Long time, no nothin’.
Here’s the deal, hombres y mamis: although you’ve no doubt been enamored with my fineness in print by way of The Factsheet Five Zine Reader, Bubblegum Music Is the Naked Truth, The Official Heavy Metal Book of Lists, Mr. Skin’s Skincyclopedia, and Mr. Skin’s Skintastic Video Guide (along with some bizarre anthology the name of which I can’t remember that reprinted my Devil in Miss Jones 5 screenplay), several books either existing now or on the way also bear Hard and Heavy McBeardness
Two such efforts will even have my very own name on the byline!
If You Like Metallica… by Mike McPadden (Hal Leonard Books) launches June 1. Get ready for a shill-acking campaign nonpareil. Even if the merest flicker of a thought about Lars Ulrich curdle your body-milk, remember that this book is me—McBEARDO! #1!—writing finger-loose and fancy free about metal, punk, classic rock, stoner doom, industrial, and nipple rings in a Ride the Lightning t-shirt circa 1986. YOU will ride the lightning… in your pants!
Heavy Metal Movies by Mike McPadden. I’m writing this definitive thrashterpiece for the mighty Bazillion Points. It a leviathan in progress, to be delivered from Ian Christe and Company to your grabby mitts in spring 2013. “Like” HEAVY METAL MOVIES on Facebook and love me, love me, love me as I labor on this giant.
The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock-N-Roll Lists (Soft Skull Press) by Judy McGuire features my chapter-length contribution on the best Rock-N-Roll Porno Movies.
And then… when all the crust is settled, I’m going to expand Madonna Boots into a full-blown memoir/manifesto regarding Teenage Romance.
What’s keeping all of you out there busy? HAH?!
