Randal grew up in Northern California on a diet of iceberg lettuce, tangerines, and steak ranchero. After a trip to the UK during high school, he traded in his Cheap Trick slider shirts for Two-Tone inspired garb, and thereby increased the likelihood of being pummeled by the Van Halen-loving football players.

Randal's fondest concert memories include a Firehose gig, where his roommate fell to the floor of the mosh pit and a towering skinhead immediately snatched him up and provided him a piggyback tour through the pit for the rest of the song. Seeing Stevie Wonder sing a few bars at a three-hour P-Funk All-Stars sweat fest made a lasting impression. A recent show by Lucius left him a-gog.

Beyond his award-winning book on The Clash (PM Press), Randal's written essays on The Ramones, illegal file-sharing, The Pipettes, Bruce Springsteen, and Hamell on Trial. He presently lives in Northeast Ohio and serves as the mind and muscle behind Cadence Editorial Services.
