5.0 out of 5 stars motorhead - in the studio, 16 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Motorhead - In the Studio (Hardcover)
I'm not one for book reviews, but after reading this book I have to say something.

If you like Motorhead you have to get this. Everything about this book is worth having, from the info inside it to the excellent cover.

Personally I think there are far too may books about lots of bands , but hardly any about Motohread. Thankfully though the few books there are in publication about Motorhead are total quality and this is no exception.

Motorhead - in the studio details the making of every Motorhead album from the early days right up to Motorizer in 2008. Interesting to see how the band works , ie how they come up with the songs , how they are recorded etc: The book makes for nice reading and paints a good atmospheric picture of what it was actually like to be there at the time the albums were recorded.

I especially like the fact that this book pays as much attention to Motorhead 1993 onwards as it does to early Bronze age Motorhead. Many publications or articles about Motorhead seem to think they retired in 1982 for some reason unbeknown to me? I don't understand this when anyone with a brain can tell you their last 4 albums have been the best so far.

As I said I'm not one for book reviews so to conclude, this book is well worth buying, gives a good insight into the process of making a Motoralbum, the working relationships between band and studio personnel and also some interesting factoids as to what was going on in the Motorhead camp at the times these albums where made.

If your a Motorhead fan buy it. Simple.

If your not a Motorhead fan.................you should be.
