Welcome To My Nightmare
by Dave Thompson
I would of love to give this book a higher rating unfortunately there were many
errors w/ dates, titles, and credits. If you are a big Alice follower like myself it is a bit
annoying the errors that occur. Such as saying "You And Me" from Goes To Hell LP
from the Lace and Whisky LP.
Michael Bruce wrote "When Hell Comes To Town" and Dennis Dunaway wrote
"Runaway Train" not the other way around. Saying Rob Halford was on "Hey Stoopid" lp
instead of Ozzy Osbourne to name a few.
I could of done without chapter one going back to Alice's ancestors. That could of been
done in less pages. The early times w/ the original
band writer Dave Thompson quoted
quite a bit from Glen Buxton.
This is the first time I read a number of quotes from Glen
assuming it was Glen that Dave
received these statements.
Dave talks about Billion Dollar Babies "Battle Axe" album and possible tour before the bottom
It's also good to have an outsider's view so the story isn't one sided especially the
break up of the band. I read Alice's and Michael Bruce versions from their books. Also Dennis
and Neal versions from past interviews. But Dave gathers all that info and places it before you.
Going by each album and giving some behind the scenes stories I enjoyed. This book leads up
to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" release.Dave Thompson

someone to check the dates
and titles this would of been a top notch book and it makes me wonder what's real and what
