(Stephen) King of Metal: His Influence on Hard Music!
10/1/2020 by Frank Hill

Stephen King is one of the most prolific writers of our modern time with over 350 million copies sold from the 67 novels and books he's published of contemporary horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy.
