Absolutely Hilarious (stand-up show review) - Neil GaimanCombining the passion of a true fan with his communication skills as a stand-up, O'Neill informs and entertains about his favourite subject (stand-up show) - ChortleLoud, unapologetic and full of love, Andrew O'Neill's essential and much-needed History of Heavy Metal is as funny and preposterous as this mighty music deserves. - John Higgs - author of The KLF: Chaos, Magic and the Band who Burned a Million PoundsOne of the funniest musical commentators that you will ever read. A History of Heavy Metal is a comprehensive, landmark analysis of an enormous area of music that has been too long without such a thing, and has the massive advantage of the funny being turned up to twelve. A loud and thoroughly engrossing love-story. - Alan Moore
