This episode’s guest is author Steven Blush. His book American Hairmetal: Can’t Get Enough has just been released. This is an expanded edition of the book originally released by Feral House in 2006.

Interest in hair metal is as strong as it was over three decades ago. In the summer of 2022 Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard went out on a stadium tour with Poison, and Joan Jett as supporting acts. The tour brought in $173.5 million, making it the highest-grossing tour of either band’s career. In 2016, Guns N’ Roses launched their Not In This Lifetime...Tour. The tour was 2016's highest-earning per-city global concert tour and the fourth-highest-grossing overall that year. In 2017, the tour ranked as the second highest-grossing worldwide tour and the band continued to bring in huge numbers through 2023. 

American Hairmetal: Can’t Get Enough features hundreds of photographs of bands including Poison, Cinderella, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Ratt, and Stryper. Wild quotes from the major players of the era including David Lee Roth, Jon Bon Jovi, Sebastian Bach, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Bret Michaels, Don Dokken, and many of the era’s unsung heroes. This expanded edition includes more photos, more quotes, and a new introduction by Chip Z’Nuff of Enuff Z’Nuff and an interview with Rik Fox of WASP. Steven Blush is an author, journalist, and filmmaker who is best known for his 2006 book American Hardcore and the movie of the same name. He’s the founder of Seconds magazine and has written articles for many magazines including Vice, SPIN, Kerrang! and the Village Voice.
