A new book about heavy metal in the 1980s is now available to buy. It is called Rock and Roll Children and it is written by Michael D. LeFevre. Below is the official press release.

It’s the 1980s and heavy metal music has exploded across America and Frankie, Bob, Rick and Jeff are caught up in it. From Dio to Twisted Sister, these metal heads hit up every concert they can. Attending college in different states, and even countries, heavy metal music is what bringsthese four best friends back together summer after summer.
But with the middle of the 1980s begins the “intolerance” of heavy metal music. Girlfriends, yuppies and Jesus freaks want to put an end to the heavy metal scene just as artists like Ozzy Osbourne and Aerosmith are playing their greatest hits! Cracks begin emerging in their friendship while everyone is trying to make their own way in the world, especially when Jeff’s travels lead him to England. Will heavy metal all-stars like Ted Nugent, Anthrax and Judas Priest bring these four friends back together? Or are their partying days long over?
