Synopses & Reviews
Even More Rock Family Trees is the eagerly awaited new collection by rock's premier draughtsman and archivist Pete Frame. He is justly celebrated for his unique contribution to the literature of the music he loves.
This latest set includes newly drawn family trees of Elton john, the Alman Brothers Band, ELP, Fleetwood Mac, Steve Winwood, the Drifters, Roxy Music, Roger McGuinn, the Beach Boys, Martin Carthy, Shirley Collins, Yes, Asia, Eric Clapton, the Yardbirds, Miles Davis, the Creation label and many more.
Frame's Rock Family Trees are a class act, a loving archival trawl through rock's minutiae at once absurdly detailed and fantastically well observed. - The Independent
Almost lunatic scholarship. - John Peel
