According to WMTW, my newest source for rock news, Metallica will release an illustrated children's book called, "The ABCs of Metallica" in November. I'll be buying it for every friend expecting a child or grandchild, what an incredible baby shower gift.

The book sounds pretty cute, it tells the story of Metallica using alphabetical rhymes. Nice bedtime reading for your metal baby!

I didn't know that Metallica has a charitable foundation called, "All Within My Hands Foundation". Their non profit work helps support programs that address hunger prevention and workforce education and part of the proceeds from every book will go to the foundation. That's pretty hardcore.

The book won't be released until the fall, but you can preorder it here, right now.

Here's a lullaby to help you drift off to sleep ...Enter Sandman.
