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.
