Review: Rock Stars by David Grant



About Rock Stars:

Rock Stars is a look back and forward with the glam metal singers from the eighties. Accompanied by illustrations of each singer, Rock Stars takes a tongue and cheek look at both the careers and music created during this time.
Twenty-eight mini-profiles detailing strengths, weaknesses, and X factors ranging from Kip Winger’s hair, David Lee Roth’s use of the microphone, to Bret Michaels reality series comeback. Think Behind The Music on cocaine.





My Thoughts:

I Wanna Rock!....after reading this book!

It's a definite walk down memory lane for the early MTV; rock concert generation.


Although I really enjoyed the history, trivia, and flashbacks given to me, I would recommend this one for the guy who has everything!

This would make a great gift: Who doesn't want to recapture their youth or for the music lovers to read up on legendary artists and their work.

I want to blow out my hair, put on spandex (which I can say in all honesty is a BAD idea...), slap on too much makeup, and go listen to some Poison!

Rock On!
