In this one-of-a-kind book, author Jackie Kajzer, famous internationally as "Full Metal Jackie," collects insights from your favorite rock stars about the creative process behind the most influential metal songs of the '80s. The interviews go well beyond the already familiar stories and anecdotes, as Jackie gathers thoughts from heavy metal artists and songwriters about the cultural and social impact the songs had when they were released, as well as the continued validity and influence these songs hold today. So cue up the album tracks, print out the lyrics, and listen while you read the pages that follow. You'll never hear these songs the same way again.


  • The author is a well recognized, longtime expert of the genre.
  • Provides a unique perspective and greater insight than other books on heavy metal, including song relevance in a contemporary music context.
  • Includes newly acquired insight from the songwriters, rather than simply providing repackaged archived interview quotes.
