Authors Tom Beaujour & Rich Bienstock captured the rise and fall of one of the most storied eras in rock & roll history in their new book, “Nothin’ But A Good Time: The Uncensored History of the ‘80s Hard Rock Explosion.” They document the exploding hard metal scene on the Sunset Strip in the 80s, stuff of legend, epitomized by the image, reputation, and music of the notorious bad boys of metal, Motley Crue. They explore flyer’ing culture, pay-to-play, competition and camaraderie, the birth of grunge, and the abrupt end to a style of music that was all but cancelled by the early 90s. Tom & Rich share stories from their interviews with Ozzy Osbourne, Poison, Warrant, Dokken, Trixter, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister, Skid Row, Winger, Faster Pussycat, producer Howard Benson, famous music manager Cliff Burnstein, and scores of roadies, label execs, sound engineers, and security guards. You’ll hear about the practical joke that Dokken played on producer Tom Werman, Slash’s failed audition for Poison, Sebastian Bach’s first night with Skid Row, and the wild plane ride to Russia for the Make A Difference Foundation benefit concert.
