Access All Areas: Stories from a Hard Rock Life
Rock stars invariably have the best stories. They travel to amazing places, engage in ridiculous activities, and spend obscene amounts of money in mind-blowingly stupid and/or awe-inspiring fashion. But very few rock stars are good storytellers, often relying on others to help them build their legends in print media.
Scott Ian requires no such help. He’s a hilarious, honest, intelligent storyteller, and even adventures that would feel mundane by comparison become compelling when he’s behind the wheel. Access All Areas proves my point with style, as Ian shares tales from his life covering poker, partying, celebrity, strange coincidences, and moments where his inner fan was let out to play (often involving The Walking Dead).
Ian threads the needle, sharing experiences that are both engaging and super-entertaining while managing to remain so conversational and accessible that you feel like you’re chatting with an old friend who’s had some wild experiences, not a music icon with plenty of names to drop. Access All Areas is great fun for fans of Scott Ian, but it’s arguably more fun if you don’t know much about him because you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
