Enhanced by a rich collection of Ron Sobol‘s evocative photographs, rare video footage and moving personal memories, coupled with a raft of Kevin DuBrow‘s original memorabilia, RANDY RHOADS: The QUIET RIOT Years is the captivating story of Quiet Riot’s near-impossible journey to superstardom, a story that first began on March 3, 1975 with legendary guitar icon Randy Rhoads in tow. Rocked by adversity at every turn, refusing to give up, resolute that it was their way or the highway, Quiet Riot truly epitomize the word survivor, by eventually becoming one of the most popular bands in heavy metal history.
Randy Rhoads: The Quiet Riot Years is published by Red Match Productions, with exclusive distribution through Guitar World. As a bonus, this book comes with a 90-minute DVD documentary of the Quiet Riot years with Randy, containing interview footage telling the story of the band. The DVD will also feature the song ‘Hymn 11’ from French-Algerian artist Pierre Bensusan, globally known as the Mozart of Guitar, taken from his Altiplatos album.
