4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Yet Frustrating., 8 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: W.A.S.P. Sting in the Tale (Hardcover)
"Sting In The Tale" was obviously very much a labor of love for Mr Upton. His love & passion for all things W.A.S.P. shine through on the pages of the book.

On the plus side - The interviews, there are some very in depth interviews with tons of ex-members that are worth getting the book for alone. The detail also about the early years of the band are also informative & interesting & there are some great color pics.

On the negative side - There are a number of errors. For example a picture of the Headless Children line-up is captioned as the Idol line-up, a number of release dates are incorrect (Headless was released on the 3rd April in the UK, 15th Worldwide) & the discography at the back is also sparse & incomplete (no track listings & complete omission of the "I Am One" single). Also certain periods of the band are dealt with very quickly - 1993 to 1995 gets barely 4 pages despite 2 albums being released & W.A.S.P. being disbanded by Blackie in late 93.

Hopefully any future editions will correct the errors & maybe expand some more on certain eras of the band.

If you are a W.A.S.P. fan though - you need to read it. And to Mr Upton - Thanks for putting the book together.
