  • Black Sabbath : Born again - black sabbath in the eightes and nineties (martin popoff)

    In this scintillating sequel to Sabotage! Black Sabbath in the Seventies, Martin Popoff blows up the kaleidoscopic narrative of the Sabs over the ensuing twenty years, dissecting each and every of the band’s ten studio albums and two (and-a-half) live albums produced over that time period. So this is the book where we hear the gripes, snipes, swipes and thumbs-up likes from Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes, Tony Martin and finally once more Ozzy Osbourne, as they remark upon this institution coddled by the anchor of the band Tony Iommi, who valiantly held Black Sabbath together through many years of blood, sweat and Tyrs. Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules, Live Evil, Born Again, Seventh Star, TheE ternal Idol, Headless Cross, Tyr, Dehumanizer, Cross Purposes, Forbiddena nd finally, extensively broken down, Reunion… they’re all here, song by song, the hirings and the firings highlighted and explained. Incorporating talk from over 60 interviews conducted with band members and other relevant parties over 25 years, make no mistake—this is the most in-depth examination of the band during this timeframe ever executed. So come one and all, re-love modern-era Black Sabbath all over again—you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much dastardly doom there is from Tony Iommi that you need to know and embrace once again.

  • Black Sabbath : Sabotage! black sabbath in the seventies (martin popoff)

    Quite simply, Martin Popoff’s Sabotage! Black Sabbath in the Seventies marks the most intensive analysis of Black Sabbath’s first eight albums ever attempted. This is a big book — 129,000 words long, every song analysed in detail, loads of first-hand interview footage from close to 50 interrogations. In the baking, Popoff interviewed all of the principles — Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward — repeatedly, along with myriad other folks who are part of this remarkable tale. Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master of Reality, Vol 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage, Never Say Die and Technical Ecstasy… these are the building blocks of heavy metal, and within these awesome audio chapters, Popoff breaks down each and every song on each of these reverberating and cannonating records, while Geezer offers explanation of the lyrics, Bill poetically explains why these songs resonate and Tony and Oz look on with their characteristic sense of bemusement. Also touched upon are the band’s torrid troubles with money and management and drugs and booze, as well as tour tales, album cover stories and production tips ‘n’ tricks. Also included are two four-page sections of colour plates. All told, it’s everything needed to send the reader back to the catalogue, headphones on, for a second listen of this landmark run of records spanning 1970’s self-titled debut to 1978’s Never Say Die, the shambling, controversial last gasp before Ozzy’s shocking ouster from the ranks.

  • Powell, Cozy : Dance with the devil, the cozy powell story (laura shenton)

    Ritchie Blackmore once said, “You can’t get any better than Cozy, you know. He’s always up there on stage going crazy, he always pushes me on when I look round. He always gives me that incentive to play because Cozy won’t let anybody take it easy.” He wasn't wrong. Cozy Powell was a talented, reliable and versatile drummer. A drummer of such calibre that he played with Jeff Beck, Rainbow, Michael Schenker, Whitesnake, Emerson and Lake, Black Sabbath and Brian May as well as being a hugely in-demand session player. But before all that he initially came to prominence with three Mickie Most produced, top twenty singles under his own name. An extraordinary feat for an instrumentalist, and a drummer at that. Cozy Powell's career as a musician is a story that needs to be told. Author Laura Shenton MA LLCM DipRSL has a Masters degree in “Music Since 1900” from Liverpool Hope University. Aside from her detailed research, her understanding of music adds an insightful angle on Cozy Powell’s abilities in this, the first and long overdue biography of this highly talented and much missed musician that presents Powell's career in all its glory.

