...the book's research was super, getting the balance between fact and fiction spot on destroying a lot of the myths surrounding the band and also giving great insight into the Bill Ward debacle.
Wall delivers the book he was born to write.
The band's uppers and downers are recounted here with amusing and sobering appraisal, making this an entertaining read for long-standing fans and newcomers alike.
..the real advantage that Wall enjoys over all the other Sabbath biographers is that he worked for the musicians as a PR and knew them all personally... as a result (he) is able to portray the Sabbath members as they really are. ...It's an epic tale, told the way it should be.
Wall has a marvellous turn of phrase... required reading for all fans, regardless of their preferred era.
