About the Book

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. Author Scott McKenzie set off to make contact with the legendary metal superstars he worshipped in his rural Kentucky youth—men like George Lynch of Dokken, Glen Tipton of Judas Priest, and Ace Frehley of KISS—hoping to gain wisdom and a better understanding of the electric guitar mystique. 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 Mötley Crüe, Guns ’N’ Roses, or Black Sabbath song reach out from the speakers and grab them by the ears.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

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

“Power Chord captures the essence of why we become lifetime devotees to our rock gods.” - Rudy Sarzo, bass player for Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, & Dio

“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
