Bang Your Head PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Bang Your Head free pdf Like an episode off VH1's Behind The Music on steroids, Band Your Head is an epic history of every band and every performer that has proudly worn the Heavy Metal Badge. This is a must-read homage to a music that's impossible to ignore. Charting the genesis of early metal with bands like Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden- the rise of metal to chart-topping phenomenon and heavy MTV rotation, featuring the likes of Def Leppard and Metallica- hitting its critical peak with bands like Guns N' Roses- disgrace during the "hair metal" 80s and a demise fueled by the explosion of the Seattle grunge scene and the "alternative" revolution, Bang Your Head is as funny as it's informative, and proves once and for all that there is more to metal that sin, sex and spandex. To write this exhaustive history, David Konow spent three years interviewing the bands, wives, girlfriends, ex-wives, groupies, managers, record company execs and anyone who was or is a part of the metal scene, including many of the band members often better know for their escapades and bad behaviour than for their musicianship. Nothing is left unsaid in this jaw-dropping, funny and entertaining chronicle of power ballads, outrageous outfits, big hair, bigger egos and testosterone-drenched debauchery.
