About the Author
The author of FORK IN THE ROAD – The Culmination of Angst – DeSoto has been writing lyrics and guitar riffs for 20+ years. With a heavy hand and a heavy heart he has written hundreds of songs in the heavy metal genre based on real life experiences and how he views this unstable world we all share. His personal struggles, battles, and triumphs are the basis of what makes his lyrical writing style stand out.
Why I wrote this – I am at the best time in my life now, and wanted to go back through all of my chicken scratch lyrics that I had doodled down on dozens of note pads over the past 20+ years when I was at my worst, and see how much I have grown and matured and possibly find those that can identify with my lyrics and appreciate a writing style such as mine, as no one writes lyrics or riffs like me especially in today’s mainstream music. This is the first of probably three books I will compile my lyrics in. I have several hundred songs I have written over the years.
Who will read this – Lovers of poetry, and free thinkers will enjoy this book. It is a pretty raw fly on the walls view of what I was going through and also what I perceived to see going on around me. I use to pride myself and actually boast that I write heavy lyrics with no Tourette’s! People with a higher IQ appreciate this about my style even if they don’t necessarily “get” or agree with my lyrics.
