COMING IN 2022

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.

 

“Here was the proud, defiant underbelly of rock: 19 bands spread over 10 hours in an indoor furnace, not one of them a friend of commercial radio or MTV. Yet in this world, such outsider status is the ultimate credibility enhancer. ‘It's only about two things in this band: You and us,’ howled singer Corey Taylor of headliners Slipknot.”

- Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune, July 28, 2000
