In Jersey Metal, Frank and Alan team up to offer a unique autobiographical perspective on NJ’s Heavy Metal music history through photos, ads interviews and band bios. Jersey Metal Volume One 1969 to 1986 covers the early years to the mid 1980’s of the formation of Heavy Metal here in New Jersey and how it became such an important part of the music scene in the Garden State. The book covers the Metal scene when bands started out as cover bands that rose to worldwide successful acts to local cover Metal bands, Metal tribute bands, original local Metal bands, and Metal bands that toured throughout the state over the years. There is also respect paid to the venues these groups frequented, the radio stations, record companies, stores, and the Jersey shore that all helped grow New Jersey’s wild Heavy Metal scene.