  • UFO : Lettin' go: ufo in the 80's & 90's (martin popoff)

    Having written the first book ever on UFO, 2005's long out-of-print Shoot Out the Lights, Martin Popoff, author of over seventy rock books, has now greatly expanded and rewritten the later years material from that title, bringing us now Lettin' Go: UFO in the `80s & `90s. Popoff brings to the project new interviews with the key members throughout the decades, along with a substantial amount of new research to offer what is now the only book to focus on the eighties and nineties era of the band that saw huge turbulence amongst the ranks. Utilising his celebrated one album per chapter method, Popoff analyses the complete catalogue from the period of the band where initially Paul Chapman takes over from the departed Michael Schenker for the albums. No Place To Run, The Wild, the Willing and the Innocent, Mechanix and Making Contact. The journey takes us through the albums following the departure of Chapman and bassist Pete Way and concludes with 1995's Walk On Water that sees the classic line-up reunited with Schenker back on guitar before he sensationally walked out on the band after just four shows of the supporting tour. In and around Popoff's famed meticulous analysis of the catalogue, look for lots of tour talk, revealing nightmares surrounding the band's business, and warnings about how the twin demons of drugs and alcohol can slow a band's progress on the way to the top.

  • Megadeth : So far, so good…so megadeth! (martin popoff)

    The Megadeth story in detail featuring fresh interviews, track-by-track analysis, talk of all the tours, the hirings, the firings, the chemicals, but mostly the metal. Having been formed in 1984 by Dave Mustaine following his acrimonius departure from Metallica it’s an epic tale and even the most dedicated Mega-fan will undoubtedly learn new things from the author’s detailed appraisal. Mustaine vowed revenge for his dismissal from Metallica by forming a band that would be faster and heavier. Megadeth’s run of thrash classics from the mid ‘80s and up through the ‘90s continue to be celebrated in the metal community long after Dave Mustaine’s band mates have been discarded to the sands of time—save one, Dave “Jr.” Ellefson. Along the way, there’s Mustaine’s pathology with his ex-friends in Metallica but also a helluva lot of killer metal, as the band works its way up through Peace Sells and So Far, through to the pair of superlative American metal classics, namely Rust In Peace and Countdown To Extinction. Come celebrate Mustaine’s vision, a head-crunching canon of classic work you all know and love.

  • Blue Öyster Cult : Agents of fortune (martin popoff)

    Forty years in the business... six gold & platinum U.S. albums... classic songs like (Don't Fear) The Reaper, Godzilla, Burnin' For You, Astronomy and E.T.I. Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser, Eric Bloom, Allen Lanier, Albert Bouchard & Joe Bouchard comprised one of the great stadium acts of the '70s & '80s. BOC were heavy enough to duke it out with Kiss, Rush, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent & Black Sabbath, yet smart, funny, ironic & jaded enough to please the tough New York critics. Agents of Fortune examines the complicated early days of the band, graphically demonstrating the showbiz sweat that goes into making a successful act. The book is centred around the peerless intellectual quality of the songs - made entertaining by the band's psychotropic & ghoulish humour; its interest in all manner of conspiracy theories, cults, monsters, vampires, UFOs, foul play, arcane spiritualism, alchemy, love lost & love buried, science fiction & friction. Popoff draws on his personal interviews with Roeser, Bloom, Albert & Joe Bouchard, along with drummer Bobby Rondinelli, legendary band producer Murray Krugman & BOC expert Bolle Gregmar. For insight into the band's fantastic lyrical world, Popoff went right to the source, the writers of the BOC classics highlighting their creativity through the author's countless interviews with Sandy Pearlman (manager during the golden years), Richard Meltzer, John Shirley, cover artists Greg Scott and Ioannis, as well as the late Helen Wheels and David Roter. An essential read for Blue Öyster Cult devotees.

Wind of Change draws on the authors interviews with all of the principals and beyond, including Klaus Meine, Uli Jon Roth, Herman Rarebell, Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs, along with the likes of legendary manager David Krebs, Ralph Rieckermann and Francis Buchholz.

