GETCHA ROCKS OFF

MICK WALL    Book Number: 87805    Product format: Hardback

Sub-titled 'Life and Death on the Rock 'n' Roll Road', here is Ozzy the clown, Axl the lunatic, and Lemmy the hustler. Hanging out with rock stars, trying to steal their chicks, or throwing up over their guitars after launching into the hospitality a little too enthusiastically, music journalist Mick Wall spent much of the 1980s sprawled in limos and five-star hotels with the biggest rock band's in the world including Led Zeppelin, Guns n' Roses, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Motörhead and others. Concepts like 'the future' are disdained in favour of nights that last a week. 'It must have been around the third day when I decided I'd had enough. It wasn't that we'd run out of coke. We had enough of that to keep going forever. It was that I came to on the floor of my hotel room, looked around and realised there were no women left in the place. Not a single one.' There was only a biker-looking dude, all bad teeth and worse tattoos! Let the good times roll with this 'whore', the man who's seen it all, done it all and writes with all the excitement of a 'Sounds' Wardour Street journalist, the kid in the sweet shop with all the famous musicians around him, swearing, enjoying the tattooed tits and mental girls. Money and name-dropping galore. 292pp in paperback. Remainder mark.
