Editorial Reviews

About the Author

MIKE McPADDEN is the author of Heavy Metal Movies: The 666 Most Headbanging Films of All Time, the head writer at MrSkin.com, and the editor of multiple volumes of Mr. Skin's Skincyclopedia. A punk in the '80s, he came to Metallica mid-decade upon seeing a Mohawk-headed, safety-pinned lovely in a RIDE THE LIGHTNING T-shirt. When he drank, he drank Jagermeister, because Lars Ulrich told him to. It never helped his guitar playing.

Format: Paperback
I learned a lot about Exodus, I heard speak of Seger I had never heard before, I learned that the song 'Carrie-Anne' by the Hollies was written about Marianne Faithful. How does one travel from Metallica to the Hollies, via Motorhead and Anvil, with bands like Scorpions and horror films thrown in, in between? Let the great McP take you on this journey.

Read this book! Love 'em or hate 'em Metallica is in it for the long haul.

This book takes a twisty walk through the bands (and later movies and books) who have influenced and been influenced by Metallica. And you know it takes a true fan who has clearly done extensive research to untangle a web of connections from the obvious to the obscure and assign them all a splendiferous adjective. Just a taste of the mind blowing descriptions: Rammstein is described as "Half a dozen firebreathing sadomasochistic Berliners, spray coated in rubber, leather, and all infectious fluid agents both known and unknown...". That's freakin' awesome, who wouldn't want to read more of that. Or imagine the world where James Hetfield goes hunting with Ted Nugent. Who knew that?

Still it stays pretty honest and open. Even as a fan of the band no one wants to read a book that only sings praises, and the author isn't afraid to deliver a swift kick to the balls whether it's over the napster debacle or Lars Ulrich's penchant for wearing fancy loafers. Get it, you're in good company. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
If You Like Metallica... is an excursion into the band's inspirations, influences and contemporaries in the realms of stoner metal, industrial, thrash and NWOBHM led by a guy whose knowledge of the myriad subgenres of metal is matched by his dark sense of humor. If you are a metal fan, you will appreciate the quips about bands like the apparently-oblivious-to-their-own-homoerotic-subtext Sodom. If you are a novice, then you will come out of this book armed with some impressive references to throw around.
