Total Disrespect for a Rock Giant
I could not believe anything I was reading. This mans story was based totally on his own opion with no supporting facts>hence he didn't even interview the band. I was disgusted. Not worth the money I paid for it. Even the used book store down the street only offered $5.00 for it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A disappointing attempt trumpeted as revelatory
Author subverts his own work by falling upon 'everything after the Black album is worthless' cliches in the later chapters of the book. This bio purports to be a truly even-handed, open-eyed take on a complex subject/band, but doesn't deliver. There are no original interviews with the band -- a fact the author weakly tries to cover by claiming that such would have been antithetical to the 'unauthorized' status of this bio -- and issues of personal taste/belief are presented as 'myth'-busting fact. All the more disappointing because of the potential evident in the writing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
