“It’s a book about my times in both IRON MAIDEN & PRAYING MANTIS. It covers all of the time spent in ‘MAIDEN, all in chonological order, in great detail, along with early snapshots of the band, which have never been seen. It also covers all my ‘MANTIS gigs, and both tours (METAL FOR MUTHAS & MAIDENS first headline tour, on which we supported them ),and details all the ridicoulous situations that we go into on the road!) It contains about 12 early Maiden pix, plus various shots of ‘Mantis. There are many references to other bands and members from around the time, and I’m sure it will be a very interesting and amusing read !!!”
