Paul Stenning, author of GUNS N' ROSES "The Band That Time Forgot" and AC/DC "Two Sides to Every Glory", who is going to be publishing a 130,000-word biography on IRON MAIDEN, entitled "30 Years of the Beast - The Complete Biography 1976-2006" (cover), has slammed the BLABBERMOUTH.NET detractors who have posted negative comments about his previously released excerpts from the MAIDEN book.
In a posting, titled "Fucking Assholes Permeate BLABBERMOUTH Like Unpaid Mutant Populous", on his official MySpace page, Stenning writes, "Okay, I admit it, I'm a sucker for reading what people say about me. I made the mistake AGAIN of reading the pathetic comments on Blabbermouth. OOhhh I'm a 'fucking hack.' Well, that would mean I take on routine or commercial writing. Hardly. Yes it's vaguely commercial because it's in the public domain, but I do mean vague. I mean, INTENSE HAMMER RAGE have recordings in the public domain, but songs about child porn are hardly commercial.
"Before anyone points it out, yes, I know these are idiots with limited brain cells who write comments on that site, but what really made me laugh as well as irked me, is the insinuation from the same guy (mutant) who reckons 'he or you' could have done the same job I do. I have one thing to say to that: fucking prove it! Go and do it, see how easy it is (I'm being sarcastic).
"Then come back to me, once you've got published and sold thousands of books and say to me, 'There you go, told you so.' Except that won't happen 'cos this prick is full of shit like almost anyone who leaves pointless comments on that site. So easy to say words, so hard to put them in order and write coherently. Try it dickface. THOSE WHO DON'T CREATE, DICTATE. Fuck you, rant over."
Due in September, "30 Years of the Beast - The Complete Biography 1976-2006" is described by the author as "the remarkable true story of IRON MAIDEN from the year of their inception to the present day. This is a painstakingly deep and accurate history of the band, told by the author — a lifelong MAIDEN fan — and a whole cast of characters who were there at the time. These include: Janick Gers, Bruce Dickinson, Steve Harris, Paul Di'Anno, Derek Riggs, Neal Kay, Dennis Stratton and many more."
