That's the book I featured on the news page a few months back, and we even ran a competition to win copies :)
The limited hardback is very nice, and while I haven`t read it all properly yet it looks very good.
I have a page about it under 'books' which also has page samples courtesy of the publishers.

been thinking about picking this up.
I have several of Popoff's books, and they are usually very informative unless you are one of the die hards who knows EVERYTHING about the band in question.

Its a nice book and has quite a few quotes i have not seen before from some of the producers/writing partners etc. They use some of the wrong era photos at the wrong times but not that often and there is an obvious bias toward certain material but that is never obtrusive or an issue really.
considering how terrible the cover is (and seriously it is sooo bad it hurts my eyes just to look at it) you would expect a car crash but the rest of the book is very good.
Mine was hardback came in a nice black box with a few A4 sized prints of (admittedly mediocre) photos of him live. All said i was very happy with it.

Thanks for that, just this minute I've ordered the paper back version. I would have bought the hardback one but couldn't find it on Amazon. Any suggestions where I could get this?

At the risk of sounding rude (not my intention) I again point you to the page I originally linked to on this site, the first paragraph of which includes "limited edition (500 copies) hardback version was available through publisher WymerUK's own website." and has a link to the page on their site where you can order it. :)

As far as I know that is the only place to get the deluxe edition.

Well it arrived today and first glance it looks good with a lot of information. Okay a bit expensive, but glad I bought it. Christmas came early. :blues:
