5.0 out of 5 stars SUMO CYCO If you haven't already, see them live ASAP.........OUTSTANDING!!!, 10 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Lost in Cyco City (Audio CD)
Sumo cyco, a band I came across at a Fozzy gig last week!.. WOW..... not only did they steel the show, they stole my heart!
Awesome music and outstanding live, I had to immediately buy the CD. Best move ever.... it is awesome. Such energy. It is the direction NO DOUBT should have taken!!!!! that is a huge compliment as the vocals are a superb compliment to the metal music. I am a very happy customer who has found his new brand.
SUMO CYCO. A new era of metal for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Other autobiographies are ass clowns, 13 Sept. 2011
Wow, I thought the first book was good but this legacy just keeps getting better and he is working on a third, the sexy beast. Unlike many others before him he has followed suit with Foley and Edge and written himself an awesome story and insight into Chris Irvine rather than just his wrestling character. Jericho is both funny and frank as well as humble and easy to relate to with how he has written the book. It is an indepth account of his life both in the ring and on the stage "Fozzy" and a fair bit of the inbetween stuff that very few ever talk about. If you liked the first book then this is a no brainer buy this book now. If you are new then you must read the first book "around the world in spandex" because this is the second part of Jericho's life (where he joined the WWE from WCW). I just cannot wait for the third instalment!!! In short this second coming of his autobiographies is awesome and makes all other pretenders to the throne look like ass clowns. Buy this book you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rated R super author, 27 Aug. 2008
I have read many Wrestling autobiographies and very few come close to Mick Foley's, yet Adam Copeland on EDGE is right up there. The reason this book is so good is that like Foley, Edge wrote the book himself which makes the experience much more personal and funnier as nothing has been lost in translation by a ghost writer. That is the main problem with other autobiographies such as Stone Cold's, HBK's, Hulk Hogan's and even the legendary Ric Flair, but not this. The book covers Edge's life up to the return to the ring after neck surgery. The book is begging a sequel on his retirement and I for one can't wait. The book makes me watch Edge's in ring performances in a different light, and one with far more respect. A must have wrestling autobiography.

5.0 out of 5 stars beards are still cool, 17 Jun. 2008
Again Mick Foley has produced an excellent book. This time he recalls in greater depth the WWE era of his career. There are some truly awesome tales in this book, such as the penis suplex, the rock n sock connection to name but two.
Mick does get caught up in some political aspects of the business towards the end of the book which is a bit too heavy going, but this does not spoil the read. The rest is fast paced, funny and heart warming. Some find it a bit random in places, but that just makes it a more personal experience.
Moral of the story, wear pants under your lycra.
Buy it, read it and pass on the wisdom of wrestling.

Have a Nice Day: A Tale of Blood and Sweatsocks
by Mick Foley
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £6.14

5.0 out of 5 stars beards are cool, 17 Jun. 2008
On reading this book you know you are getting Micks story because he wrote it himself, unlike most ghost written vague autobiographies.
It is a heavy going book but for that reason you are getting all the facts in an epic tale of Mick foleys life. An excellent read, from a brutally honest family man. You can tell its a great book by the number of reviews (over 100) and it still maintains a 5 star. Buy it, read it, then buy Foley is good, and do it all again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The peoples champion, 8 April 2008
What can I say about this book that has not already been said. bguyfghugyg. Yup thats about it.
I am a massive motorcycle racing fan, and a stalker fan too so unsuprisingly the book was awesome.
This book is very easy to read due to the level of humour and down to earth feel about the man himself.
Not self absorbed and arrogant like Foggy, oh no. Chris recalls all the good and bad times as they happened, not with excuses and bullsh**.
Who can forget the heartbreak of 2000, or the elation of 2006 assen.
Not to mention the stories of the skinny little boy growing up crashing everything he rode!!!!
Any fan of motorsport, I urge you to buy and read this book. You will not be dissapointed. The stalker is not only the housewives favourite and peoples champ, he is a down to earth honest racer through and through. His story is a lesson to us all....... crashing hurts...

4.0 out of 5 stars His name is HickenBOTTOM he hee, 8 April 2008
Well as a wrestler HBK is definately a legend, as a writer he is intercontinental champ...Not quite world heavyweight champ, that honour remains with the nature boy Ric Flair whose book was far superior.
Shawns book is far from poor, on the contrary, but it lacks the gritty balls that Flair's book hung out on display. You see, Shawn is a born again christian, and as a result is not proud of some of the things he did outside the ring, but where as this would have been awesome reading, it is instead hurriedly washed over with little detail. That is my only gripe with the book, because everything else about the wrestling is outstanding.
Reading about the matches brought back the nostalgic feeling i love about wrestling, re-living the matches I grew up watching. And as for the infamous Montreal screw job....Just buy the book and enjoy that trip down memory lane guided by the showstopper himself.
I've got two words for ya BUY IT.


To Be the Man (WWE)
To Be the Man (WWE)
by Ric Flair
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars he beat the man damn it......woooo, 18 Dec. 2007
This review is from: To Be the Man (WWE) (Paperback)
This book is like the man himself, truly awesome. Ric is very graphic in depicting his life story, and despite his wealth and fame still made me feel sorry for him. He goes into great detail about the wild days and nights, which in themselves made for some fantastic stories. Highly amusing and disturbing at the same time. You gotta respect the man after what he's been through and the torment he put his body through, all in the name of entertainment for the fans. I found this book very difficult to put down, hankering for more stories about the boys and behind the scenes gossip. This book delivers plenty in both these categories. Flair tells in stark truth, his opinions on those in charge and the athletes themselves. A truly "fan"tastic book, if this is the only wrestling book you read, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't call him Ash, 16 Dec. 2007
I think it really is time for Bruce to "crack out the champagne baby". If reading "if chins could kill" wet your appetite, then this book delivers a fantastic main course.
Dont be fooled into thinking that this book is a sequential autobiography, it is not. but instead is a story of hilarious proportions about Bruce auditioning for that elusive A list movie role.
You can tell this book is a parody of Bruces life in gaining that so much deserved stardom. Without ruining the book for you, the book is all about Bruce trying to nail the role of a doorman for a hotel who acts as a pillar of romantic and life knowledge for those who come through his doors. What ensues is an hilarious tale of bruce infecting all the stars of the movie and those behind it, with his B movie ways.
Bruce finds himself in all kinds of trouble trying to research for his role. You can see that Bruce is drawing and elaborating on his experiences, with all the gusto of a true comic genius. It would appear that he shares more with his evil dead character ash than just looks, he has also inherited his luck, or severe lack of it.
This book is a must read for any Campbell fan, and indeed anyone who enjoys a funny light hearted tale of woe and elation.
I salute you Bruce, or do we all have to call you Foyle. An accomplished B movie star and writer.
I can't wait for the next book. Groovy indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars so near yet so far, 22 Nov. 2007
A crackin book filled with an heroic story that could have come out of hollywood. Aaron was a true player in the bike world and an icon for the fans of the sport. this book is a must read for any fan of two wheeled racing. He may never have taken the title off Foggy, but in the book stakes Aaron whups Foggys ass.
