Michael Hann "Denim And Leather: The Rise And Fall Of The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal"

Between 1978 and 1983, Great Britain spawned a DIY uprising of over 500 heavy-metal bands. Many soon became the household names of the 1980's metal invasion... many others did not. For the first time, author Michael Hann captures the whole nose-to-tail story of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal in all its power and glory, exploring the bands, clubs, radio, magazines, festivals, and the majesty and misfires of the NWOBHM in over 100 interviews with members of Venom, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Diamond Head, Angel Witch, Samson, UFO, Tygers of Pan Tang, Vardis, Judas Priest, Saxon, Whitesnake, Girlschool, Witchfynde, Demon, Thin Lizzy, Rainbow, Gillan, Led Zeppelin, and more.
