From the Back Cover:

Since 1986, a legion of rock & roll stars has congregated annually for a star-studded, rollicking evening that has become one of the most celebrated events of the year and the hottest ticket in rock—the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. For more than two decades, this ceremony—usually held at New York City's Waldorf-Astoria—has paid homage to the legendary artists, producers, songwriters, disc jockeys, and others who have made rock & roll an international musical and social phenomenon. Now, for the first time in published form, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: The First 25 Years reveals the personal, behind-the-scenes dramas, once-in-a-lifetime performances, inspirational toasts, and colorful acceptance speeches that make up rock's most unforgettable night. In their own words, rock's biggest names tell of the inspirations behind their music as they salute the pioneers who paved the way. Containing archival memorabilia, collectible album cover art, and never-before-published photographs of rock's most iconic figures, this comprehensive volume is organized by year, with insightful chapter introductions that contextualize rock & roll's historical and cultural relevance. A wealth of first-person quotations and anecdotes that intimate the truth behind the music and a complete collection of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's program guides round out this must-have reference for anyone interested in rock's progeny. In equal parts a tribute to rock & roll and a contribution to its continued legacy, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: The First 25 Years is the definitive volume for those who rock.
