Jesse James's memoir doesn't hit shelves until May 3, but the newly minted author couldn't wait any longer to unleash the cover art. To match the book's title, "American Outlaw," Jesse went with an old west theme, complete with a photo of him holding his own .44 Magnum revolver on the back. "[I didn't want] some variation of a bad prom photo [or] serious Thinker pose like most book jackets show," he tells People. "I just wanted something different. I wasn't going to mail it in." That's all well and good, Jesse, but it's what's written on the inside that counts.
