PiercingMetal.com had the honor of being one of the many guests of Eddie Trunk and the fine folks from Abrams Books at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square in order to celebrate the release of the radio/television personality’s first ever book – “Eddie Trunk’s Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal”. For many years the general public has known Eddie from his radio shows both satellite and terrestrial and then as the main man on the VH1 Classic hit program “That Metal Show”. Now he can add author to his listing of accomplishments. The affair was not open to the general public but some of the shows fans were given the opportunity to win a spot in the room and also to receive a copy of the book to take home with them after it was all done. Pretty cool eh?
Considering that the site was a guest of Eddie and the publishing house my presence was more about raising a glass in honor of the book and to enjoy myself but that would not stop me from snapping some photos and bringing the readership into the room with me in some fashion after it had finished. Here’s a shot of Eddie holding the book and its principle photographer Ron Akiyama.
