Abstract:

"Heavy-metal survivors Metallica are one of the most important bands on the planet. Formed in 1981, James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, and Lars Ulrich have sustained their reign over the hearts and minds of millions of devoted fans for almost three decades. Rock journalist Paul Stenning reveals the unique blend of fearless reinvention, integrity, and resilience that have ensured Metallica's unrivalled status as multi-platinum-selling metal royalty with a place in the Rock & Role Hall Of Fame." "The personal tragedy, petty rivalries and all-consuming addictions that have threatened to eclipse the band's achievement at every step are no secret - from the tragic loss of bassist Cliff Burton in 1986 to the remaining members' prolonged mistreatment of new recruit Jason Newsted, James Hetfield's life-threatening alcoholism and Lars Ulrich's relentless pursuit of success at any price." "All that Matters uncovers every last detail of Metallica's chequered past, chronicling the highs and lows that took the group from stadium to courtroom to rehab, whilst attempting to unravel some of the most profound contradictions of all. Featuring unseen interviews from forgotten friends and ex-lovers, this is the complete no-holds-barred guide to the band."--BOOK JACKET.
