This even peeked my interest!  :)

Didn't he already write a book about them?  If it is the one I am thinking, I've quoted it from it more than I can remember.

I'm sure I will buy this, as I'm a completist, but man, that Popoff guy really cranks things out. Yes, he's already written about Rush (Contents Under Pressure) but he's also written about Metallica, and Iron Maiden, and AC/DC, and Motorhead, and . . . and . . . and on and on. He's the James Patterson of rock writing, with the same variation in quality and insight.

I predict 22% new material.

My thoughts exactly. I received "Rush: The Illustrated History" by him as a gift and then an "updated version"  was released 6 months later and it kind of rubbed me the wrong way.  I do love "Contents Under Pressure", though.  Like you, I wonder how much of this will be recycled from previous books.  I'm a sucker for photos, though, and if there are nice photos in it I'll probably put it on my list.  :lol:

Why he does not cover one of the most important records of the 1970s is beyond me...

Have both. (Got them about a year ago wondering what the difference was.) Difference is about 10 to 15 pages more and some different photos. And the different cover of course. Not a lot of deep memorabilia in both either which was disappointing.

Popoff is an atrocious writer but he has/had relationships with the band so his books at least usually have some new info/insights in them. Will I buy this? Yes.

I didn't like how he smugly dismissed Everyday Glory as "crap" in one of his books. I think it's a good song with merit.

I like it a lot, also. It is definitely a good song.

IMO, of course.
