Apart from working on a new Ziltoid album, and releasing the project Casualties Of Cool album, Devin Townsend is also working on a book! With the title Only Half There and to be published by Rocket 88, a website was created to determine how much interest there is for such a book. You can register or just check it out here and the website offers some more information on what the book is about. The more interest there is, the sooner the book can become a reality. Coming from Devin Townsend, you know that at least it is going to be entertaining.

Book description: "With this book I really want to discuss music, my creative process, the connection between my personal development and how my career and music has been lived, and I want to do it frankly and in detail. I want to offer up my experiences - positive and negative - so that it might help other people to follow their muse and get to do what they dream about. I want to contrast what people assume this life and work is based on, with the reality. It's so easy to get lost in addiction, accolades and criticisms instead of creating music, but essentially that is the healthiest thing in the world: going where the music takes you is so important. This book is part manual and part diary. It's a travelogue, a songbook, a celebration, elucidation and condemnation; it's my story, told by me, for you. If you want it..."

Here are some quotes from musicians who have worked with Devin. Ihsahn: "Devin's talents as a guitar player, vocalist, songwriter and producer are undeniable, but mostly I admire how he approaches all his different projects with such passion and honesty. I've had the privilege to work with him on a few occasions and hope this book will capture his energetic and positive personality. He's had a long and exciting career so far, so this should be a good read."

Anneke Van Giersbergen: "Obviously a book about Devin Townsend will be a very interesting read. He is one of the most colourful and eclectic musicians out there. His life and his music inspires me very much and I'm proud to call him my friend. I definitely want to have this book on my coffee table!"

Would you be interested in the book?

Hmm? Would anyone be interested in a book about one of the most celebrated minds in the metal scene, which goes into great details of the writing processes behind one of the most varied-but-celebrated discographies out there?

I wonder...
