This week Im having a chat with Joel McIver. Since 2012, Joel has been the editor of Bass Guitar magazine, and since 2018, editor of Bass Player after the two publications merged. His best-known work is Justice for All: The Truth About Metallica, first published in 2004 and appearing in nine languages since then. As well as writing his own books, McIver also co-writes musicians' autobiographies. The first of these was the memoir of sometime Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes, published in 2011. Other memoirs co-written by McIver include those of Max Cavalera of Soulfly, Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, David Bowie's former drummer Woody Woodmansey and blues veteran John Mayall.
