I saw this at Half Price Books for $9.99 and knew I'd be taking it home with me. Details about the recording of every Motorhead album from the self titled debut to Motorizer? Sign me up.

As a Motorhead fan, musician, sometime recording engineer and all around music geek, I liked this book.

nie do końca tego się spodziewałem. myślałem, że bardziej się skupią na inspiracjach i tekstach a nie rodzajach mikrofonów użytych podczas sesji, ale i tak spoko.
