It Looks As If: the new Motorhead Collector's Guide has been accepted in preference to the old and previously much sought after, 1993 edition.
On, there are 4 copies, ranging from £64.94, to a crazy £447.59.

The 'Rest of the World' (Planet) will take a few days longer, but the mail still travels pretty fast.
Being the Wurzel Tribute issue, it was kind of rock photographer, George Chin, to offer the front cover shot as his tribute. The photo on page 2 was taken the first time I met Wurzel, Phil Campbell, and Pete Gill; when they were rehearsing and writing for their 'No Remorse' album, and 'May-hem-day' Hammersmith Odeon vinyl and live debuts.
