Randy Blythe: Dark Days (book review)

What a riveting story by one of the best heavy metal singers ever (in my opinion). But this not only the story about Randy’s prison time, but an inspirational book to any alcoholic or drug addict out there.

Randy has always had a unique way of expressing himself, both through his music and the way he does interviews. He is a man of his word and he kept it by going back to the Czech Republic even though he was advised by many people not to go. That right there alone shows what a great standup person he is.

In this memoir, Randy of course talks about his 37 days in prison (i think we all knew he would eventually write a book about that, just not this soon). The horrible living conditions, the once every few days showers, and showering with inmates who had tuberculosis and venereal diseases. He also talks about his annoying cell mate and some of the shady characters that he came across during rec time.

I think there is also some great advice for anyone who is looking to get sober or just make a better living period. There are a couple of great chapter that anyone (wether you like Randy or LoG) could benefit from.

If you would like an inspirational read then look no further. Randy has an exceptiomal writing style that is easy to follow and he doesnt bullshit around. He tells it like he sees it!
