Punk! Hardcore! Reggae! PMA! Bad Brains! Provides Overview Of Legendary Band

On par with only a select few rock bands, the BAD BRAINS influenced numerous artists over the years - covering a wide range of styles. This is understandable, as the BAD BRAINS themselves offered up a variety of sounds since forming in the late '70s (punk, hardcore, reggae, metal, funk, etc.), and in the process, penned some of rock’s all-time great tunes ("Pay to Cum", "Sailin' On", "Re-Ignition", "Sacred Love") and classic albums (Bad Brains, Rock for Light, I Against I, Quickness). But somehow, someway, the BAD BRAINS never managed to truly break through to the mainstream - while many of the bands they influenced (BEASTIE BOYS, LIVING COLOUR, NIRVANA) did.

At last, there is now a book that tells the story of the band, Punk! Hardcore! Reggae! PMA! Bad Brains! Written by journalist/author Greg Prato, the book is part traditional biography and part oral history. Interviews include Charlie Benante (ANTHRAX), Max Cavalera (SOULFLY/ex-SEPULTURA), Chad Channing (NIRVANA), Jamey Jasta (HATEBREED), Curt Kirkwood (MEAT PUPPETS), Mitts (MADBALL), Chuck Mosley (ex-FAITH NO MORE/ex-BAD BRAINS), Greg Puciato (DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), Travis Stever (COHEED AND CAMBRIA), Tesco Vee (MEATMEN) and Tim Williams (VISION OF DISORDER), among many others.

Rolling Stone and has authored such books as Grunge is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock Music, The Faith No More & Mr. Bungle Companion, Too High To Die: Meet The Meat Puppets and MTV Ruled The World: The Early Years of Music Video. Punk! Hardcore! Reggae! PMA! Bad Brains! is his fourteenth book overall. He is also a long-time fan of the BAD BRAINS - having interviewed most of the band's members over the years (of which excerpts from these interviews are included in this book), and having witnessed quite a few BAD BRAINS performances over the years.

Available as both a paperback version [$14.99], a Kindle download [$9.99], and a Nook download [$9.99], Punk! Hardcore! Reggae! PMA! Bad Brains! helps put it all into perspective.
