About this product
- DescriptionFrom its roots in the blues sound of black American jazz in the 1930s to the stadium-rocking megastars of today. This book tells you how rock music has evolved, been influenced by and influenced other musical genres. The invention of the electric guitar in the 1930s was a turning point for music. It opened up genres such as jazz and country music and helped them evolve into an edgier, rockier sound. Featuring the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, glam rock stars like David Bowie and Mark Bolan, the legendary Led Zeppelin and the stadium rockers of the 1980s and 90s, right through to modern rock stars like the Queens of the Stone Age and Jack White, they all feature in this brilliant journey through musical history. The Story of Dance Music and Electronica is part of the series, Pop Histories, which takes a similarly detailed look at other popular musical genres.
