Metallica The Ultimate Survivors
"The whole thing surprised me," Wall told AOL Noisecreep. "It was the same with my last book on Led Zeppelin [2010's When Giants Walked the Earth]. I went into writing Enter Night thinking I already knew a great deal about Metallica. Two years of writing and research and just sitting there really thinking about things made me realize I knew nothing."
Despite his pull-no-punches approach, Wall said he has a new appreciation for the band. "The whole thing was a huge journey for me. I guess the overriding impression I was left with was of a band of ultimate survivors, real rock 'n' roll frontiersmen who did what it took to make it and stay there, come what may. Not always prettyfar from it sometimesbut what guts, what glory. It's the kind of story that will never happen again in rock." more on this story
