Appetite for Destruction

‘APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION has the best of Wall’s Kerrang! features, each bolstered by new, insightful post-scripts. You won’t read a funnier rock book****’ MOJO

‘Wall is firing on all cylinders’ CLASSIC ROCK

‘This hilarious tome is a collection of his finest moments… Wall had a great knack from getting under the skin of interviewees’ BIG ISSUE

Whether it’s hanging around with Marillion’s Fish in Berlin, seeing Whitesnake fail to ignite 1985’s Rock in Rio, talking through old times with Jimmy Page in his Berkshire pile or following Ozzy Osbourne to Moscow, there isn’t a rock luminary that Wall hasn’t cross-examined or kept the flame burning with at some point over the last thirty years.

Here, amongst several pieces, he catches Lars Ullrich just on the cusp of world domination; has dinner with Ritchie Blackmore on the eve of a Deep Purple comeback; and is up all night in LA with W. Axl Rose.

APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION gathers together Wall’s journalism for Kerrang!, for whom he was the star writer in their eighties heyday. It also features brand-new introductions to all the pieces, written with maybe less hair but also the benefit of twenty years’ hindsight.

Reviews

Appetite for Destruction has the best of Wall's Kerrang! features, each bolstered by new, insightful post-scripts. You won't read a funnier rock book in 2010.****
MOJO
Wall was the lead feature writer for Kerrang! magazine in the 1980s, and this hilarious tome is a collection of his finest moments... Wall had a great knack from getting under the skin of interviewees.
BIG ISSUE
An excellent primer to the good and bad of the job... he never falls into the trap of being too impressed with his own novelty, making this a very good read.
ROCK SOUND
Mick Wall was one of the mag's [Kerrang!] better-known writers and this book contains 31 of his bigger, funnier or generally more significant stories... what's notable is Wall's approach of reverence where it had been earned and contempt where it was deserved
RECORD COLLECTOR
Wall is firing on all cylinders
CLASSIC ROCK
