If given a second chance, a lot of us would choose the path of rockstardom instead of our current, non-glamorous cerebral professions that pay the bills now. The rock stars of the 1980’s had it all; fame, fortune, fun, and fabulous hair. Trends like the glam rock tend to return as retro. Since there’s a healthy chance that Hair Metal could be born again, let’s get a head start by studying this book that’s freshly new to bookstore shelves. It’s called Steel Rainbow: The Legendary Underground Guide to Becoming an ’80s Rock Star.
Nearly coinciding with the debut of the film “Rock of Ages,” “Steel Rainbow” is ready to grace your glass-top coffee tables. Perhaps it’s the perfect time to reawaken the rock stars we have buried deep within. We’ve already abandoned the dream of forming a profitable band, got rid of the Aqua Net, stopped wearing the tattered Metallica t-shirts, and graduated from college so that we could land decent jobs. But are we any happier?
