Authors Paul Brannigan and Ian Winwood have just written a book that every single Metallica or metal fan needs to read, called Birth School Metallica Death. The book hit shelves and online retailers this week. Volume one tells the story of Metallica up until the release of the Black album with so much detail that even the most hard core of fan will learn something new. This weekend Paul Brannigan is in the Hangar to talk about early Metallica and how he and Ian decided to write a book on the biggest band in the world.
