In the Motley Cru vs G 'n' R war, I was definitely on the G 'n' R side - that was until they took the decision to rip off their fans by releasing Use Your Illusion as two half-albums. Fleecing your loyal fanbase isn't exactly the way to keep them loyal.
These days, it's mainly Hawkwind, Jethro Tull, and punk. Don't even like much modern stuff. Travis is okay, but I do want to kill Pete Waterman by making him listen to every boy/girl 'band' he's inflicted on me over the past 15 years or so. He should be locked up for crimes agains music.
I dont know about any wars, i think i was too young at that time (i was born 1980) You dont have to be a fan of Mötley Crüe to appreciate the perverted ugly stories there are in this book. In fact im not a big fan of them, but I like the trashy depraved sound of Shout at the devil at least..
You know your music so youd like the loads of stories there are about Alice Cooper, Ozzy and other legends of the time as well, im just saying this book will make you laugh through 400 easily read pages, its packed with photos as well, just those are worth the buy.
But then theres Lemmy's (Motörhead) autobiography as well, I havnt read it but its supposed to be good.
Sure Travis is allright, but they wont make my blood flow as much as Oasis, Cream, The Band or Sepultura. Ive mostly abandoned listening to new western music now, im tired of it all, nu rock, hip hop, pop - fuck it im going back to the roots. Try finding Exumas first album if you want to hear something strange you probably never heard before.
Heres a good metal song for you in the meantime
