Power Chord is the story of one man's epic pilgrimage to gain rock enlightenment from the gods and guitar heroes of the Golden Age of heavy metal.

The result is a veritable treasure trove of enthralling behind-the-scenes stories and "where are they now" revelations that will delight anyone who has ever felt a Motley Crue, Guns 'N' Roses, or Black Sabbath song reach out from the speakers and grab them by the ears.

"A highly entertaining tale about heroism, dreams, debauchery, unnecessary umlauts and loud, loud music."--A. J. Jacobs

"Scott McKenzie captures why we all became obsessed with the electric guitar. There was something that spoke to us. The look, the sound, and the whole embodiment of the electric guitar took us to another world. Put down your guitar and read POWER CHORD!"--Stacey Blades of L.A. Guns
