I AM MORBID
Ten Lessons Learned from Extreme Metal, Outlaw
Country and the Power of Self-Determination
by DAVID VINCENT with JOEL MCIVER
JAWBONE PRESS is pleased to announce the long-awaited autobiography
of DAVID VINCENT, the legendary frontman for extreme metal pioneers,
MORBID ANGEL, and outlaw country artist who is now the frontman
for two supergroups, VLTIMAS and I AM MORBID.
I didn’t want to write a conventional autobiography. You know the kind of book I mean, where a rock musician gets famous, falls from grace (ha!), and then recovers after some kind of redemption. I’ve been through some of that stuff, but I like to think there’s more to my years on the planet than the old familiar tale. Many of those stories seem to be about drugs, addiction, rehab, and relapse, but that was never my issue. My challenges weren’t any less challenging than anyone else’s; they just manifested themselves in different ways. This book is about what I’ve learned, which is a lot, but never enough ... David Vincent
I AM MORBID tells the astounding story of DAVID VINCENT. Written with the bestselling author, JOEL MCIVER and with a foreword by ROSETTA space mission project scientist, DR. MATT TAYLOR, it’s an autobiography that transcends the heavy metal category by its very nature. Much more than a mere memoir, it’s an instruction manual for life at the sharp end; a gathering of wisdom distilled into ten acute lessons for anyone interested in furthering their fortunes in life.
I AM MORBID will be published in paperback and ebook formats in February 2020. It will also be available in a deluxe hardcover collector’s edition, strictly limited to 100 copies - of which, full details to be announced soon.
Ahead of the book’s publication, David will be touring across Europe with VLTIMAS throughout January and February 2020. Full details at www.facebook.com/VLTIMAS/events.
Exclusive Excerpt from I AM MORBID...
I remember on one occasion we were driving through rural Kentucky and we stopped at a truck stop. At the time, we’d just gotten our very first royalty check for Altars Of Madness, and as a result we all had several thousand dollars in our pockets. You can imagine the locals’ reaction: we were essentially a bunch of long-haired Neanderthals, and we all had a load of cash, so the staff of the truck stop assumed we were drug dealers.
