Overview: Definitive book of the history of Rock at Donington Park, told through hundreds of interviews with the bands, includes over 400 artists
In 2005 I started to write the book of the Donington & Download Festival (including Monsters Of Rock at Milton Keynes). I was coming to the end of completing the Official Book of the Reading Festival and saw Donington as the second release in my ‘Festival Series’ of books, covering my favourite festivals that I attend every year – Donington/Download Festival is the longest running rock festival in the UK, covering all genres from ‘rock’ to ‘classic rock’, ‘Emo to Screamo’, ‘Punk’ to ‘Hardcore’, ‘Black Metal’ to ‘Death Metal’ and every style in between, plus in the last 5 years the addition of ‘drum & bass’ and ‘dance’ – the festival that caters for all.
I have travelled the length and breadth of England interviewing bands and artists for the book and have had some great times in amongst the hard work. I’ve also had many phone interviews from Metallica to Testament, Lordi to Staind, Alice Cooper to Queensrÿche and also what was possibly one of the legend Ronnie James Dio’s last interviews, prior to cancelling his final UK tour.
