Unauthorized W.A.S.P. Biography In The Works

U.K.-based writer Darren Upton (pictured below) is working on the unauthorized and unofficial biography of W.A.S.P. titled "Sting In The Tale", featuring new interviews with Randy Piper (guitar), Chris Holmes (guitar) and Stet Howland (drums).

Commented Upton: "I've been a W.A.S.P. fan for 23 years now. Everything about Blackie [Lawless] and his band attracted me, from their cool costumes, over-the-top stage shows, and, of course, the music! Anthems like 'L.O.V.E. Machine', 'I Wanna be Somebody' and 'Wild Child' have penetrated our very psyches from the first time we were exposed to them, and resound in us to this very day. I felt it was about time that somebody wrote a complete biography on W.A.S.P. After years of waiting and wishing, I realized that if a book was to be authored, I would have to write it myself!

The official book description: "W.A.S.P. were one of the primary heavy metal bands to crawl from the gutter of the Los Angeles scene of the early '80s. Led by the charismatic, dark and intense Blackie Lawless, W.A.S.P. went on to cement their status as rock legends. From their early shows full of blood and gore to Blackie's eventual return to his Christian roots, this book brings you bang up to date in revealing detail. Riveting and controversial, 'Sting In The Tale' dramatically lifts the lid on the many skeletons stashed in the W.A.S.P. closet."
