Paul D'Ianno is one of rock 'n' roll's wildest, most notorious figures. In this autobiography, "The Beast" reveals the shocking stories of his life on the road, including the night he shot out a passing motorist's tyres with a rifle and the truth about his arrest for carrying a sub-machine gun. His tale is one of drugs, guns, alcohol; of extended periods banged up in a US Federal Penitentiary; and of course his time fronting one of the biggest rock groups of all time - Iron Maiden. Paul's antics off-stage are even more shocking than his behaviour on-stage. He truly is a man who makes Led Zeppelin look like a bunch of convent girls. He has lived a life treading the fine line of the law, and has battled through crazed drug addictions from the heights of worldwide fame to the pit of bankruptcy and beyond. This book is a look into the dark and disturbing times of a man who has spent his whole life courting his demons. Unfortunatly those demons always seemed to have got the upper hand.
