More About the Author
Joel McIver (born 1971) is a British author. The best-known of his 25 books to date is the bestselling Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica, first published in 2004 and appearing in nine languages since then. McIver's other works include biographies of Black Sabbath, Slayer, Ice Cube and Queens Of The Stone Age. His writing also appears in newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock and Rolling Stone, and he is a regular guest on music-related BBC and commercial radio.
In the introduction to Neil Daniels' 2009 book All Pens Blazing, veteran writer Martin Popoff described McIver as "probably the top [rock] scribe in the world". In a book review in April 2012, Classic Rock magazine labelled McIver "by some distance Britain's most prolific hard rock/metal author".
As well as writing his own books, McIver also co-writes the autobiographies of rock musicians. The first of these was the memoir of sometime Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes, published in May 2011. McIver is also the co-writer of books by Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy) and Megadeth bass player David Ellefson, both of which were published in late 2013.
