'Packed with war stories from a golden age of rock, and insights into the stars that made that music' CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE

'On reading Getcha Rocks Off you realise just how drastically things have changed in the rock industry but books like this perfectly evoke what they were like. Good times...' RECORD COLLECTOR

Hanging out with rock stars, trying to steal their chicks, or throwing up over their guitars after launching into the hospitality a little too enthusiastically, Mick Wall spent much of the 1980s sprawled in limos and five-star hotels with the biggest rock bands in the world, including Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Moetley Crue, Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Van Halen, Motoerhead and more.

He was Kerrang! magazine's star writer and the presenter of Monsters of Rock, his own weekly show on Sky TV, and the decade passed in a blur of hard drugs, hot women, and some of the heaviest people your mother definitely would not like.

Depicting a world where vague concepts like 'the future' are disdained in favour of nights that last a week and weeks that last forever, Getcha Rocks Off is a rock apocalypse Cider With Roadies, and a more frank and disturbing Apathy for the Devil. It is the kind of book you need to put on your leather jacket to read, open that bottle of Jack and reach for the Charlie. And let the good times roll...

MEDIA REVIEWS
On reading Getcha Rocks Off you realise just how drastically things have changed in the rock industry - in only three decades... Wall flung himself into this miasma of well-funded debauchery like a rat up a drainpipe, and you damn well would have done too in his position. Those days are long gone, unfortunately for the rest of us, but books like this perfectly evoke what they were like. Good times... * RECORD COLLECTOR *
Getcha Rocks Off is packed with war stories from a golden age of rock, and insights into the stars that made that music. * CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE *
Not only a brilliant and entertaining book, but also a captivating and in some strange way even inspiring read.... It is just totally different to the usual run-of-the-mill rock biographies that are constantly released. This is the real fucking deal...This book will take you to the edge and have you stare into the abyss, and the best/worst part is that you will probably love it and beg for more once you are done reading this captivating and fascinating memoir.. if you are looking for an apocalyptic, mind-blowing, and entertaining biography then "Getcha Rocks Off" is the way to go. Highly recommended. * eternalterror.com *
For anyone who just loves rock music, loves rock music writing, crazy stories from the road, or (preferably) all three like I do, Getcha Rocks Off will help you do just that...metaphorically speaking, of course! * rnrchemist.blogspot.com *
