Featuring a foreword by Glen Benton of Deicide, the book takes the reader in reverse order from No. 100 to No. 1 - the greatest metal guitarist of all time!
Joel based his selection on the technical ability and historical significance of each player. All generations of metal are covered in the book, with the oldest guitarist aged 61 and the youngest a mere 26!
"The 100 guys I've included are pure metal," says Joel, "there's no-one taken from the hard rock world, so as much as I respect Randy Rhoads, Angus Young, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, Ritchie Blackmore and the rest of the rock shredders, they'll have to wait for another book!"
The book can be ordered via Amazon.co.uk.
