"What a great read about, really, a fascinating time for our genre, even if it was a tough time for a lot of longhairs, especially those who were on top of the world just a few years before the decade in question began." [9 out of 10 rating] --BraveWords
"This serves as an almanac of a timeline that paints such a clear picture of the changing of the guard in music. Loved it!!! --Keith Roth, Ozzy's Boneyard
"Greg Prato's book takes you back and puts you right in the music scene of the time. Told through the words of the musicians who were there every step of the way, if you were there at the time, you'll be brought right back in time...if you weren't there at the time, you'll learn EXACTLY what went down!" --Mike Portnoy, original Dream Theater drummer
"The story is always best when told by those who were actually there. This book brought back so many great memories from friends and colleagues who've traveled the long road of success together." --David Ellefson, Megadeth bassist
"A great read for any fan of metal especially if you want an insider's look behind the scenes at metal's 'lost' decade." --Bruce Kulick, Kiss guitarist (1984-1996)
"Greg Prato takes you back to the Crüe and Kiss, dudes trading in their make up and mirrors for a dirty flannel, stomping out the competition, and standing the test of time. Is your band a survivor??? Only time will tell...until then, pick up this book and enjoy a glimpse into the past! A great read capturing times in music that we may never see again. --Tim Williams, Vision of Disorder/Bloodsimple singer
