Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rock and roll has been around for almost 50 years, and since 1967 Rolling Stone has been following the circus, reporting with wit and insight on its antics. Now Rolling Stone and Chronicle Books join forces to deliver the first five decades of rock and roll as it's never been read before. The Decades of Rock and Roll delves into Rolling Stone's vast archive and pulls out the most interesting, insightful, and seminal essays and interviews written in the history of music journalism. Full of the funny stories and vivid details that bring history to life, the pieces are organized decade by decade along with newly written retrospectives from crack writers like Rob Sheffield and Anthony DeCurtis. Stars like Little Richard, Bob Dylan, and Robert Plant are revealed in incredible interviews. Paul McCartney gives his top ten songs of the '60s as does Moby for the '90s. Black-and-white photos capture Otis Redding on his knees, screaming into the microphone, or Donna Summer wreathed in '70s glitz. From R&B to punk rock to rap to grunge, The Decades of Rock and Roll gives fans of all ages the lowdown on the way it was, and the way it is today
