“I had the pleasure of reading the manuscript of The story of DEATH it was an exhilarating time machine. This book not only took me on the journey of the DEATH band but also, pleasured my memories of historical events that took place when I was a child. This book will tap into your emotions and have you laughing, crying, thinking and relishing on memories long gone.” – Cheryl Jean-Philippe
“This manuscript will motivate you, give you a blast into the past, and give you an insight into what is like to be apart of a diligent group of young men who had a focus and followed it as a unified family. It is like a 101 book of life but of the Hackney life. Being a young manager of the DEATH band and having the opportunity not only to be a part of their incredible present, but privileged to get a windowed view glimpse of their past through this powerful book, I also take pleasure with the Hackney brothers in making new memories.” – Michael Lee Alston, Jr.
“Already an avid fan of DEATH when I was introduced to the Rockumentary last year, Bobby Hackney’s book elaborates on the behind the scenes story of the band and the evolution of the punk rock genre they created forty years ago. A MUST READ for any music lover and pop culture fanatic!” – Heather N. West
