    A. Smith "Monsters Of River And Rock: My Life As Iron Maiden's Compulsive Angler"




    IRON MAIDEN guitarist Adrian Smith. Titled "Monsters Of River And Rock: My Life As Iron Maiden's Compulsive Angler", the 288-page book will be released via Ebury, the non-fiction specialists of Penguin Random House.


    "There's not that many bands that have been around as long as we have," Smith told the New York Post earlier in the month. "I left the band in '89, I had a bit of a break, which was great for me. I appreciate every second of it now, but maybe in the '80s it was slightly different."

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Loved Bruce Dickinson's, can't wait for this.

    I really hope he doesn't have a ghostwriter. I've always considered Dickinson/Harris/Smith the greatest, smartest writing team in history, so I don't think he needs one.

    That is just another reason Bruce Dickinson is the best. My reverence for BD was already maxed, but the fact he did his autobiography without a ghostwriter was just another act of legitness by the most legit metal band ever.

    I've read other Metal biographies. Dave Mustaine, Ozzy, etc. etc. etc. And it's like, they're cool, but they are also heavily ghostwritten. The authors are always listed as the subject of the autobiography and at least one additional guy.

    Whatever flaws Bruce Dickinson's autobiography may have had (not covering large swathes of history the reader might be interested in hearing about mainly) were more than made up for by the fact he actually wrote his own autobiography in a field where fucking no one is capable of writing their own autobiography.

    Bruce even addressed that, though - he's said many times that he wasn't going to deal with the "dirt" side of things, and he's even relatively gentle on Clive, from what I've heard about what a pain he was to deal with.
