There really isn't much to read in this book. There's a page or two of anecdotes and fond memories from each member of the band and a couple of others as they recall what their lives were like when some of these photos were taken. The photos themselves are wonderful; charting the band's beginnings as fresh-faced curly-haired teenagers, to the mega-stardom that they reached in the 80s and 90s. The pages are glossy and any serious fan will keep it well out of the reach of sticky-fingered children. ...more

Much as i love this band was really looking forward to it, this book is somewhat of a disappointment. It has loads of awesome pictures but, i would have liked to have read more about the band itself other than reading "I have enjoyed playing with the band over the years" from each member. So after a while it gets a little dull, especially as none that i can remember were outrageously funny. Still, i really enjoyed it!

It would have been nice to see a bit more from each band member, but that said, it is a photography book.
Serious fans will keep anyone with grubby mitts away from the pages, and keep it as a lovely coffee table book.

Well, talk about an easy look, I mean read. I expected it to have few words since "visual" is in the title. It was fun looking at the pictures. I used to have a few of them hanging on my walls.
