The session musicians who are responsible for 80% of the records released in the U.S., finally come out of the shadows and stand proudly in the limelight. Between breathless solos and groovy beats, find out how anthems such as Michael Jackson’s "Beat It" were really created, learn for the first time what Ozzy Osbourne and his musicians went through after the death of the hugely important Randy Rhoads, and travel back to the days after the tragic death of Metallica’s legendary Cliff Burton. Starring Alice Cooper, Jason Newsted, Pink, Steve Vai, Rob Zombie etc.
