1.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead "Biography", 16 Aug 2011
I was really looking forward to a "proper" Motorhead biography at last, having been a fan for 30 years. Unfortunately, this isn't it, it's just a collection of various Lemmy quotes that we've all heard many times before, and is a missed opportunity.
There are no biographies of the other band members (great as the Lemster is, he always needed a decent band around him- I want to know about Eddie, Mikkey etc, even Brian!). There is no musical analysis. There is no cultural assessment. There is, unfortunately, precious little to catch the attention. Very disappointing.
