Quantcast

Detroit best be getting ready for the Rock N Roll goodness that's set to descend upon Belle Isle on June 8th & 9th, 2013. METALLICA has just announced the lineup for their second annual festival, one that makes me wish this was taking place closer to home here in Chicago. Headliners will include Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, Deftones and Bassnectar. Other acts include the mighty TOMAHAWK, along with DROPKICK MURPHYS, FU MANCHU, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, Gogol Bordello, Foals, The Joy Formidable, Death Grips, and more. Watch the video below...

Musicbot 6000 here with a press release for Metallica fans and Horror fans worldwide! Check it out...

Metallica's Kirk Hammett announced today that he will publish his first book, Too Much Horror Business - The Kirk Hammett Collection, this October via Abrams Image. Documenting Kirk's love of all things horror, and the legendary collection of horror memorabilia he has amassed over the years, TMHB is a stunning 228 page, hardback, large format coffee table book featuring well over 300 full color images from Kirk's private collection and exclusive set photography by Mark Leialoha and Joe Gibbs. There will be three extensive conversations with writer Steffan Chirazi covering the importance of collecting in Hammett's life from childhood, plus written captions by Kirk for many of the items displayed in the book.

Updated: The Official Press Release follows the post.

It's pretty appropriate that the first ''new'' post here on The Rock Father™'s own site relates to one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. While their ''big announcement'' scheduled for 1pm CST is running late, I can confirm that METALLICA will headline their own ORION MUSIC + MORE Festival on June 23 & 24, 2012 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
