This isn't the book to read if you want in depth information about particular bands If you like to read about history music and business trends and get a good overview of important artists this is a good read I found the first section of the book uite exciting and interesting The author of that chapter begins by talking about the history of popular music in the United States setting the foundation for the rock and roll to come The information about the 40s and 50s wasn't as interesting to me because many of the acts and songs are unfamiliar I did however enjoy reading about the way the record industry worked back thenThings get interesting during the chapter about the 60s You start reading faster as the rock era really begins to form Familiar names start popping up and you learn about their place in the overall pictureThe book ends in the MTV era of the 80s I think an updated version is needed in order to cover the Grunge rock era Personally I would end the book with today's Indie Rock scene That's where rock and roll is today Once you get through the 50s although that may be interesting to you depending on your age this book is fascinating and informativeFavorite part The chapters about the 60s and 70sFavorite character Alan Freed He ruled popular music with an iron fist in the 1950s but paid dearly for it It's hard to imagine anyone doing such a thing today
