The Ultimate Unauthorized History Of The Beast
Clearly not one to rest on his laurels, Neil Daniels is set to release his second book in as many months as Iron Maiden – The Ultimate Unauthorized History Of The Beast hits the shelves this month.
At a hefty 224 pages, the book includes hundreds of rare photographs of the band and their legendary memorabilia. Iron Maiden have always taken their merchandising very seriously and have produced an array of stunning collectables over the years and this book will bring together images of many of these items!
The book will be available from Amazon and you can pre-order it HERE.
Formed in east London in 1975, Iron Maiden went on to become one of the most successful rock acts in history. With more than 85 million album sales to their credit, the legendary metal band remains hugely popular worldwide: Their 2010 album, The Final Frontier, debuted at #1 in 30 countries and received unanimous critical praise.
In this, the first complete illustrated treatment of Iron Maiden, a roster of respected heavy metal journalists including Ian Christe, Martin Popoff, Mick Wall, Daniel Bukszpan, and more relate the band’s history, analyse their recordings, and provide a complete discography.
The stories behind the band’s formation, recordings, and tours, are complemented with more than 400 images, including live performance and candid off-stage photographs, as well as memorabilia, gig posters, T-shirts, backstage passes, buttons, and tickets. And with Derek Riggs (the man behind Iron Maiden’s iconic mascot, Eddie) having created the book’s exclusive cover art, this really is a must for any serious Iron Maiden collector.
Few bands have as widespread global appeal as Iron Maiden. Here is the book that gives that history its just treatment.
