All of the personal stories seemed to be centered around something wonderful that happened to Eddie rather than providing real insight into the band, its music, or its members.

True, there was some history and some interesting stories but most of it boiled down to "gee, it was really cool for them to suprise me on my birthday. The other part of me found it a bit annoying that hearing about how wonderful Mr. Trunk's life was. I say all this with the understanding that I love to listen to Eddie Trunk on the radio and watch his VH1 show. In the end, I enjoyed the book well enough - simply because of how much I love the music upon which it is based. Dec 23, Steve rated it liked it Shelves: biographies.
When it comes to knowing the back story of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal artists, there is no one who matches Eddie Trunk. Rob Halford of Judas Priest describes Eddie as a living, breathing backstage pass, and that is an apt description. The man is just plain immersed in the genres And for that, I am grateful.

The book itself is slick and glossy, almost "over-produced" which should be ironic to Mr. Trunk and the only distraction is his repetitive need to remind us of his music industry background in nearly every entry while moaning about a lack of print space. However, I share a great deal of similar interests with the author and so I found this book informative, highly entertaining and worth owning.
So much so, that I have purchased his second effort. Rock on, Eddie. Oct 05, Renato rated it really liked it Shelves: music , non-fiction. This is a very fun book to read. Also, you need to read it without prejudice: maybe, many of your favorite bands won't be here, but I believe you won't dispute the ones that he included in his book as being the ones that really shaped Metal and Hard Rock. I would disagree with a few Poison? Skid Row? They didn This is a very fun book to read.
They didn't influence anyone. If you wanna talk about Hair Metal, Bon Jovi is already there. Skinny poser guys? Aerosmith is in there , but this is Eddie's view and, as you all know, he IS the expert and probably the only one with undisputed credibility with these bands. Also nice to read his stories on how he met almost all of these guys, and how much respect he has for them. His stories about Dio are impressive, as well as for others.
Again, a very nice book for those who love the music. Sep 11, Fred Klein rated it really liked it. I'm still browsing Trunk's books, and I am admittedly not going to read every word. I am not interested in all of the bands and performers. Trunk provides information, stories, and his insight about the top players in hard rock and heavy metal.

Excellent, informative book from a man who clearly loves his subject. One thing I appreciated is how Trunk made me realize how even bands that I hate, like Motorhead, contributed something important to hard rock and heavy metal. I enjoyed reading about Trunk's personal stories with these bands, as well as the recommended playlist to get to know the work of each band he features. I eagerly await the sequel!
There are lots of Excellent, informative book from a man who clearly loves his subject. There are lots of ticket stubs, colored side-bars, and old photos that I couldn't view clearly on my Nook Simple Touch.

Apr 25, D. Anderson rated it liked it. I enjoyed it, but I do kind of wish Mr. Trunk would try to expand his horizons a bit. There have been a lot of great and influential bands since the 80s, but Trunk seems to be stuck in decades-past. The newest band included here is Pantera. May 12, Harkonen rated it liked it.
Nice photography and written well but a bit of a fluff piece if you ask me. Not much new material for people familiar with the subject. At times the author seems hesitant to write harshly about his subjects. Truck did admit to not liking portions of an artists discography but I could tell he was holding back.
I'm sure he's worried about severing ties to difficult to reach artists. All in all a good book for beginners new to the scene but a light read for us old timers. Dec 09, Jeremiah Sain rated it it was amazing Shelves: music. Eddie's style is a perfect way to be introduced to some new bands or just learn more about some bands you already knew. Reading this book, you can hear Eddie talking, almost like you're just sitting in your living room flipping through albums. The personal stories add a great touch and a level of intimacy that most books don't give.

I may have been too hyped for it but found that I already knew most of what was included in these segments. I would still recommend the book but wavered on whether 3 or 4 stars was accurate but opted for the later because it finished off much better. I will still read the second and hope for the third soon after. Dec 06, Cortney Davis rated it really liked it.

And how the first album was recorded in three weeks but their second took six months, done while the band was on a world tour. They carried the masters of the recording session in a steamer trunk wherever they went. Out of these chaotic sessions came the "Whole Lotta Love," which was finished in New York with Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer helping create the psychedelic middle part, as well as "The Lemon Song," which was cut live in the studio.
Page worked feverishly with Kramer to mix the LP on a primitive channel Altec board in a two-day span. Fans will also learn the genesis of their lyrics, the inspiration for their album covers, the instruments used, and the contributions of engineers such as Andy Johns, who helped create the iconic drum sound on "When the Levee Breaks" by recording Bonham at the bottom of a stairwell.
