Book Hour: Into the Black – The Inside Story of Metallica 1991-2014


You won;t believe what happened during Metallica’s 1992 tour with Guns N’ Roses and how they took professional risks to remain the greatest heavy metal band in history. Some risks worked while others had to be overcome. Significantly, listen to the stories of the band members. James Hetfield had his personal struggles. Kirk Hammett, the lead guitarist of the greatest band on earth, could have taken a bad path but he used his hiatus to study jazz and Asian history at San Francisco State University. Lars Ulrich was vilified as greedy for taking on Napster and internet piracy but he redeemed himself as a visionary in the struggles between the music industry and fair compensation for musicians. Listen to a fascinating author, Ian Winwood, talk about his extraordinary book about a remarkable band.

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.
