Diving into Heavy Metal
Diving Into Heavy Metal! It started off with my dad's record collection... the Rolling Stones, ELO, Slade. And then my older brother's cassettes... Queen, the Stranglers, the J Geils Band. But when I ran into Iron Maiden at the age of eleven my course in life was set. That was the springboard which catapulted me into the incredible world of heavy metal. My record and cassette collections exploded into a metallic maelstrom as I discovered Dio, AC/DC, Metallica and Motorhead.
And naturally there were posters, t shirts, gigs, guitars... And one or two bruises along the way! But this is not just the story of my life with the music. Diving into Heavy Metal! also introduces readers to a community of fans that span not only the genre but also the world. So, if you're into Iron Maiden, Guns N' Roses, Slayer, Megadeth, King Diamond, Morbid Angel and the like, this book is for you. Go on...
