Rolling Stone presents the third edition of its rock and roll bible - a must-read guide for music addicts and novices alike. In 1993, Rolling Stone Press introduced its first rock and roll encyclopedia - a long awaited compendium to the most popular musical innovation of the twentieth century: rock and roll. Twelve years later, they produced a second version detailing rock's movement from the Beatles and the Go-Gos to Nirvana and Public Enemy. Since its inception, this reference has become a classic in its own right. Phenomenally accurate, informative and encapsulating, it tells the story of rock and roll in a clear and easy format. This revised volume is the definitive sourcebook on the world's music makers. From the one-hit wonders to the megastars, this photo-laden work shows how rock has developed not just as a musical genre but also as a way of life. It's all here, from the tremendous impact of Madonna, MTV, rap, hip-hop and alternative rock to complete profiles of the Grateful Dead, the Rolling Stones, NWA and hundreds of other musicians, both famous and infamous. More than just a reference book, The Rolling Stone of Encyclopedia is the final word in rock and roll.
