The rock band Metallica will get a two-volume biography from Da Capo Press. Written by rock author Paul Brannigan and music journalist Ian Winwood, the first volume of Birth. School. Metallica. Death will hit shelves in the fall of 2013.
DeFiore & Company agent Matthew Elblonk negotiated the deal (in association with Matthew Hamilton at Aitken Alexander) with Da Capo Press executive editor Ben Schafer.
The editor had this comment: “Metallica’s story is an epic narrative finally getting the same multi-book treatment as Elvis Presley, Charles Darwin, and several former Presidents.”
