Roxx Productions has issued the following press release regarding the recently published biography of late OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Randy Rhoads:
"Once in a while a great project comes along our desks, a project that we just want to help spread the word about or get out to the public and to the fans. That project recently came to us here at Roxx Productions in the form of a book, a biography of a legend.
"On December 6, 2006 we mark what would have been the 50th Birthday of a true guitar hero and legend. That legend is Randy Rhoads! Roxx Productions in association with Empire 4 is bringing you the limited edition biography of Randy Rhoads entitled 'Randy Rhoads – A Life'.
"Throughout the years many people have wondered and looked for a biography on their guitar hero and the legend that was and is Randy Rhoads! That book never transpired for many reasons, some good, some not so good. Whatever the reason, there has not been a successful publication on the life and times of Randy Rhoads, until now.
"The author of this book, David A Bene, as well as many others has asked that exact question, 'Why has there not been a good biography on the man we all love?' Well, David put pen to paper and began to collect information from many sources and eventually pieced it all together to get the book we have before us, 'Randy Rhoads – A Life'.
"While it is not an officially authorized biography, it comes to us with many contributions from those closest to Randy. Some of these sources include Kevin DuBrow, Kelly Garni and Bob Daisley, just to name a few.
"When you read this book you will get to know the man that became a legend to millions of faithful fans, and while it paints a picture that may not be as angelic as most would like to think, it paints a real picture of a man that would come out of a world that we all have known at one level or another to become the legend that we have today!
"This book was self-published and only 300 initial copies have been pressed as it has been used as a marketing tool to seek a publishing deal. 150 copies are gone and we have 150 copies left that we are making available to the public for a limited time."
