Summary

Summary

Bob Dylan. Lennon and McCartney. Jagger and Richards. David Bowie. Springsteen. These, and others of their stature, are the greatest names in rock 'n' roll--the pioneers, the visionaries, the musicians and composers who transformed pop into art. Here, amply illustrated with photographs, are their words, culled from interviews and articles. Iggy Pop crows with enthusiasm over his then-new work; Clapton addresses accusations of racism; the Sex Pistols provoke; and Bob Marley speaks of his faith. An irresistible compilation, including lists of key recordings.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Focusing on 15 of the most outstanding rockers of all time, Rock `N' Roll People: The Pioneers of Pop in Their Own Voices is a great retrospective and a great read. Consultant editor David Sandison culled interviews with leading lights like Bowie, Dylan, Lennon, the Sex Pistols the usual suspects from the archives of Melody Maker, the U.K.'s longstanding authority on all things pop-musical. With glossy photographs on every page and lengthy, behind-the-scenes interviews (many of them from the 1970s), this tribute to rock's elite will have broad appeal. ( Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
