Wow, can you believe six months have passed already this year? I haven’t even finished reading books I got as Christmas presents yet. Anyway; courtesy of LastFm, here is what I’ve been listening to this year.
This year I’ve been really into audiobooks, specifically of musicians. I’ve had Scott Ian of Anthrax, David Ellefson of Megadeth, Duff Mcakagen of GNR, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row, Paul Stanley of Kiss. Its really quite fun when they read their own books.
It also has an influence on your listening habits. I listened to ’90s Anthrax a lot more when I was listening to Scott’s books, and I currently took the step of buying the ’80s Kiss albums like Animalize and Lick It Up which I always held back from, thanks to listening to Paul Stanley’s book.
I hope more people do this. Rex Brown and Max Cavelera are on the wishlist for sure.
