I remember picking up melody maker by complete chance (normally I guess I'd pick up the NME, cant remember why I didnt) in London on the way home after being completely incomunnicado for a few months - at that point I didnt even know that John was gone, the last I'd seen him (maybe 6 months earlier ?) he was still sharp and funny, albeit it not so sharp and funny as he had been
I'm pretty sure there was nothing on the cover about it, but it was surprising because it was the center pages - I guess someone at the melody maker at the time was a huge fan of Thunders/Hell ?
I just pulled out hot and cold and reread it tonight, and I believe its one of Richards finest pieces possibly because it was 17 years in the making, its incredibly well balanced and he understands the subject matter (and the subject matter is as much Hell as Thunders)
It was also in some other publication/compilation but without the inserts that are thankfully reproduced in Hot and Cold - some book on rock criticism or something ? I dont seem to have a copy, but I do remember it (fairly) clearly - I think it was the last chapter in the book - was there any differences between the 3 versions ?
