I just went onto the Blabbermouth site and damn near laughed my ass off at the comments posted. I think I would read the Atkins bio (all 3 pages of it) for sheer morbid curiosity if for no other reason. But you can't help but feel as though Al seems to want to do some coattail-riding the way Gull Records liked to regurgitate up new versions of "Best of Judas Priest" etc. in a pathetic cash grab effort.
Here's something else to think about......if Atkins is such a marvelous singer, how come after he left Priest nobody ever heard of him again (other than a historic footnote in the world of metal history). And if Priest had gone reggae or something, would he be on the cover of this book sporting dreds and a tie-dye shirt smokin' a fatty, mon??? Instead of the leather jacket? Makes you wonder.
Now look out. Pretty soon that guy who sang for Iron Maiden (before Di'Anno and Dickinson) is going to write a bio. I think there was a one singer or maybe two before them.
