IMG_2380 IMG_2381 IMG_2382

Well isn’t this a pretty thing to find in the post? It’s my first chance to see a finished copy of the book with the quotations from Kurt, Dave and Aaron on the back and all the photographs in place and so forth. Neat!

The book comes out on March 31 and is available via Amazon and all other major book sites:

Also definitely overdue to share the rest of the chronology describing which bands are in the book. I’ve also put the full list of bands who took part below as well.
