The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the most famous rock and roll institution in the world. In 2009, the Hall of Fame celebrated its twenty-fifth year with numerous events in Cleveland and a two-day anniversary filmed concert on October 29 and 30, 2009 at Madison Square Garden. A four-hour edited version appeared on HBO.
An illustrated, vibrant book commemorating the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s twenty-fifth anniversary through colorful profiles of its inductees over the years, this volume includes a wealth of historical photography, archival memorabilia, and the low-down on the musicians and their contributions to the genre. It is published with the full support of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, allowing full access to their archives. Jann Wenner, co-founder and publishier of Rolling Stone magazine, has contributed the foreword. It is an essential volume that completes every rock lover's bookshelf.
Every inductee in the Hall of Fame is included--from musicians to producers--in an engaging visual format that features great vintage and contemporary photography, memorabilia from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, first-person quotes and anecdotes, encapsulated biographies, statistics on top-selling records, hits, awards, influences and influencers. Often hilarious, sometimes sentimental and sometimes very serious, the book answers questions like: What did Sheryl Crow say when she inducted Fleetwood Mac? What did the Edge say when he inducted the Clash? What did Bono say when he inducted Bruce Springsteen in 1999--and six years later, what did Springsteen say about U2? It is a seminal book for rock and roll fans around the world.About the Author:
