Product Description

Review

Appetite for Destruction has the best of Wall's Kerrang! features, each bolstered by new, insightful post-scripts. You won't read a funnier rock book in 2010.**** (MOJO)

Wall was the lead feature writer for Kerrang! magazine in the 1980s, and this hilarious tome is a collection of his finest moments... Wall had a great knack from getting under the skin of interviewees. (BIG ISSUE)

An excellent primer to the good and bad of the job... he never falls into the trap of being too impressed with his own novelty, making this a very good read. (ROCK SOUND)

Mick Wall was one of the mag's [Kerrang!] better-known writers and this book contains 31 of his bigger, funnier or generally more significant stories... what's notable is Wall's approach of reverence where it had been earned and contempt where it was deserved.' (RECORD COLLECTOR)

Wall is firing on all cylinders (CLASSIC ROCK)

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocktastic! 23 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
Saw this in Waterstones a few days after finishing the Metallica book he wrote. Thought I'd have a look. Started reading in the shop and burst out laughing. So bought it and have now just finished it. I'm too young to have been a Kerrang reader when Wall was at his height in the 80s but reading this makes you wish you were. Brilliant.

2.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE! 22 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
Having read the excellent Mick Wall anthology 'Star Trippin'(2006), I purchased this book. Imagine my suprise to find all the stories/interviews from 'Star Tripin' reproduced in this book! I also recall looking at a Classic Rock Magazine Special which reproduced many (if not all?)the 'Star Trippin'stories. There are more stories in this book, but half are from Star Trippin, none of the publicity made this clear.If you don't have Star Trippin I'm sure you will really enjoy this 'new' anthology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bet Axl loves the title ;-) 10 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
During the 80s celebrated Kerrang! scribe Mick Wall was the Boswell of the good, the bad and the ugly. Confidante, insider and trusted source of the biggest, baddest and most outrageous of that wonderful decade's biggest rock acts.
For those of us who were there at the time, Mick's jaw-dropping scoops were almost as important a part of the time as the albums and bands themselves that formed the sound track to our wasted youth.

Mick's work, at worst, is always worth exploring but at it's best, as here, where Mick, too, was younger, less cynical (marginally!)it's compelling and wonderful stuff.

I'd read all these pieces, apart from the later Grunge articles, in their original Kerrang! issues at the time and how great to have 'em wrapped up here in one, chunky volume!

It's all here: the sleaze, the horror, the humour along with perceptive insights and, sometimes, a compelling look into the creative processess and motiviations of the bands concerned.

Very much a companion volume to the equally excellent 'Star Trippin'' this is a must-have read. Not just for those of us 40-plus aging rockers but aspiring journalists too. A unique voice with a distinctive style, Mick always delivers.

Sadly, they don't make 'em like this anymore. Either the bands or writers like Mick.

3.0 out of 5 stars Danger; Does NOT rock !! 2 Aug 2011
By Howard D. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed in this collection of stories by Mick Wall. For being at the epicenter of the UK music scene and a writer for Kerrang magazine , he makes most of it sound very mundane - I know it had to be rowdier than he reports here!There
are much better books on rock music; skip this one!
