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.
