Lyrical genius can touch an emotional nerve—and so can the pages of The Book of Rock. 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 world’s 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, Beastie Boys, Eric Clapton, Dead Kennedys, Eurythmics, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Gabriel, Buddy Holly, INXS, Judas Priest, Kinks, Little Richard, Midnight Oil, Nirvana, Sinead O’Connor, Pavement, Queen, Ramones, SoundGarden, 10,000 Maniacs, U2, The Verve, The Who, X, Yardbirds, and ZZ Top. "[T]his is a browser’s delight."—Atlanta Journal-Constitution
