Why is a book published on Motorhead with not one author interview of the band members?
There is no personal history: familial, societal whatever. Do not buy. I don't want to give it any stars but the review won't let me submit this without doing so. But one star is too much.
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.
Fair enough, I enjoyed reading parts of interviews that I'd not come across before but I think that Mr. McIver is pushing it slightly to claim authorship. I reckon ''compiler'' would have summed his work up far better.
My advice to the author would be to stop subjecting the rock and metal world to any more torture. To any Motorhead fans out there...spend your money on something more deserving of your cash.
