Well nor did I. But if you want to buy stuff online...

Just make sure you pay it all off each month :)

I too am a massively smug £18.59 early adopter. 

Might not be here in time for someone to buy it off me to give back as a Christmas present. Luckily I've got a birthday in mid-January

Quite looking forward to my 18 quid pre-order.

Assuming it ever turns up - I seem to get a couple of revised/delayed release emails every week... 9_9

I am also a jammy bugger having pre ordered at the original price. I don`t think I would have paid £50 for it. Still, Bernie Marsden brought out another book featuring his guitars and the cheapest edition is £99 and the most expensive is £999!

 

There is a interview with Ged in this months Classic Rock mag about the book and other things.

Wonder if it's possible to change the quantity in my order & buy 10 copies at £18...

...

...

Then sell them here for £40 a pop. :D :ph34r:

Great timing -  going to be away until next week.

I'm sure it'll be fine left in next door's bin! :(

me neither. I have a Visa debit card for online buying and payment of bills etc.

I only put money into it just before buying something and only enough to cover that. If it ever gets hacked they won't get more than $5

I cancelled my pre-order about a month ago as started to begrudge paying £40 for a book.

I might regret that but will wait and see what the comments are like and if its actually worthwhile buying.

Stunning book, Bass porn at its best, If you like bass you need this. I was a early order but I would pay the full price.

It's here! I can't open the bugger 'till Christmas day, though.

FWIW, it's massive, and heavy - a proper coffee-table book. If I had paid the full 50 quid for it, it at least feels like it's worth it.

Not so interested in the pics, more his prose? Wry? Witty? Factual? Less verbose than his drummer? What's it like?

P.S. Presumably pages 2-400 are him ragging on his RIck?

I had a quick look when I got home.  Well worth the sub-£20 I paid through Amazon's pre-order.  The cover price is $75.

Woop.
