Book Hour: “Birth. School. METALLICA. Death.” with author Ian Winwood


(00:00) Listen to the author discuss the amazing early history of Metallica. The story transcends whether you like heavy metal music. The book reveals how Lars Ulrich had no musical ability, announced how he was going to have a great rock band, gave himself ten days to learn drums, and achieved his vision. James Hetfield found Ulrich through an advertisement for a guitarist and they had a total lack of chemistry when they met.

Nonetheless, the band grew larger than its members and their lifestyles. Guitarists were replaced and one died. Their unbelievable work ethic and commitment to their vision never wavered. This book is not just a great music biography. It is a great biography, period. Listen to author Ian Winwood tell the stories.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
