Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This colourful book chronicles ten groundbreaking years that wouldn't have happened without the electric guitar. Mojo says it "convinces even casual observers that the 1950s was the most innovative decade in recent history." With an enlightening timeline of world events plus cool memorabilia, it illustrates the far-reaching influences of Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Les Paul, and other guitarists of the fabulous '50s.

Synopsis:

This book plugs you into a decade in popular music and pop culture that simply could not have happened without the electric guitar. Year by year, you'll discover the guitars, players (Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Barney Kessel and many more) and developments that impacted jazz, blues and country - and gave birth to a timeless movement called rock'n'roll. In stunning full-color throughout, it also features classic ads, catalogs, movie posters and other fascinating '50s memorabilia. Includes an index and a bibliography.
