About the Author

Glenn Hughes is a true original whose music blends hard rock, soul, and funk. Once described by Stevie Wonder as his favourite white singer, he achieved international fame with Deep Purple, and has since collaborated with artists including Tony Iommi, The KLF, and members of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. He formed his new group, Black Country Communion, in 2010.

Joel McIver is the bestselling author of Justice for All: The Truth About Metallica which has been translated into 9 languages. He has written for Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, and he is the occasional guest on BBC. He is currently the editor of Bass Guitar magazine. Classic Rock magazine has called him "by some distance Britain's most prolific hard rock/metal author." He wrote the official biography of the world's biggest death metal band, Cannibal Corpse and co-wrote Megadeath's bio from bass player David Ellefson.
