Talkin’ Rock with The Meaning Of Metallica – Ride The Lyrics author William Irwin Download

44:08 Download April 19th

Today’s Talkin’ Rock features a little different conversation than you might be used to hearing on my podcast. Today, I talk with author William Irwin about his book The Meaning Of Metallica – Ride The Lyrics. This is a deep dive into the lyric writing mind of James Hetfield. This is an interesting interview with a guy who did all the heavy lifting so you could understand the meaning of some of your favorite thrash classics. From religion, to death, to addiction and everything in between. 

Enjoy!
