Bruce Dickinson Announces U.S. Book Tour For “What Does This Button Do?”

Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson will be releasing his long awaited memoir, “What Does This Button Do?,” on October 19th via HarperNonFiction, and it’s going to be quite the read. Here’s the official synopsis: “In “What Does This Button Do?”, Bruce (a man who famously never gives interviews about his personal life) shares, for the first time, the most fascinating recollections, including his thirty years with Iron Maiden, the early days, his childhood within the eccentric British school system, going solo, realising his dream of flying jumbo jets and his recent battle with tongue cancer. Dickinson is so much more than the frontman of one of the biggest bands on the planet. A rock icon, a true renaissance man, Bruce has been, and remains, a man of legend.

To celebrate its release, the legend has announced a U.S. book tour, where he will talk about writing the memoir, read excerpts, answer fans questions, and more. Continue reading

So Let It Be Written: The Biography of Metallica’s James Hetfield

If you know me at all, you know that Metallica is my favorite band of all time, and you know that James Hetfield is one of the biggest inspirations in my life. It’s been that way ever since I first heard Master Of Puppets in the hallways of my middle school, and the love for this band is still as strong today. When I heard that Mark Eglinton was working on the first and only biography of James Hetfield, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I’ve followed Hetfield’s career more than most, and any chance I have to learn more is a welcomed opportunity. While this book did not tell me anything that I didn’t already know, because I’m as die-hard at they come, it’s still a brilliant look into one of heavy metal’s most important icons.
