What the critics have to say about Mick Wall
Enter Night: A Biography of metallica
'Enter Night, Mick Wall's biography of Metallica confirms this grizzled veteran to be as engaged and waspishly authoritative a chronicler of metal's most hirsute behemoths as Barry Miles has been for the Beats'
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
'[A] flaming juggernaut of heavy-metal biog... the author writes a deceptively casual-looking, sincere but half-amused prose.'
'It takes a writer of Mick Walls' pedigree and calibre... to present the whole wild, wonderful and emotionally draining tale all over again and make it as consistently fascinating and momentous as ENTER NIGHT... Until they return, this is the definitive account of heavy metal's biggest band of all.'
Appetite for Destruction
'Appetite for Destruction has the best of Wall's Kerrang! features, each bolstered by new, insightful post-scripts. You won't read a funnier rock book in 2010.'
'Wall was the lead feature writer for Kerrang! magazine in the 1980s, and this hilarious tome is a collection of his finest moments... Wall had a great knack from getting under the skin of interviewees.'
THE BIG ISSUE
'Sadly, they don't make 'em like this anymore. Either the bands or writers like Mick.'
AMAZON CUSTOMER REVIEW
Praise for When Giants Walked The Earth
'So this is the big one: a fat, juicy biography of the biggest band ever...Mick Wall, the veteran rock journalist, lays it all bare in a book that can only be described as definitive.'
'As well as being the most complete account yet of a great British rock band, When Giants Walked the Earth is, as its name implies, a document of a bygone age....Wall has done his subject proud.' SUNDAY TIMES
'It deftly strikes the balance between lofty authority and finding a way to get inside the heads of its subjects'
'The definitive account of rock legends Led Zeppelin'
'That Wall can add so much fresh details to the Led Zep story is in itself an extraordinary achievements. That he manages to humanise these planet-striding giants while doing so puts this book into the "definitive" category.'
CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE
'We've read about the booze, drugs, devil worship and deviant sex... Mick Wall delves a loot deeper into the dark stuff'
Praise For W.A.R. The Unauthorized Biography of W. Axl Rose
'Mick Wall is qualified to tell this story...he has assembled a catalogue of lawsuits, sackings and all-round appalling behaviour which, taken together, rivals the best moments of the Borgias or certain middle-European dictators.
'Axl Rose is one of the greatest frontmen that has lived. Mick Wall's Axl Rose explains why.'
'Mick Wall has written not only the best biography that has ever landed on my desk, but something that stretches way beyond feedback and screaming guitars... a profound examination of the pain of fame.'
'Wall's fascinating study of one of rock's superstars paints a portrait of a lonely, lost boy who seeks salvation in rock'n'roll, but never finds happiness.'
'Earthy and unpretentious... refreshing.'
Praise For Star Trippin'
'Wall is locked in a cupboard by Poison, attends Rock In Rio and discusses masturbation with Anthony Keidis... The style is earthy and unpretentious [and] refreshing given the conservatism of today's music press.'
'Tales from the frontline by one of Kerrang!'s most infamous scribes... confrontational, irreverent, self-indulgent but ultimately insightful.' KKKKK.
'Wall understood like no one how to really get close to the stars... In the end he even wrote down the truth about Axl Rose only to be called a "motherfucker" in the Guns N' Roses song 'Get In The Ring' This was actually an accolade, as it proved how well he had hit the nail on the head.'
'Give Wall an assignment and you never quite know what kind of story he will deliver. Except that it will be enthralling, entertaining and scurrilous as hell.'
Praise For Paranoid: Black Days With Sabbath & Other Horror Stories
'In his amoral, happy-go-lucky search for the next drink or expenses-paid trip, Wall fearlessly exposes much of the mediocrity and sheer hollowness that lies just beneath the surface glamour of life on the pop media-celebrity circuit… Dark, twisted and frequently hilarious.'
'This is the tale of a writer's travels in nihilism… Up one minute, down the next, Wall teeters on self-destruct.'
'A repulsively compelling account of life on the road and other rock'n'roll stories, the heroin scenes make Irvine Welsh look like the Teletubbies.'
'Mick Wall will never work in the music industry again. Not if the men in the corridors of power learn about his utter contempt for [them].'
'The lurid nature of the author's life proves that even stronger, more hopeless and cynical dramas can be found behind the scenes in the music industry.'
Kind Words From Famous Friends
'Mick Wall… you can suck my fuckin' dick!'
W. AXL ROSE, GUNS ‘N’ ROSES
'Axl is an asshole. I fuckin' love Mick Wall.'
