Tony Palermo

Tony Palermo is the drummer of my favorite band, Papa Roach. Papa Roach exploded in 2000 with their first major-label release, the triple-platinum album Infest. "Last Resort" became a number one single on the Alternative Rock chart. The band was nominated for a Grammy in 2001 for Best New Artist. Other Papa Roach hits through the years include "Getting Away With Murder," "Forever," "To Be Loved," "Lifeline," and "Kick in the Teeth." Papa Roach released their 7th studio album The Connection last year that includes "Still Swingin'" and "Where Did the Angels Go."

Check out Papa Roach on the Carnival of Madness tour. I've seen 100+ bands live, and they are the most energetic, amazing live band I've ever seen. I'll see them for the 10th time next month!

What is Tony Palermo reading?

Tony recently tweeted, "Currently reading Hemingway's For Whom The Bell Tolls. It's a very slow read though."

I also asked Tony what his favorite book was.

His answer: The Dirt by Motley Crue.

Indeed a crazy, entertaining read!

Thanks, Tony! You can find out more about Papa Roach at www.paparoach.com and follow Tony on Twitter.

Here's me and the band. :)

Check out Papa Roach's latest single, "Leader of the Broken Hearts."

most of Hemingway's books are slow reads :)

I always find it interesting when a rocker is reading a classic. :)

I guess you've got to read something on the tour bus...

Kind of an odd choice for favorite book (unless they're his favorite band, I guess).

I have a hard time with naming a favorite anything anyway, as I tend to think of what was most recent.

BELL TOLLS is wonderful, but it IS easy to put down, you know...definitely not a doughnut of a book.
