4.0 out of 5 stars Lacks balance, but a great read nonetheless, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Metallica: Enter Night: The Biography (Paperback)
I've followed and enjoyed Mick Wall throughout his 'rock mag' years, bought his Black Sabbath book, and enjoyed it. Enjoyed this one thoroughly too, particularly the recounting of his 'One on One's' at the start of each chapter. However, the book concentrates so much on the formative years of the band, presumably because Mick had the most access at that point, either due to his own or the bands desires (I'm going with his, based on his opinion of everything after The Black Album (Lulu aside)), that the period from 93-09 (16 years) is dealt with in 113 pages, compared to the 347 pages for the bands first 11 years. Despite that, there is so much depth in the material in the early (and undoubtedly finest) years that should satisfy any 'proper' fan. Interviews and recollections with friends of the band, other Big 4 luminaries, and from Mick himself both are insightful and thought provoking. Characterisation of the massive changes in band members personalities over the years is also a great read. A must-have for fans of the band.
