Mike Edison will be gracing us with his incredible story telling abilities between bands!

He has contributed to numerous magazines and websites including Spin, The Daily Beast, and the New York Press, for whom he covers classical music and professional wrestling.

He currently is releasing his new book "Dirty, Dirty" set to drop in October, so there will be copies available... and I bet he would be kind enough to sign a few too.
