New FAITH NO MORE And MR. BUNGLE Companion Book

November 25th, 2013

bookcover

Despite being listed as an influence on countless notable bands, there has never
been a book that tells the complete story of both Faith No More and Mr. Bungle.
Until now. Author/journalist Greg Prato’s tenth book overall, ‘The Faith No More
& Mr. Bungle Companion,’ serves as both a career overview and analyzation of
both bands – tracing their ups and downs, uncovering quite a few unheard or
uncommon tales, and of course, telling the stories behind such classic albums as
‘The Real Thing,’ ‘Angel Dust,’ ‘Disco Volante,’ and ‘California.’

And many members of today’s top rock bands offer up opinions and memories of
Faith No More and Mr. Bungle exclusively for this book, including Jason Newsted
(Newsted/ex-Metallica), Max Cavalera (Soulfly/ex-Sepultura), Kim Thayil
(Soundgarden), Devin Townsend (Devin Townsend Project/ex-Strapping Young Lad),
Ville Valo (HIM), Johnny Christ (Avenged Sevenfold), Gilby Clarke (ex-Guns N’
Roses), Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria), Angelo Moore (Fishbone), John Garcia
(Vista Chino/ex-Kyuss), Wes Borland (Black Light Burns/Limp Bizkit), Everlast
(House of Pain/solo artist), Mike Fleischmann (Vision of Disorder), Mitts
(Madball), and Jeff Walker (Carcass).

Prato writes for Rolling Stone, and has penned such popular and critically
acclaimed music book titles as ‘Grunge is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock
Music,’ ‘A Devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on the Other: The Story of Shannon
Hoon and Blind Melon,’ ‘The Eric Carr Story,’ ‘Too High to Die: Meet the Meat
Puppets,’ and ‘MTV Ruled the World: The Early Years of Music Video,’ among
others. He is also a long-time fan of both bands – having interviewed every
single Faith No More member who appeared on record over the years (of which
excerpts from these interviews are included in this book), and having witnessed
countless FNM and Bungle performances over the years.

Available as both a paperback version [$14.99, 210 pages] and a Kindle download
[$6.99, 189 pages], ‘The Faith No More & Mr. Bungle Companion’ helps put it all
into perspective for fans of both bands.

Faith No More called it quits in 1998 after the ALBUM OF THE YEAR had seen the light of day and the tours were completed. Since then it has been speculated about the possible return or comeback for years and even the band members had ruled out the whole reunion thing several times. Singer Mike Patton was always asked in several interviews about a possible return, but he rather focused on his own bands Fantomas, Mr. Bungle, and Tomahawk etc. than teaming up with the old band members. However, some things should remain unchanged and untouched, but it is just amazing to see how some minds can change after all and Faith No More truly returned to the limelight.
