Description

Product Description

The classic history from Rolling Stone that brings to life  the evolution of a dynamic, revolutionary art form.

Beginning with rock’s roots in blues, jazz and gospel, here are eye-opening portraits and critical assessments of Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, James Brown and Bob Dylan, and more, all the way up to Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, U2, Prince, Public Enemy and other ground-breakers in rock, hip-hop, and heavy metal.

The essays are by the world’s preeminent rock writers—among them Greil Marcus, Robert Palmer, David Fricke, Dave Marsh, Robert Christgau, Chuck Eddy, Stephen Holen, Bill Flanagan, Alan Light, J.D. Considine and many others.

The photography in the Illustrated History is superlative, representing the works of the most celebrated photographers along with rare snapshots and long-lost photos from the early days of rock. Complete with detailed discographies on every important performer and genre, The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll is an indispensable reference for every fan.

From the Inside Flap

The ultimate illustrated history of rock & roll--comprehensive, authoritative, and fully updated with coverage of the most important new sounds and artists of the 1980s and 90s.

About the Author

Rolling Stone was founded in 1967 by Jann Wenner and Ralph Gleason.

I ordered this book for my Stepdad for Father''s Day, as he loves rock music and having lots of fun trivia facts up his sleeve. My stepdad is sometimes hard to please.. and he''s generally not a big book reader. This book was a huge hit! He sat down to read the book immediately after opening it and sat until he had looked through the whole thing. I am very pleased with this purchase!

The book is of interest to any rock historian, or to anyone interested in history from the birth of rock and roll around 1953 through the 1960s and into the 1970s. The book is in black and white, no color, and some of the script is also black and white, that is, it does a good job of chronicling the major influences of rock from the beginning until the end of classic rock and metal, sometimes insightfully, sometimes in a Wikipedia-style of writing. This is like the meat and potatoes version of rock history.

It offers this interesting insight on The Who, "A big part of the Who''s glory was its anger, its hostility," definitly true, "and a big part of that came from the utter frustation of not breaking through to a bigger audiance." Don''t reall think the Who''s anger came from not being able to break through to a bigger audiance. It was a part of who they were. In the section on Elton John, it more or less choronologizes his works, but does little to offer insight into who Elton John was, what drove him, his hangups, problems with drugs and alcohol, it gives you a straight glimpse of his music through the ears and eyes of music, as a history.

So, for the researcher looking for a straight, neatly organized, easy to digest history, with some quotable inisghts, it does fairly well. If you are looking to go a little deeper, there are probably other works which may give more insight into the artists, their lives, and what moved them, drove them, their loves and demons, etc.

But, I got used to it and actually learned a LOT from it and that''s with only reading about half of it. It''s also in black and white and doesn''t have glossy pages, so do not be expecting anything too flashy.
