This review is from: Overkill: The Untold Story of Motorhead (Paperback)
Any book that features my favourite band is always a welcome addition and, when I saw the title of this one, I was really looking forward to reading it. Sadly, there are so many glaring mistakes and dodgy opinions from Joel McIver that I ended up fuming a few times before I'd finished it.
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.

Well said Paddy! I'm about half way through it, and i couldn't agree more. Theres nothing "untold" in this story at all is there? In fact a lot of it remains untold eg Wurzell & Philthy's exits from the band are not covered in any depth, in fact thats what this book lacks isn't it? - substance!
