Overview

When the first edition of this book was published in 2004, it caused enormous controversy, with author Joel McIver's account of Metallica's rise and fall exposing the multiple myths that had surrounded the band for years.

For the first time, a book dared to tell the unvarnished truth about their early life on the San Francisco circuit, their heyday as the world's most uncompromising metal band and the notorious controversies which plagued their later years.

Napster, Playboy, Rehab, St Anger and their recent return to form with Death Magnetic are all covered in this updated edition which features brand new interviews on top of the original, still-groundbreaking material. This is the real Metallica story.

    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.

    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.
