As Kerrang magazine celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, Mick Wall collected some of his best interviews and articles, including remarkable encounters with such stars of the era as W. Axl Rose, Jimmy Page, Jon Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Ritchie Blackmore and Lars Ulrich. With new introductions to each chapter, readers will travel to such far-flung rock'n'roll outposts as Los Angeles, New York, Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, Dublin, Berlin, and Ealing. Irreverent, funny, offensive to anyone who ever disliked very loud rock music, and occasionally quite serious in its analysis of the most famous people who made that music, this is writing that pulsates with rock's own juddering rhythms.

About the Author

Currently writing for Mojo magazine, Mick Wall has been one of Britain's best-known rock writers for more than 25 years. As well as voicing his opinions on television and radio, he is also the author of several best-selling rock biographies. Back in the 1980s, however, Mick Wall was the star writer of Kerrang, where his memorable, roller coaster style of journalism helped turn an unfashionable monthly magazine into the world-beating weekly title it is today.
