The Rock N Roll Archaeology Project

Digging into Music, Culture & Technology

Why Archaeology? Because we intend to dig. This is an excavation and exploration of Rock N Roll. We start by asking: how does Rock N Roll affect the larger society, and how does the larger society affect Rock N Roll? We set a frame for our discussion: the years 1945 to 1995.

Rock N Roll Librarian Reads Metallica: Nothing Else Matters - The Graphic Novel

Welcome back to the the Rock N Roll Librarian! This is the show where the Rock N Roll Archaeology Project dives into a Rock N Roll book with our own real librarian who rocks - Shelley Sorenson. Shelley has been a librarian for 33 years, a music fan longer and a singer/guitarist and will provide some great insight as she co-hosts each episode with the host of The Rock N Roll Archaeology Project, Christian Swain.

This week Shelley and Christian discuss Metallica: Nothing Else Matters The Graphic Novel. Brian Williamson’s stunning artwork and Jim McCarthy’s incisive script perfectly capture the rollercoaster tale of Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield, Cliff Burton, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo and the many others who have passed through the Metallica story. Published by Overlook-Omnibus on October 14, 2014.