    Thin Lizzy : From Dublin to jailbreak, Thin Lizzy 1969-1976 (Martin Popoff)

    Dublin's Thin Lizzy have become one of the most revered cult acts of all time. Studious and discerning fans of hard rock the world over revelling in the storytelling acumen of the legendary Phil Lynott and the craft and class of his band. Through numerous new interviews with most of the principles involved and a mountain of painstaking research, From Dublin To Jailbreak: Thin Lizzy 69 - 76 examines the band's career up to 1976 culminating in the superlative and sparkling Jailbreak, home of such hits as 'Cowboy Song', 'Emerald', 'Jailbreak' and 'The Boys Are Back In Town' and Johnny The Fox that included the hit single 'Don't Believe A Word'. Along the way, alcohol and drugs wreaked havoc between band members, producers and managers, but despite line-up changes and a mostly grinding, rock scrabble existence, Ireland's favourite sons persevered, finally achieving the smash hit record they'd deserved for so long. Popoff's celebrated record-by-record methodology highlights a new appreciation of the deep album tracks hiding within this singular band's often forgotten early years. The book also reveals Phil Lynott in all his dastardly guises, making From Dublin To Jailbreak: Thin Lizzy 69 - 76, an essential read for the devoted fans.

  • Deep Purple : The road of golden dust, the deep purple story 1968-76 (jerry bloom)

    A comprehensive story of Deep Purple's golden years 1968-76, which saw the band come from nowhere to have a top 4 US hit with it’s debut single. Within two years the band was in the throes of potential dissolvement when the record company went into liquidation. Fortunately, focussing on their homeland in Britain they re-launched their career with the ground breaking In Rock LP in 1970 - the platform that ensured by 1973 Deep Purple was the biggest selling album artists in America. Band break-ups and in-fighting continually rocked the boat before finally calling it a day in 1976 after a brief UK tour. The Road Of Golden Dust documents the ups and downs, drawing on the author’s interviews with various band and road crew members including founding members Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord and Nick Simper, as well as interviews with Roger Glover, Glenn Hughes, roadie Ian Hansford, tour manager Colin Hart plus co-operation from the management company Deep Purple (Overseas) Ltd, that all help to unveil some new stories that help to explain the whys and wherefores that shaped one of Britain’s greatest and most influential rock bands of all time.

  • John, Elton : From tin pan alley to the yellow brick road (keith hayward)

    From Tin Pan Alley To The Yellow Brick Road is author Keith Hayward's sequel to the critically acclaimed Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John. It continues Elton John’s story from the start of his solo career and his breakthrough with "Your Song" to the end of the seventies. A Time Where Elton achieved unparalleled success, but at a price. Personal relationships and physical exhaustion of being one of the most in demand performers in the world are documents alongside the sometimes ruthless side of the music world. With contributions from many people who played a big part in Elton's success, including his manager John Reid, John Higgins, (Rocket Records archivist), David Larkham(cover designer), Stuart Epps, Steve James, Kenny Passarelli, Roger Pope (whom the author managed) and Kiki Dee. This is a journey through the music business - from the mid sixties through to the end of seventies - as seen through Elton's career. The seventies saw the power pendulum of the music business change from the publishing companies to the artists and the writers who owned their own songs. Tin Pan Alley songwriters were replaced by singer songwriters such as Elton, writing for themselves. It was a time where radio DJ’s were as big, if not bigger, than the singers and bands were whose records they were playing. Music producers were as important as the songwriters and musicians who created the music.The small family publisher who frequented the small street in London was gradually replaced by the independent record label that did everything from publishing to selling records. Then towards the end of the seventies all were swallowed up by the large corporate companies who saw music as a commodity to be traded on the stock exchange. Elton John was just one of the artists that crossed the divide from the sixties to the seventies alongside David Bowie, Marc Bolan, Sandy Denny, and John Martyn to name a few - who all followed the lead of Lennon and McCartney, and Jagger and Richards. It was, arguably one of the most exciting times in the history of the music business, and of course in Elton John’s career as well. Where change was a way of life. Complete with a comprehensive gig list that has been painstakingly researched to include gigs as far back as 1966, From Tin Pan Alley To The Yellow Brick Road is a thought provoking and engaging read that palces Elton John’s success within context of the multi-faceted sand sometimes complex world of the music business.
