Default Before And After

I'm very late to reading Mick Wall's Foo Fighters book, and have spotted a potential mistake that might be old news to most of you.

There's a reference (on p171 of my copy) to "...the band's 2011 Before and After documentary."

I assume that should be Back And Forth. Is that just a daft mistake it was it originally titled Before And After?

From what I understand that whole book is a mistake.

Though to answer your question, I would say it’s just a mistake caused by the author not really caring about his subject.

Nail/Head. It really is a piece of shit - I was sent an advance and then on publication asked if Id like to give copies away. I never replied.

That book is a skidmark. He tried to write a book about the band but hates them as an entity so much and loves Dave that he just jerked him off for the whole thing while degrading the rest of them. One for the bin.

OK, thanks. Yeah, have come to the same conclusion about the tone of the book, but I've been filtering all that out. Nearly finished now so will persevere.

Next on the list: This Is A Call by Paul Brannigan (from which Mick Wall seems to have taken a whole load of content anyway).

I just assumed that was from translating Englsh to english


But yeah, read the Brannigan book and don't waste your time with any other ones.
