EDDIE TRUNK’S ESSENTIAL HARD ROCK AND HEAVY METAL, VOL 2
I’m now less than a month away from the release of my second book Eddie Trunk’s Essential Hard Rock & Heavy Metal VOL 2. Thanks to all who purchased my first book in 2011 my publisher asked for another, and I was happy to do it. So many bands I love got cut out of book one for space, so it was easy to come up with another 35 main chapter bands for VOL 2. Now that this one is done I’m already bummed about bands cut from this for space, so maybe VOL 3 one day? But I’m getting ahead of myself! VOL 2 is the exact same format as the first book which many told me they loved with a forward by Slash. Easy reading, playlists, cool exclusive photos, and much more. It’s the same publisher (Abrams) as book one, so it looks and feels like the sequel it’s intended to be. The official release is 9/24 physical and digital wherever books are sold. Pre Orders now on Amazon at a special low price. The first leg of my nationwide signing tour is listed on the home page with more cities and stops to come. And of course the first book is still available now anywhere you buy books physical and digital (Itunes also). You can also still buy book 1 direct from me if you’d like it signed and personalized. Just hit book tab on the site for info. Please note I can not sell VOL 2 directly on my site as signed copies until a couple months after the 9/24 nationwide release. So please order through Amazon or your favorite book store and come to the signings if you can. Happy to sign any and all there or anywhere you catch me. Also note that many of the locations I am doing signings in require you to buy a book from them to have it signed at the event. All signings will also have copies of my first book available as well. Thanks so much for the support. Really excited for the release and the tour! It all starts 9/24 at the Hard Rock in Times Sq at 6:30P. More to come but here for the first time is the list of the 35 main chapter bands featured in VOL 2, some were teased as “More Essentials” in the first book. Now they are getting the full treatment. (please note there are other bands also represented in VOL 2, this is just a list of the main full chapter bands):
Alice In Chains
Blue Oyster Cult
Ace Frehley (solo years)
Slash (outside GnR)
Zakk Wylde (BLS, solo)
