Here are details of my latest book, a guide to the solo music of the Metal God himself, Mr. Rob Halford:
MADE OF METAL – A CASUAL GUIDE TO THE SOLO MUSIC OF JUDAS PRIEST'S ROB HALFORD
BY NEIL DANIELS
PUBLISHED BY CREATESPACE
WORLDWIDE RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 31, 2014
A Casual Guide To The Solo Music Of Judas Priest's Rob Halford
Rob Halford is a heavy metal icon and his influence on the genre is immeasurable. Bands such as Anthrax, Pantera, Slayer and Metallica have cited Rob Halford and Judas Priest as a major inspiration on their own music. This book isn't about Judas Priest as such, though it inevitably touches on the subject, but rather Halford's varied solo music.
Made Of Metal explores the solo music of one of the greatest singers of all time. From Halford's first post-Judas Priest project Fight through to his controversial collaboration with Trent Reznor with the album Voyeurs right up to his metal rebirth with his self-titled band, Halford, this handy guide celebrates Halford's creativity and love of all things heavy metal.
From the author of the acclaimed The Story Of Judas Priest – Defenders Of The Faith, Rock Landmarks – Judas Priest's British Steel and Dawn Of The Metal Gods – My Life In Judas Priest And Heavy Metal (with Al Atkins), Made Of Metal is the first book to exclusively explore the solo music of the Metal God himself, Mr. Rob Halford. Made Of Metal celebrates Halford's musical legacy and offers titbits of information and trivia about his career as well as a biography, discographies, a timeline, reviews and tributes from leading musicians and music writers. There are also many previously unpublished live photographs of the heavy metal icon.
Made Of Metal is essential reading for Rob Halford fans.

In other news, here are some quotes from the latest round of reviews of my books:
"...it's a good read and really does delve into the history of the album, even the cover hot -and the cover shot that should have been. Photographer Mark Weiss tells the tale very entertainingly, I must admit."
Jeb Wright – Classic Rock Revisited (www.classicrockrevisited.com)
"Killers: The Origins of Iron Maiden is another fine piece in Neil Daniels' catalog, a solid biography of one of the most acclaimed metal acts. It attempts to explain why Iron Maiden became giants they are today, with analysis of all the factors that contributed to it – both artistic and business aspects."
Alexandra Mrozowska – Hardrock Haven (http://hardrockhaven.net)
