A biography of the formation and career of the original band with a focus on the business side. This is the only bio I've ever read that consisted almost entirely of interview quotes, which make up about 90% of the book with the author simply putting in connecting sentences. Still, this book has a lot of value to fans as there are, finally, explanations for the departures of both Fast Eddie and Phil Taylor, and the book is recent enough that the deaths of Lemmy and Phil are covered. I wish I could give it a higher rating, but there's so little writing on the author's part and the few photos included are black and white crowd photos. ( )

Book received from NetGalley.

I have been a fan of Motorhead since I first heard them play Ace of Spades on the British TV show "The Young Ones" back in the 80's. While I liked their music I didn't really know much about the band or its members. This was a really good history of the group, and it's especially timely since we lost Lemmy last year. This is a definite must-read for fans of the group. ( )
