[QUOTE=JohnH;50624]I was at Barnes and Noble last night and spontaneously bought Mick Wall's When Giants Walked the Earth Zep book. It looks really really good. Already have learned some cool things just thumbing through it./QUOTE]

John, IMHO....it's one of the better books on Zep......the only part that. to me, bogged down the book was the chapter about Aleister Crowley......BORING!!!

Don't know if many Metallica fans on here but my friend Richard Galbraith has a photo he took of Cliff Burton in the book Metallica: The Early Years and the Rise of Metal by Neil Daniels

In addition to the book from Colin Hart: This is an interview from 2008 with Rob Fodder, who used to be PA to Ritchie Blackmore (he had quite a few of them... )

Quote:
Of the various members who have been through the Deep Purple who have you kept in contact with still?

I speak with Glenn Hughes and Joe Lynn Turner quite often and have been in contact with Jon Lord by e-mail.

It's a great pic, you can be very proud that it was chosen for the German edition! I wish they would have picked one of mine...

A new biography and photo book about Randy Rhoads, who so tragically died when touring with Ozzy, has been published:

I'm about to finish Ozzy's "I am Ozzy". BRILLIANT!!! 10/10

Just finished Tony Iommi's book.

Currently half way through Bill Bruford's autobiography. Which is also on Jawbone, as is Glenn's.

During my holiday I read Sammy Hagar's Red Rocker.

It was a fun read.
What a musician, what a businessman.

Nowadays he's just criticizing Van Halen. Saying Chickenfoot is a much better band blablabla.
He doesn't need that.
In his book a large part is about Van Halen. He's criticizing them a lot, but on the other hand he still praises them for their musical abilities.

Currently reading Eccentric Man: A Biography & Discography of Tony (TS) McPhee, by Paul Freestone.

Tony McPhee is a blues/rock guitarist from England and is most notable for founding the band, Groundhogs. Also, the Groundhogs would be the backing band for John Lee Hooker and other American blues artists when touring England.

Andy Fraser has also published his autobiography

"ALL RIGHT NOW: LIFE, DEATH AND LIFE AGAIN"

so far only available as Kindle edition

www.amazon.com/ALL-RIGHT-NOW-DEATH-ebook

Andy Fraser - Autobiography "All Right Now... Life, Death and Life Again" - YouTube

Quote from a recent interview with Andy:

Quote:
You've just played again at Wembley Arena on September 29th for the Jim Marshall 50 Years Of Loud tribute. You got to perform with Glenn Hughes on the Free classic 'Mr Big'. How was that for you?

"I love Glenn Hughes. He is a wonderful guy, fully recovered from his cocaine binging days, and only interested in giving back. A very generous soul, and one of the world's best singers.

"I had a blast, and totally love working with Glenn, and we have talked about more joint ventures."

Today I received my Bernie book. Loads of pics from his career in it, some with Mel Galley.

This makes a nice addition to my Purple family book collection

I hope its ok to bump an old thread a little.. some great book suggestions here.

I'd like to recommend "I'll sleep when I'm dead" Which is a biography of Warren Zevon written by his former wife. A hell of a read and features a great chilli recipe too so there’s an incentive if ever there was one!
