Nothin But A Good Time by Justin Quirk @justindquirk @Unbound_Digital @RandomTTours #Giveaway #Competition #Win #NothinButAGoodTime

From 1983 until 1991, Glam Metal was the sound of American culture. Big hair, massive amplifiers, drugs, alcohol, piles of money and life-threatening pyrotechnics. This was the world stalked by Bon Jovi, Kiss, W.A.S.P., Skid Row, Dokken, Motley Crue, Cinderella, Ratt and many more. Armed with hairspray, spandex and strangely shaped guitars, they marked the last great era of supersize bands. Where did Glam Metal come from? How did it spread? What killed it off? And why does nobody admit to having been a Glam Metaller anymore?

Nothin But A Good Time : The Spectacular Rise & Fall of Glam Metal by Justin Quirk was published on 3 September by Unbound Digital.

As part of this #RandomThingsTours Blog Tour today I am delighted to have one copy to give away to the winner of this competition. Entry is simple, just fill out the competition widget at the end of the post.


One copy of Nothin But A Good Time by Justin Quirk

Justin Quirk is an award-winning writer, editor and broadcaster from London. 
He first wrote for The Guardian’s music pages when he was 19, and began contributing to Kerrang! shortly afterwards as a reviewer. 
Since then he has written for everyone from Arena and Esquire to the Times, Sunday Times and The Independent about art, music and culture, regularly appears on the BBC World Service and Soho Radio, and DJs at places like Spiritland and Merchant’s Tavern in London. 
As a teenage metaller he spent an inordinate amount of time hanging around Kensington Market (because his friend Chris has met Slash outside there), covered his schoolbooks in posters ripped out of metal magazines, saw Guns n’ Roses twice, got stranded at a curfew-busting Skid Row show, made his older sister (a goth) take him to Donington Monsters of Rock, failed to get into an AC/DC video as an extra, played Metallica’s ‘One’ for his music GCSE exam, saw everyone from Thunder to Mötley Crüe, and got regularly chased through suburban shopping precincts by skinheads. 
This is his first book.
