Lonn Friend


For the iteration coming of age within the years from 1987 to 1994, "RIP" journal used to be every piece as an important as "Rolling Stone." "Life on""Planet Rock" describes how Lonn good friend, the editor of "RIP," grew to become the Zelig-like chronicler of the most important musical moments of that time--from introducing weapons N' Roses (in not anything yet a best hat, undies, and cowboy boots) to sitting in in the course of the making of Metallica's "Black Album." "Life on""Planet Rock" offers revealing graphics of artists as diverse as Kurt Cobain, Gene Simmons, Alice Cooper, Axl Rose, James Hetfield, Steven Tyler, and lots of extra. half oral background, half candid and funny memoir, it's a wormhole again to a fast-moving time in song that observed tastes flash from new wave to hair steel to grunge, informed as merely an individual who was once there via all of it may well inform it.
