Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SEPULTURA) is working on his autobiography for release in 2012. The book is being written by British rock author Joel McIver, whose 20 books to date include "Justice for All: The Truth About Metallica", "Crazy Train: The High Life And Tragic Death Of Randy Rhoads", "Glenn Hughes: The Autobiography", "To Live Is To Die: The Life And Death Of Metallica's Cliff Burton", "Overkill: The Untold Story Of Motrhead", "The Bloody Reign Of Slayer" and "Unleashed: The Story Of Tool". The book's foreword will be written by Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, ex-NIRVANA), who was' "really thrilled" to do it, Max said during a November 3, 2011 interview with "Metal Zone" host Nikki Blakk of the San Francisco, California radio station 107.7 The Bone. "Dave's always been a great guy," Cavalera added. "He used to come to see SEPULTURA play in Seattle every time we played; even after NIRVANA got big, he would still come and see us playin little clubs." Among fellow musicians who are being interviewed for Max's autobiography are Ozzy Osbourne and Chino Moreno of the DEFTONES.When asked about the persistent rumors of a reunion of SEPULTURA's classic lineup, Max said, "I wanted to do it, and [at one point] I was trying to convince Igor [former SEPULTURA drummer and Max's brother] to do it, [but] Igor kind of [pulled] me aside and said, 'The reunion I wanted to make was with you, and we've done that already [in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY], so I'm good with that. Why can't you just be happy with that, too?' And I told him a lot of fans wanted to see the original SEPULTURA reunion. It would have been a cool reunion. So, yeah, it's not in my hands anymore. He doesn't wanna do it, so I don't wanna bug him; he doesn't feel comfortable. I don't know what [SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser and bassist Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr.] think; I don't follow what they're doing, I have no idea what's up in that [camp]. So I just keep busy with my stuff, and I've got plenty CAVALERA and SOULFLY and all this other stuff going on. We just have to wait and see. Maybe it will happen. If it does, I'm sure it will be for the right reasons. But it's something that nobody knows. At this moment, it's a complete 'maybe' just a big 'maybe.'"
