About the Author
MIKE McPADDEN is the author of Heavy Metal Movies: The 666 Most Headbanging Films of All Time, the head writer at MrSkin.com, and the editor of multiple volumes of Mr. Skin's Skincyclopedia. A punk in the '80s, he came to Metallica mid-decade upon seeing a Mohawk-headed, safety-pinned lovely in a RIDE THE LIGHTNING T-shirt. When he drank, he drank Jagermeister, because Lars Ulrich told him to. It never helped his guitar playing.
