When my kids were babies….many many years ago….used to rock them to sleep. Yes, I mean rock them to sleep usually with music like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Motorhead and Jimmy Buffett….hey, it all can’t be metal..haha. Today, my kids love and appreciate classic rock and metal. So I guess my plan worked.

Now Metallica is releasing a children’s book. “The ABCs of Metallica” it's a kid-friendly look back at the history of Metallica. I assume that "N" will be for the whole Napster thing. James Hetfield has said that Metallica shows have become more family-friendly after he had kids so I guess this is the next natural step.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit All Within My Hands, the band's charity foundation, which fights hunger and supports workforce education in struggling communities.  The book is available for pre-order for $18.99 on their site and will be available November 26th, just in time for Christmas! https://www.metallica.com/abcs/
