This diary looks at what happened on each day of the year in rock music covering the years from 1955 to 1993. The book is packed with information about hundreds of rock figures - births, deaths, red-letter days and milestones. From the vintage rock 'n' rollers like Bill Haley and Elvis Presley, through the so-called "British invasion" of America in the 1960s, to psychaedelia, heavy metal, Glam rock, punk and new romanticism, right up-to-date with rap and hip-hop. With a page for all 366 days of the year each date will cover at least two main events in depth, and include boxes giving other events in brief and listings of the notable rock 'n' roll births and deaths. Carefully researched by rock historians to include thousands of facts about numerous rock stars and legends, and featuring 575 historic photographs, this book should provide rock fans with an invaluable reference book that is fun to read.
