This is just, essentially, a test post, so you don’t have to read it. But eventually I’ll have a handful of posts in this “Bad Books” category that will be reviews of really bad/weird/funny books I’ve come across over the years. I used to stop into used book stores when I was bored on tour and try to leave with the most ridiculous thing I could find for under two dollars; at one point I had a decent collection and I think I still have a few sitting around.
Larson’s Book of Rock: For Those Who Listen To The Words and Don’t Like What They Hear was one such book. It’s notable for being perhaps the only book I’ve ever seen to feature underlining in the title. It’s a weird move, but I like it.
Alas, this book must have been tossed in the garbage at some point because I can’t find it. I remember that the author thought various dopey hair metal bands—all sorts of bands, really—were created and controlled by Satan. The book came out in 1987 or so, meaning that the targets were pretty tame; he probably went after Warrant, not Deicide.
I also remember that the book was boring, which is probably why I threw it away.
So there you go; there’s a test post.
