The heavy metal guitarist is to recount his rise to fame and time in the spotlight in his memoirs, which are due for release next year (14).
He says in a statement, "Why a book? Because I think my story can connect with anyone and, if I was able to make the life I wanted for myself happen, then anyone can. I'm really excited to be writing a book because the idea of getting forty-something years of stuff out of my brain and onto the page seems very therapeutic. Plus if I didn't do it now, I'd start forgetting and wouldn't be able to share all these killer stories with you, my friends!"
The book will be titled I'm The Man.
