The Book of Rock: From the 1950s to Today by Philip Dodd

Now in an easy-to-handle format, this new edition of The Book of Rock is fully updated with fantastic new, varied and talented acts from across the musical spectrum. In the most comprehensive encyclopedia of rock and roll to date, guitar heroes rub shoulders with tortured geniuses, and the flamboyant masters of showmanship receive the same treatment as reclusive poets. Showcasing a gallery of 500 saints, sinners, and martyrs of rock history, The Book of Rock provides a fresh, provocative guide to the worlds most influential singers and musicians. Each artist is given equal deference -- 500 pages, 500 defining photographs, 500 defining quotes, with text that highlights their achievements and their influence, along with essential biographical information, critical comments from the artists themselves or fellow musicians, and a selected discography. The Book of Rock pays tribute to the artists that imposed an indelible mark on the half-century of musical extravaganza we call rock and roll. Selections include Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Dead Kennedys, Eurythmics, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Gabriel, Buddy Holly, INXS, Nirvana, Queen, Ramones, U2, The Verve, The Who, X, ZZ Top, Eminem, The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Streets, The Dandy Warhols, Shakira, Anastasia, Shania Twain, OutKast and Coldplay.
