By A Customer
This review is from: No-One Knows: The Queens Of The Stone Age Story (Hardcover)
The book is a short history of Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age, and while it is definitely a good read, it rarely goes into depth. It's mostly made up of quotes from interviews from various sources over the years, although the author does add his own thoughts and reviews each major album. Most of the interviews and photos can be found online for free, so this is probably for someone who just wants a quick history of the band, and Joel McIver does narrate it well for the most part.
The interview with Nick Oliveri, dealing with his dismissal from the band, is overshadowed by the recent revelations from Homme, and so doesnt give the full picture, although that's hardly the author's fault.
There are a few factual errors and editing mistakes, and there is much more to the band's story than you'll find in this book, but until a more comprehensive version comes along, this is a fine compromise.
