Greg Prato, the master of the oral narrative, is back with an illuminating and insightful look into the history of Rainbow. Led by Ritchie Blackmore-- long considered to be one of the most gifted guitarists in rock and at the same time one of the genre's most difficult with which to deal--Rainbow was a band continually on the cusp of huge success but never quite attaining it.

The reasons why are included inside these pages as more than 30 musicians, journalists, and people close to the band are interviewed by Prato and reveal all there is to know about the group. Included here are recent interviews with ex-band members including Tony Carey, Chuck Burgi, David Rosenthal, Greg Smith, Joe Lynn Turner, and others. Additionally, outside musicians such as Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, Dio guitarist Craig Goldy, and former Judas Priest singer Tim "Ripper" Owens provide clues and unravel the mysteries of Blackmore and his band.

These various narratives tell the tale of how the band formed, all the exits and entrances of various members and why the music was so special. A must-have book for any fan of Ritchie Blackmore and Rainbow.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2016
