A Leaner, Meaner “Heroes”

878.0Consulting Editor Rusty Cutchin has written the introduction and several artist profiles for the new Guitar Heroes book from Flame Tree Publishing in London. Rock Guitar Heroes features the top rock legends from the company’s previous coffee-table effort, the International Encyclopedia of Guitar Heroes, along with several new additions, including, among others, Joe Bonamasso, Dave Mustaine, and two highly influential females, Lita Ford and Joni Mitchell. The book features a foreword by celebrated Queen guitarist Brian May.

Cutchin’s 1200-word intro touches on the history of the term hero as it applies to our most celebrated and admired musicians, as well as providing some history of the instrument itself. Rock Guitar Heroes is due out in September, 2014. A US distributor has not been announced. Click here for more info.
