    Loved the book. It was a great journey from the beginning of “hair metal” in the 1980s through the dark days of the 1990s to its return in the 2000s and continued existence up to 2019. The author delivering a very readable, easily digested and quite informative overview of the entire genre and while he spends most of his time focused on the big name artists (which is understandable) and the most important releases ( in his opinion) of each year, less well known artists get their time in the spot Loved the book.

The author delivering a very readable, easily digested and quite informative overview of the entire genre and while he spends most of his time focused on the big name artists (which is understandable) and the most important releases ( in his opinion) of each year, less well known artists get their time in the spotlight or at least a mention. For me personally (as an unapologetic Gen Xer, 80s teenager and hair metal fan)this book was not only a great trip down memory lane but also a journey of discovery, as I’ve now found old and new hair metal bands I was unfamiliar with and can now check out on my favorite streaming service or YouTube. Definitely recommend this one for fans of the music genre.

    This dude speaks my language. I don’t understand the fascination with Enuff Z’Nuff, but holy crap, he reminded me of some amazing bands and turned me on to some new stuff I didn’t know existed. I had to make a list of albums to listen to. Check this out. It’s a great - though not complete - history of arena rock/hair metal.

    Okay it was fun to relive some of the music, and the coverage of each 'hair metal" band's path from the early 80s until now was informative. I would like to know more about the author, what makes him an expert on the genre. Early in the book he says he's interviewed several of these musicians and is not just some extreme glam fan, but I never got a feel for what his credentials are. (At first Google all that comes up is this book). He expresses some strong opinions about albums, recording styles Okay it was fun to relive some of the music, and the coverage of each 'hair metal" band's path from the early 80s until now was informative.

(At first Google all that comes up is this book). He expresses some strong opinions about albums, recording styles, guitar chops...all this makes me more curious as to his background. I was distracted by some blatant errors (not a Poison myself, but come on, you can't write a hair metal book and misspell Rikki Rockett). It's pretty apparent that the author has his favorite bands from the era and is quite loyal to them. I would recommend this to my rocker friends for the trip down musical memory lane, but to take it with a grain of salt.
