I can't WAIT to get my copy....and I'm not even a Metallica fan! But I am a fan of the work by Mr. Bill Hale! Having known Bill for well over 25 years (pushing 30 almost...yikes)and knowing his work....let's just say "Bill, you da man!" Your photos are pure art! What an eye! Your live shots capture every ounce of manic power...every drop of blood, sweat and tears. Your band portraits are the aces, mate! One of the best photographers on the scene! Proud and honored to call you friend.
