    I sincerely hope David Konow didn t receive any payment for writing this book All it is is a compilation of media tabloid stories based around 80s glam rock, with an irritatingly long section on Kiss.Konow clearly doesn t have a very good grasp on his subject matter Hes not alone, though You ll find a lot of heavy metal books written like this old, out of touch journalists who think metal stopped being made on January 1st, 1990 I guess the main complaint is just how mislead the front cov I sincerely hope David Konow didn t receive any payment for writing this book All it is is a compilation of media tabloid stories based around 80s glam rock, with an irritatingly long section on Kiss.Konow clearly doesn t have a...

    Warning this book is not about true heavy metal but focuses instead on the horror that was the glam of the late eighties and early nineties The stories are interesting enough, but metal pioneers like Black Sabbath are barely examined If you re looking for s...

    Right from the beginning the author states that he s a fan of the Hair Metal era, because he lived through it, and that s the main focus of this book Thrash Metal gets some references, and Death Metal and Black Metal are only mentioned once Anyway, it s a good book to underst...

    Pretty good read Major bands in the genres of heavy metal were the focus Too much attention was given to GNR for my liking Wishof the development of heavy metal would have been discussed and lesser known bands mentioned, but nevertheless it kept me reading.

    This book reads like a Wikipedia article about a handful of bands that cracked the billboard 1 This is not a book about Metal Don t waste your time.

    Metal Health is an album by Quiet Riot That record changed my life For real It s still one of my favorite albums of all time, ever When I saw a book who s title was culled from the lyrics of the title track off Metal Health,I knew I had to read it Unfortunately, I was so high when I read it that the only part I remember is when the author was making fun of seminal indie rock band, Sebadoh I was like, Hey dude, Lou Barlow was in Deep Wound, and without Deep Wound we might not have Grindcor Metal Health is an album by Quiet Riot That r...

    I am hopelessly the 80 s rock chick so when I saw this on the library shelf the other day, I had to grab it Overall a solid overview of this underrepresented genre The book came out in 2002, so manychapters could be added in the near decade since There were a few items where I had to share with my husband stuck in the 80 s with me but nothing ...

    Lame As history this is sorely lacking Just check out the bands given most mentions in the index Metallica and Black Sabbath sure, but also Kiss, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen clearly Konow is biased towards the glammier,hard rock and commercially vi...

    I enjoyed it think of this book as the mainstream flipside to Ian Christe s Sound of the Beast I preferred Christe s book, but Bang Your Head givesdetail to the pop MTV glam bands that Christe largely...

    This book is not a history of heavy metal so much as it is a batch of anecdotes on the commercial metal explosions of the 1970s and 80s if you want an actual history of metal, I highly recommend Sound of the Beast.
