9780061966552: Rock Connections: The Complete Family Tree of Rock 'n' Roll

Who put the bop in the bop-she-bop-she-bop? In Rock Connections: The Complete Family Tree of Rock ‘n' Roll, music writers Robert Dimery and Bruno MacDonald (co-authors of 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die and Rock & Roll Heaven) deliver a dynamic genealogy of sound, showing the line-ups and telling the stories of rock and pop's most seminal groups. Dimery and MacDonald devote special sections to landmark events, groundbreaking labels, and game-changing producers. Lavishly illustrated with both full-color photography and classic black-and-white images by legendary rock photographer Mick Rock—whose camera has captured everyone from David Bowie to Lou Reed to the Killers—Rock Connections will make music history come alive for Woodstock veterans, Bonnaroo regulars, and everyone in between.

From the Back Cover:

The story of any great band includes walk-on parts by scores of musicians who left the scene before fame and fortune came calling. All diehard fans love to trace the connections and lineups of their favorite bands, including the unexpected lucky breaks, the name changes, and all the missed chances before they hit the big time. Rock Connections brings you the fascinating histories, behind-the-scenes secrets, and encapsulated biographies of the biggest names in music from the last fifty years. From Elvis Presley and The Rolling Stones to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Coldplay, the evolution of the most important acts is traced. You'll also find a grab bag of fascinating extras, including features on key record labels, producers, clubs, and festivals, along with the lowdown on the bands who made them great. All this, plus enough entertaining trivia to satisfy even the most hardcore fan. Want to find out how the band you love came to be? Then use your Rock Connections.
