I really enjoyed this book. Not only does it show how Randy became an icon, it also shows us Randy the man. With interviews from the people who knew him best, the author really brings Randy to life, showing his love of teaching to showing Randy's concern about leaving Quiet Riot, his time with Ozzy, how he loved being home and his plans for the future which sadly never came to pass.

In my opinion, Randy Rhoads is the greatest guitarist who ever lived. I was given this book as a birthday present from a close friend. I loved it. It's filled with interviews from the people who knew Randy best. Randy changed the way heavy metal guitarists play with his unique style and flawless delivery. Randy's life may have been cut short but he will live on through his music forever.
Awesome book. Different from any other books I've read about Randy. This book had some great technical parts. People spoke in detail about Randy's guitar solos on various different songs. Some things I already new, some I didn't. I went back and listened to Mr Crowley and Crazy Train and heard new things. That was really cool since I've been listening to those songs for decades.
a book with the many tales of Randy Rhoads and his tragically ending. Not too much new here, just a great collection and reminder of who Randy Rhoads was - a great guitarist a great person a great influence basically just great any way possible.
