UK Author with new book on Bon Jovi

St. Helens-born author Neil Daniels has written acclaimed biographies of Judas Priest and Robert Plant and early this year his next two books will be published, featuring the early years of Judas with founder Al Atkins plus an A-Z encyclopaedia of Bon Jovi.

Neil (27) who has a degree in Film Studies started writing for fanzines and ezines after university for a couple of years before launching into his writing career.

He told the [St. Helen's] Star: “I had an idea for a book on Judas Priest about the time they reformed because there had never been one on them for years and after months of talks with various publishers Omnibus Press agreed that there was a gap in the market for such a book. And ‘Defenders Of The Faith: The Story Of Judas Priest’ was released in hardback in 2007 to (mostly) excellent reviews.”

And the book is proving a worldwide winner with Bulgarian, Polish and German translations due later this year.

He continued: "Following that my fifth book is an A-Z history of Bon Jovi, who are a world away from Brummie rock singers. Surprisingly there really isn’t anything about Bon Jovi’s music in the shops and online apart from a bio of Jon which is more about him as a celebrity than a musician."

"This is a book about their music as well as the solo careers of each member and basically anything relating to the band and main man JBJ." It will be published in May 2009 by Chrome Dreams.

Hmmmm.... it's coming out in May. Could it be a great summer read? Or will it be the same old rehashing we see in every "unauthorized" biography type book that comes around. I have to say though, the photo they chose for cover art is fun. I mean, look at Jon's expression. It's like "Really? You're serious?" lmao
