Zakk Wylde To Write Forward to Randy Rhodes Biography

(Gibson) Author Joel McIver, whose previous books include Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Holy Rock & Rollers: The Story of Kings of Leon, will deliver two new hard rock bios for the coming year. On his website, McIver announced the 2011 release of Crazy Train: The High Life and Tragic Death of Randy Rhoads and Overkill: The True Story of Mot�rhead.

Crazy Train will concentrate on the impact of Rhoads' all-too-brief career on subsequent generations of players, including interviews with Tom Morello, Annihilator's Jeff Waters, Exodus' Gary Holt and several others. The book will also feature a foreword by Zakk Wylde.

"When Joel asked me to write the foreword for this book about Randy, I was beyond honored," said Wylde. "I figured it was the least I could do, considering how much impact Randy has had on my life." - more on this story
