“This book is totally different than what I thought it would, and I’m still delighted I got it.
I thought it was going to be a narrative on the history of Rock music. Well, it is and it isn’t.
It is more presented as a succession of facts, dated, and in chronological orders. Within these, stories are told, but from a factual point of view rather than a dramatised, story telling angle. It is a bit like QI of Rock’n’Roll
It is fascinating. through the succession of facts, you see how history is made, how band members swap bands and make them great, how importanT some gigs have been and the succession of events that followed etc.
It’s like you can see how all these, seemingly innocuous succession of small events end up creating the great history of Rock music.
What I love about this book is that you could read it from page 1 till the end if you like, but I prefer to just have it on the coffee table and nip in and out at totally random pages and read for a few minutes when I seat on the sofa chilling. It is so perfect for that and so interesting. I think this book will be on my coffee table for a very long time.
So, it’s not really a book you take to the beach on your summer holiday, but more of a bible of the early years of rock music you can refer to at will.
Bonus point: if you are a quizz fan, this is the right book for you.
It must have been a huge effort from the author to track all this and document it.
I presume there will be a volume 2 and i look forward to it”.
