Smash Mouth to Publish a Cookbook

Seapoint Books will be publishing a cookbook by the rock band Smash Mouth. Smash Mouth: Recipes from the Road: a Rock ‘n’ Roll Cookbook hits bookstores on October 16th.

The book contains candid photos, road trip stories from the band (pictured, via) and celebrity guest recipes. The list of participants include Food Network star Guy Fieri, rock vocalist Sammy Hagar (of Van Halen fame), retired NFL player Jerome Bettis and award-winning chef Michael Symon.
