Yeah Whithams is a great read as is Steve Hislops.

When you say Motley Crue's do you mean the one called The Dirt? If so that's probably the best bio I've ever read.

I loved "Worms to Catch", in fact I like all his books, even the non bike ones are entertaining. If you get a chance watch his programes on youtube.

Yeah, thatís the one, I particularly liked the bit where Sharon kept them separated from ozzy for their own safety.

Iíve watched loads of his programmes, Guy is great in front of the camera. Iíd even say heís raised the profile of motorcycling in general with his personality.

I like the humour in Michaels book as well, when he describes his chief sponsor Gary Ryan "if he was a dog you wouldn't know whether to tickle his tummy or have him put down"

Great read.
It's not new, it came out eight years ago. The original first edition copies through Haynes, (which I have), were fetching silly money on ebay and Amazon until reprint.
