'...Neil Daniels' first book [is] an essential purchase for Halford and Priest fans. A comprehensive and informative read, this is true British steel!' BIG CHEESE
Reseña del editor
Influenced by the legendary British blues-rock bands of the sixties such as Cream and Led Zeppelin, the true story of Judas Priest reveals how a group of poor, working-class lads followed in their heroes footsteps. This is the first definitive biography of the metal Gods! Judas Priest's entire history is explored from their deprived beginnings in 1960s West Bromwich as an entirely different band. This title includes over 50 interviews with prominent musicians, producers, record company personnel, journalists, childhood friends and ex-members. From their earliest obscure demos to their controversial contract with Gull, records and breakthrough success with CBS, every album and tour is examined. This is the story of constant line-up changes; sell out tours, battles with American Conservative Fundamentalists, the complete breakdown of the band, and their re-ignition with a new singer in 1996. Finally, their hugely successful reunion in 2003 with Rob Halford - the self-proclaimed Metal God - brought the band back to the attention of the world's greatest stages.Ver Descripción del producto

Inaccuracies abound, poor editing and writing everywhere. Do not waste your money on this trash. Or the recent book on Judas Priest by Martin Popoff. It's another inaccurate, biased account with terrible writing and editing.
Didn't anyone assist these authors on their projects? Didn't they employ fact checking into their research? Not at all. This book, and the other one, gloss over major events in the band's history, and dwell on same-ol-stuff we all know already. It's as if they took a look at the Judas Priest info pages online...another poorly edited, but well-intentioned Judas Priest web page....and quoted/lifted info without checking the veracity of the info.
There is still not one well done Judas Priest biography, either in print or online. Maybe it's time for me to do one...
Avoid this book at all costs! And the other one, too. You'll not learn one new thing about Priest, but you'll learn that these authors did not do their homework. What a waste of time and money! Beware!
Some "writers" and "editors" out there really lack a single grain of shame.
This books is copy and paste all around, and copying and pasting from a lot of incorrect informations / sources. I consider it an offense to Judas Priest, not a biography about this great band.
If you want a fair, although sometimes long winded, assesement of the band get Martin Popoff's illustrated history and dont waste your time with this mess.
