Heavy Duty: Days and Nights in Judas Priest is a decent read with a lovely overview of the early history of a legendary heavy metal band.
This is absolutely more than a book about a rock band. It’s a tale of discovery and about carving one’s own way while not exactly knowing what you’re carving into.

If you’re looking for a somewhat definitive explanation (like this writer was) of Nergal’s intellectual philosophy that acts as the driving force of Behemoth, you’re not going to find it in Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors.

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has become a best-selling author, and for anyone who doesn’t know about his backstory, Perry, just like his band mates, lived—or survived—a life of rock and roll excess. The well-publicized revival of Aerosmith in the mid-’80s painted a picture of a band that rose from the ashes. Perry’s book, ‘Rocks: My Life in and out of Aerosmith,’ entered at #8 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. While it’s likely that Perry’s popularity as a rock star has had an impact on book sales, his intriguing memoir is a must-read for anyone, but particularly those fans who have followed the band for decades.
Author Mick Wall takes on the task of documenting the rise of what is arguably the biggest heavy metal band of all time, Metallica. As a fan of the band from the very beginning back in the early 1980’s, I was more than ecstatic to dig into this incredibly detailed and lengthy biography. As a personal friend of the band Wall has access to and incredible insight into the musicians and has done a wonderful job of compiling his first hand observations and interviews to construct an unbelievable portrait of the machine that is Metallica.
