Established rock scribe Mick O'Shea is the author of music books, including Only Anarchists are Pretty: The Early Days of the Sex Pistols (Classic Rock described it as "Genius"), the Guns N Roses Encyclopedia, and most recently The Anarchy Tour.
Tread carefully for here lie: Ronnie James Dio, Bon Scott, John Bonham, Peter Steele, Cliff Burton, Dimebag Darrell, Paul Gray, Layne Staley, Dead, Jimmy ?The Rev’ Sullivan, Lemmy Kilmister, Ozzy Osbourne, Nikki Sixx, Dave Mustaine, Axl Rose, Trent Reznor, Slash, Marilyn Manson, Varg Vikernes and Corey Taylor.

Between genius and madness, this world and the next, there’s nothing but the faintest flicker of a pulse and the cemetery gates ? as these twisted metal icons know all too well. Purveyors of the sickest, slickest sounds on the planet, they’ve more demons between them than Dante’s Inferno. Whatever their deadly sin, these prodigiously talented hellraisers have all come dangerously close to the edge. Tragically, not all of them have returned.

Uncovering the crazed antics of each, Cemetery Gates is the ultimate tribute to the stoical survivors who dragged themselves back from the abyss ? and the sainted icons who weren’t so lucky. Gifted with mind-blowing musical prowess, the likes of Dio and Dimebag may be gone. But this book ? a riotous epitaph to men who’ve lived day as if it was their last ? ensures they'll never be forgotten.
