Susan’s Book Talk: Coveting the Wolf


Yep, here I go again… more rock and roll book coveting.

This one’s a bit different. It’s an unauthorized biography. I usually stay away from unauthorized anythings, but … it’s about Hetfield. You guys know how much I love Hetfield.

The book is called James Hetfield: The Wolf at Metallica’s Door. It was written by Mark Eglinton, who is apparently an author (ya think?) and journalist. (Janiss, do you know him?) It claims to have interviews from such cool folk as:

Charlie Benante [ANTHRAX], Jerry Cantrell [ALICE IN CHAINS], Rex Brown [PANTERA, DOWN], Jeff Waters [ANNIHILATOR] and Mille Petrozza [KREATOR], among a list of equally important others, and to kick things off there’s an excellent and fitting foreword by legendary [TESTAMENT] singer Chuck Billy.

(Quote stolen from the article on Blabbermouth. and I really hope that link works… but if not, you know how to go to Blabbermouth and search for the book title. Really. If I can do it, so can you.)

And now it’s time when I do my shameless begging for a free review copy… I mean, heck. I’m already predisposed to liking it, right?

      I always say nice things — the “apparently” was in reference to how obvious it was that if you wrote a book, you were an author. I’m pretty smart, but even if I wasn’t, I’d still be able to figure that authors write books.
