In Jersey Metal Volume One (Revised Edition) Frank White and Alan Tecchio took their original book and amped it up with even more stories, band flyers and an improved layout. Missing are the magazine ads that were in the first version since the source who originally offered their use, later reneged on that. 


Jersey Metal Volume One (Revised Edition) sees Frank and Alan teaming up to offer a unique, autobiographical perspective on NJ's Heavy Metal music history through photos, interviews and band bios. The book covers the early years from 1969 to 1986. Jersey Metal Volume One (Revised Edition)  focuses not just on artists and bands from the Garden State but also world-wide acts, local original, cover as well as tribute bands that played in NJ. There is also respect paid to the venues these groups frequented, the radio stations, record companies, stores and the Jersey shore that all helped grow New Jersey's wild Heavy Metal scene.
