    Headbangers Book Club: Pamela Des Barres' I'm with the Band (Part 1)

    Headbangers Book Club: Pamela Des Barres' I'm with the Band (Part 1)

    This month's Headbangers Book Club Official Selection is a special one, as it's the first book we've read that's not a total sausage party! Pamela Des Barres may not have been a rock star in her own right (unless you count her brief stint in the Zappa-sponsored girl group the GTO's), but her memoir I'm with the Band is a vital counterpoint to the male-dominated hijinks of '60s and '70s rock; plus there's a couple of real questionable relationships with preteen boys, so it fits right in with our previous selection in even more ways than expected! We'll be back in a few weeks with Part 2. Thanks for listening! Show notes: https://dystopiandanceparty.com/blog/headbangers-book-club-pamela-des-barres-im-with-the-band-part-1/

    Headbangers Book Club: Morris Day's On Time (Part 2)

    It's #jhericurljune in July! After a brief delay due to COVID- and car theft-related trauma, we're finally back with Part 2 of our deep dive on Morris Day's 2019 memoir On Time: A Princely Life in Funk! Join us as we celebrate one of the greatest cultural achievements of the late 20th century ("Fishnet"), and we'll see you again in two weeks for the first half of Pamela Des Barres' I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie!

    Headbangers Book Club: Morris Day's On Time (Part 1)

    It's a special #jhericurljune installment of the ol' Book Club as we dig into 2019's On Time: A Princely Life in Funk by Morris Day with David Ritz--so, slightly less headbanging than normal, but don't worry, there's plenty of the important stuff (i.e., cocaine). We'll be back in a couple of weeks with Part 2, at which point we'll also announce our official HBC selection for July. Remember, don't let us Meat Loaf!

    Headbangers Book Club: Meat Loaf’s To Hell and Back

    Headbangers Book Club: Meat Loaf’s To Hell and Back

    Turns out Meat Loaf needed a little extra time in the oven, but we’re finally back to discuss the late vocal powerhouse’s 2000 memoir To Hell and Back. Join us as we ponder Meat’s many concussions, his suitably operatic relationship with the also-recently-departed Jim Steinman, and how he’s easily in the top five of anti-maskers we would have been okay catching COVID from. We’ll be back around the middle of next month for a special Jheri Curl June miniseries on Morris Day‘s On Time: A Princely Life in Funk!

    Hey mothertruckers, we’re Bach in the saddle with Part 2 of our series on Sebastian Bach‘s 18 and Life on Skid Row! This book really picked up in the second half, so please excuse the slightly flabby runtime; there’s just too many good stories for us not to discuss them.

    Headbangers Book Club: Sebastian Bach's 18 and Life on Skid Row (Part 1)

    This month’s official Headbangers Book Club selection is over five years in the making: Callie got her copy of Sebastian Bach‘s 18 and Life on Skid Row (signed by Sea Bass himself!) in late 2016, and we’re finally getting around to reading it. This episode covers the first half of the book, give or take, and so far we’re having a lot of fun with it! If you want to read along, there’s still time to catch up–we’ll be posting Part 2 by the end of the month! And if you want to get started early on next month’s book, we will be tackling Meat Loaf‘s To Hell and Back in April!
