Review by Jeff Maki

Can we end the debate now? Rock ‘n’ roll will never die. Metal will never die. Didn’t anybody listen to Neil Young? Didn’t anybody listen to Ronnie James Dio? If that isn’t enough, I have further proof in the 26,000 fans who attended the sold-out 2015 Rock Allegiance festival at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. Featuring living legends Rob Zombie, Korn and Godsmack, current rock bands carrying the torch like Five Finger Death Punch and Bring Me the Horizon, along with a lineup of other mainstays and up-and-coming bands, Rock Allegiance was a nonstop day celebrating rock and metal.

Rock stardom wasn’t quite what Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer thought it would be. While the band was on a quick ascent to the top of the metal mountain, he was descending into a personal of drugs and alcohol. Partying became his life, taking over so much that he dreaded his time onstage doing the only job he had ever wanted. It took a trip close to the edge for Spencer to decide to turn his life around and get the help he needed. Part of his therapy included putting his story on paper, a story that recently was published in his book, Death Punch’d: Surviving Fiver Finger Death Punch’s Metal Mayhem. Spencer pulls no punches and takes himself to task more than anyone else as he details what led him to where he is today. Now approaching three years of sobriety, he’s healthy and focused as Death Punch, supporting its two 2013 releases (The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell volumes one and two), gears up for a co-headlining tour with Volbeat and looks ahead to its next album. Live Metal’s Greg Maki caught up with Spencer to talk about the book, his sobriety, the tour and more. (more…)
