Nöthin' but a good time : the uncensored history of the '80s hard rock explosion

Beaujour, Tom, (interviewer.). Bienstock, Richard, (interviewer.).


Summary: 1980s hard rock was a hedonistic and often intensely creative wellspring of escapism that perfectly encapsulated-- and maybe even helped to define-- a spectacularly over-the-top decade. From the do-or-die early days of self-financed recordings and D.I.Y. concert productions that were as flashy as they were foolhardy, to the multi-platinum, MTV-powered glory years of stadium-shaking anthems and chart-topping power ballads, to the ultimate crash when grunge bands like Nirvana forever altered the entire climate of the business, Beaujour and Bienstock capture the energy and excess of the hair metal years in the words of the musicians, managers, producers, engineers, label executives, publicists, stylists, costume designers, photographers, journalists, magazine publishers, video directors, club bookers, roadies, groupies, and hangers-on who lived it. -- adapted from publisher
