When Scott McKenzie was a young man, he thought he saw God . . . The deity was all in black with knee-high silver boots, a patent-leather breastplate, and full face makeup, clutching a beautiful, custom Les Paul guitar. Ace Frehley, lead guitarist for the rock group KISS, wasn't God-but hearing his piercing, shrieking, screaming, outrageous guitar solos was a transcendent spiritual experience for a boy from rural Kentucky, making him feel uplifted, a witness to a higher power. Two decades later, a grown-up Scott McKenzie vowed to meet Ace Frehley in the flesh-as well as the other gods and demigods who have held divine power over a generation of worshipful metal fans: legendary guitar champions like Glenn Tipton of Judas Priest and Phil Collen of Def Leppard, hallowed names like Steve Vai, Warren DeMartini, and John 5. Power Chord is a chronicle of Scott McKenzie's epic quest to stand in the presence of metal greatness-to meet his omnipotent guitar gods face-to-face and get them to divulge their otherworldly secret.
