1.0 out of 5 stars Complete waste of money!, 5 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolute garbage product. Water feed to main shower is fine but as soon as I turn the lever to send the feed to the hand held attachment nothing happens! I get a slight trickle through the main head and a build up of hot water pressure in the valve making it extremely hot to the touch and extremely dangerous for children. It baffles me how Kes can send out items which are being reported as faulty and involve the use of hot water. Irresponsible......? I returned this for a refund.

Absolute garbage boots. The leather is way too thin and is splitting over the toe area. Plus I'm not even convinced mine are a pair! You get what you pay for I guess.....

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 7 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose it's true in you get what you pay for. It lasted 3 weeks then fell apart with the inside cracking into 2 pieces. I've just received my replacement in the post today. To be fair to the supplier they were very apologetic and arranged a new one.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Airbrushed History, 30 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone who is a fan of this band or just a casual observer will most likely know of their bumpy history. The firings of band members, fall outs, on stage threats etc are all well documented but the actual members of the band have never really talked about it. Books have been written - the excellent 'To The Limit' by Marc Elliot did a great job of telling the stories despite The Eagles and their 'Satan manager' Irving Azoff doing their very best to stop it being sold.
So the release of this 2 part documentary with full input by the band members past and present, producers and managers was eagerly anticipated. We should have known better. Don Henley and Glen Frey get the massive majority of screen time to the point where you would think the band was a duo. Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon are criminally under used and their views which may not tow the official party line are removed. The more this 2 part documentary goes on, the more it becomes an ego boosting film for Don and Glen that almost mirrors a party political broadcast. The fact that these 2 didnt speak at all for nearly 10 years is non existent if you believe this film.
Glen Frey especially does not come over well at all. He openly brags about insisting other less important band members were paid considerably less for the Hell Freezes Over reunion. Sure, he is very proud and protective of their legacy but humility seems to have left him a long long time ago.
Most disappointing is the extremely disrespectful attitude towards Don Felder. His contribution to the band is deliberately over looked, especially the fact he wrote the music to their biggest hit 'Hotel California'. If you believe Don and Glen he presented them a very rough basic riff and they modeled it into the song we know. The facts leading up to Felder's firing are again deliberately removed or ignored and the guitarist is left holding back the tears as he ends his interview saying how he misses his band mates.
On the positive side, there are some great clips and interesting insights with until now unseen footage, but it all left me feeling as a huge opportunity missed.
The bonus dvd with classic concert footage is beautifully restored (although far too short) and shows just how great a live band they were, but rather ironically the highlight of the show is Randy Meisner singing beautifully on Take It To The Limit. Very shortly after this he was fired for not doing as he was told by Glen Frey. All too predictable and dare I say it - they aren't half the band they were without Meisner and Felder.

Richer Than God: Manchester City, Modern Football and Growing Up
Richer Than God: Manchester City, Modern Football and Growing Up
by David Conn

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I was hoping for, 28 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being one of the many suffering and miserable City fans over the years, the sudden success with the F.A Cup victory then the unbelievable climax to last seasons Premier League was a massive lift to us all.
The story of that success; Thaskin Shinawatra buying the club, injecting millions that maybe were not his to inject, then the take over by one of the worlds richest men and the subsequent huge financial outlay - well we all know the story don't we? Whether you are a City fan trying to justify it or an angry fan of another club accusing City of buying success and killing football, its still a fascinating story.
And so I approached this book hoping for some insight into whats gone on at City to get to this point and yes you do get that. But it all becomes rather swamped under the 'money and business' side of it all.
I loved the Authors reminisces about growing up with City, the ruining of a very promising club by Peter Swales the Chairman and Malcolm Allison the returning hero and the eventual drop from top flight to obscurity, but so much more could and should have been written about it all. Where are the interviews with former managers? God knows there was enough of them!
I'm sorry but I found as the Author got deeper and deeper into the ins and outs of club takeovers etc I got more and more bored and found myself skipping pages just to find bits I could understand.
One thing I did learn from it all is yes City (and some other clubs too) ARE killing football and its really hard to face up to that. Like the Author I have fallen a bit out of love with the club now and if I'm honest - top flight football in general.
If you are looking for nostalgia and ultimate triumph as I was then you may be disappointed with this book, but if you want a big bite of a reality sandwich and want to know whats REALLY going on in the Premier League then give it a go. But you may end up cancelling your Sky sports and going to support a local team instead....

Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: The Autobiography
Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: The Autobiography

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart, funny and honest, 23 May 2011
I've been a fan of Aerosmith for many years and have enjoyed reading about their exploits; the legendary drug use, the label of Americas most dangerous band and Tyler and Perrys moniker of The Toxic Twins has made for entertaining headlines and stories over the years.
The bands autobiography Walk this Way written with Stephen Davis (Hammer of the Gods) was revealing and at times quite moving, and after the recent soap opera drama surrounding the band and Tyler in particular this was always going to be a 'must read' for rock fans.
It doesn't disappoint. Tyler's way with words and lascivious vocabulary make you feel as though he is narrating the story in the room with you. His failed marriages, years of drug abuse that left him penniless and the band splintered, its all here in total and complete honesty. While other stars would be quick to blame others for their misfortunes and falls from grace, Steven Tyler holds his hands up to his mistakes and weaknesses and seems to be genuinely trying to learn from them.
What is clear by the end of the book is the love he has for all the women that passed through his life, his children, his musical brothers in Aerosmith and the music they make.
My only gripe (and its a small one) is you never really find out what the future holds for the band.
