Classic Metallica Reading
on 14 May 2015
I just finished this last night and I don't necessarily agree with the opinions of Mick but setting that aside this is a great book, firstly Mick doesn't blow too much smoke up Mets asses and keeps his opinions real, which is to be admired at the risk of invoking the Hetfield rage (touched on a few times in the book), even though his opinion of Justice and Death doesn't seem right considering the positive feel he directs at Load, but this book is well written, informative and in general correct with the fans feelings of Metallica from the 80s up until the present.
The early years stuff in light reading, the Cliff stuff is pretty heavy going, Load era is cringy and then there is the feel good factor towards the end where we get the old Metallica back with DM, the only down side is the book confirms Metallica don't view themselves as full on recording artist anymore....downer
