FEATURING A FOREWORD BY COREY TAYLOR OF SLIPKNOT
For lack of a better term, Lou Brutus is a “Professional Music Fan.” He lives the dream of millions by traveling the Earth attending concerts and interviewing rock stars. He’s spent his life blasting tunes on the radio, becoming the first to play all of your favorite bands, and gaining access to literally thousands of music events. There is no one in the media who has seen more shows or conducted more on-site interviews than Lou.
Sonic Warrior is a collection of insane-but-true stories from the career of Rock Radio legend Lou Brutus. Each chapter is a separate tale that careens around his 40+ years of covering concerts, interviewing music’s biggest stars, and influencing generations of radio listeners. Starting with the first show he attended (Black Sabbath at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in December 1976, where he threw up Boone’s Farm Strawberry Wine all over his older sister’s boyfriend) and continuing to the present day (where he doesn’t puke as much).
