Brace yourself for a roller coaster thrill ride as you join the Tattoo the Earth 2000 summer tour of America, the most insane tour ever inflicted on a continent. Featuring twenty of metal’s biggest bands, including Metallica, Slipknot, and Slayer, plus Filip Leu, Sean Vasquez, and the world’s best tattoo artists, these renegade outsiders pissed off all the wrong music business heavyweights, but left delirious inked fans in their wake.


Caravan of Pain is a rip-roaring music business underdog tale: compelling, hysterical, and cautionary. Its unique peek inside the worlds of music festivals, metal, and tattooing gives the reader a front row seat to a watershed time in our culture at the turn of the millennium. Told with candor and humor by the tour’s creator Scott Alderman, and illustrated with memorabilia and never-before- seen photos, Caravan of Pain is a story of inspiration, persistence, and the dark side of following a dream.

Set against a backdrop of New York City in the grungy, glittering 1980s, Get Off is a memoir about desperate living, hidden promise, double lives, and the danger of getting too much too soon. This eloquent, entertaining, sometimes absurdly hilarious book is a tale of how an anxious theater nerd from Long Island created and ultimately emerged from a hell of his own making. Written as a testament for his young son, Scott Alderman's account of his wasted youth and hard-earned manhood will resonate with and inspire anyone who has been lost and struggled to find their way back.


"This is the voice of a natch'l born raconteur with the courage to venture to the darkest spaces of the human heart with uncanny compassion and deep honesty."

- Oliver Trager, Author of Dig Infinity!


"The writing has incredible momentum and sustained movement, really conveying the velocity and chaos of the experiences; there's a real feeling of life happening." 

- Vivian Heller, Author of City Beneath Us
