It's an extremely openhearted and revealing story of all the ups and downs a crazy rock n´ rollercoaster life at 'Tivoli Shaw'. Often draped in cynical sarcasm, awkward truths and black humor.

The multi-talented Snowy Shaw has been called a "Worldwide Underground Superstar". After more than 30 years of touring the world he has earned himself a rock solid reputation as one of the most hardworking, multifaceted 'art-ist' with loads of groundbreaking creativity and integrity. In 2018, his highly acclaimed solo debut, ‘White Is the New Black,’ got nothing but absolutely top notch reviews worldwide, and was nominated “Best Rock/Metal Album of the Year” in no less than 5 countries. ‘The Book of Heavy Metal’ will be available as a limited deluxe edition hardback heavy brick of 464 pages, beautifully designed and decorated with loads of memorabilia and tons of never before seen footage from his private collection. Autographed, numbered with a personal dedication to YOU!

The book’s foreword is by Shaw’s longtime friend, youth idol and mentor Mikkey Dee (Motörhead, King Diamond, Scorpions). According to him, like too many rock biographies in the last few decades, this is not the typical romanticized Cinderella story, this is the real deal. A must read! On Saturday, July 25th Shaw will have an online official book release party from his headquarters in Sweden (he calls the HellHaus). That date is special because it is also his birthday! Shaw will be conducting online signings to people who have pre-ordered the book and also a live performance of a few songs, will read some passages, and tell stories. The event will be live streamed on Facebook from 7:00-9:00 P.M UTC and here is the event page link: Read all about it - in ‘The Book Of Heavy Metal.’ FOR MORE INFORMATION, AND TO ORDER THE BOOK, PLEASE VISIT: (Europe, etc.) (USA) (You Tube Channel)
