4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but rubbish for a wet Sunday afternoon, 23 Jun 2014
To call the acting wooden would be an insult to trees.
Nice weather and Jason Durr's screen wife is quite cute.

3.0 out of 5 stars Most of this material is in the public domain already., 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wild Tales (Hardcover)
If you've read Crosby's autobiographies, then a lot of this is already familiar.
It's the tale of a Northern Lad who sing in a band, but the others just like pints of beer. Our Graham smokes dope, and begins to write songs, go to America, sing with 2 friends and a passing psycho, sometimes, takes photographs, sculpts, and does his bit for world peace.
Photos are slightly familiar and fuzzy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Holding Operation?, 7 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ric Plester adds a degree of bombast to the Andy Sneap productions, but a depth to the King Of Metal tracks.
The 2 "new" tracks are ok, slightly too long and don't really give any indication as to BB's future direction.
Long time fans will have most of these tracks already; M...........rs has only been available on a Japanese issue, and it's quite Wolfsbane=y.
One track has synths on it;liked that quite a lot and Blaze, IMHO, should perhaps pursue the guitar and synth. backing on his next real album.
MY 3 fave tracks from Blood and Belief were missing.

Ordered one day, arrived the next.
For the price, excellent. My old BlackBerry official leather case lasted 6 months; this case was a 7th of the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timely Intervention, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book could not have been published at a better time. When Messrs. Snowden and Assange show that we are all being watched by Big Brother, often quite illegally; when photographers are prevented by the Met. Police from taking shots of public landmarks; when more and more legal protection is given to huge corporate bodies, Urban Exploration not only is exhaustive and exciting, but necessary for the spirit to rise above the routine.
Battles against petty bureaucracy, thrilling photography, the thrill of the chase, all set against a rigorous academic backdrop. Ironically the book also shows how the well guarded can become an open door to determination, energy and lateral thinking. An irony that our security services find impossible to see. Urban Exploration leaves no footprints.
Just before reading this book I took some rubbish to our new privately owned "tip", which looked like a space silo set from an early Bond film. I took a Blackberry pic to send to my wife by text. I felt the presence of a yellow jacketed Security guard by my side, asking what I was doing and had I got permission from the "company" to take pics! They were afraid of "competitors" looking at their systems to gain an industrial edge. It was only my manner that persuaded him that I was just visually fascinated by the operation. He retreated.
Buy this book, you will never look at "No Entry, Private for The Elite" signs again in the same manner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetic, 23 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a Jazz fan and a Surfing enthusiast [watching from the safety of the beach] I can well understand the link between improvisation and surfing. The book is poetry, not a word is wasted, each word packs meaning; I would love to read his work for his PH.D. The photos are sublime, full of energy and create a subtext.
The only downside is the time, energy and money tracking down the jazz albums noted in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terminated gets it right!, 13 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Promise And Terror (Audio CD)
Terminated has said everything I wanted to say about this album!
The last 4 tracks are a song suite in which Blaze comes from a dark place and finds a kind of resolution to the past.Lyrically very dark but ultimately uplifting.
I love Metal because it has power and intelligence; this is a prime example.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting!, 31 Jan 2010
Most of the narrative is well known, but it is Larry's skill as a writer that makes this a gripping biography!
First of all, Larry is a skillful writer, able to marshall evidence and present it in a convincing manner.
Secondly he is able to skirt his way through obvious legal constraints when dealing with the business side of Blaze's career; he is especially good at hinting at the real "reasons" behind Blaze's career with Maiden. Look at the episodes involving the in ear monitors in the dressing room, and the detuning debate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blaze Bayley Band's Best, 21 Dec 2009
Fans of the band will welcome this package as it contains an excellent overview of Blaze Bayley's work as a solo artist, with just the occasional nod to his Iron Maiden days. The band, and it is a band, are on top form, the sound is live, and picky people might be able to see chances for overdubbing that have, thankfully, been passed by.
Forceful, Melodic Metal.

If you get a chance get the DVD too!
