New Jersey native, Danny Marianino, lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with his wife Krista and their three wacky dogs. He authored his first book, Don't Ever Punch a Rockstar: A Collection of Hate Mail and Other Crazy Rumors, in 2012. Currently, Danny is finishing up his next book due out in March of 2015.
Danny is also a horror programmer for both the Phoenix Film Festival and The International Horror and Sci-Fi Festival and he owned the always entertaining website, I Can Smell Your Brains.com, with his good buddy Brandon Kinchen. While it's painfully obvious he has an affinity for all things cinema, Danny has a huge bobble head collection, is addicted to buying old MAD Magazines, and avidly collects horror magazines.
While he often spends his evenings glued to The El Rey Network, changing the order on his Netflix queue, or barbecuing with friends, he also has a dude room dedicated to an overwhelming amount of nonsense. The multifaceted Marianino is more than just a movie buff, though, as he has had a well-chronicled music career. Danny has sang and played guitar in a number of punk bands and released albums worldwide. Some would call him a Renaissance man, but this king of movies, music, and barbecue is just a down-to-earth, very cool guy.

Don't Ever Punch a Rockstar: A Collection of Hate Mail And Other Crazy Rumors
Documenting Danny Marianino's days as a metalhead from childhood into adulthood, Don't Ever Punch a Rockstar somehow rationalizes playing in a few hardcore/punk bands, touring, fighting, drinking, internet bullying, celebrity encounters, satanic curses, house fires, harassment and collecting an immeasurable amount of hate mail from some of the most illiterate human beings the world has to offer.
