Rolling Stone has commissioned a new full-scale history by three rock experts.
Rolling Stone has commissioned a new full-scale history by three rock experts. Ward covers the Fifties, Geoffrey Stokes the Sixties, Ken Tucker the Seventies and Eighties. Each provides a finely detailed chronicle of the major and minor figuresmusicians, company executives, disc jockeys, and promoters. No new historical interpretation is offered. According to Ed Ward in the first 1/3 of "Rock of Ages," country and rhythm & blues evolved along parallel lines until coming together and producing the country/r&b offspring called rock and roll. Yes, this would certainly explain the vast similaries between Grandpa Jones and Muddy Waters.
Ken Tucker traces the 1970s through roughly 1985, tracking funk, disco, punk and new wave and the further splintering of the audience into niche markets. A must have member of the Rolling Stone Magazine trilogy of rock (The 1983 Encyclopedia & the red-cover [the blue's good too)record guide being the others).

ROCK OF AGES: The Rolling Stone History of Rock and Roll. By Ed Ward, Geoffrey Stokes and Ken Tucker
ROCK OF AGES: The Rolling Stone History of Rock and Roll. By Ed Ward, Geoffrey Stokes and Ken Tucker. Rolling Stone Press/Summit Books. Rock-and-roll has traditionally found room for the idealism of youth, the calculating crassness of commerce, and the development of a uniquely American musical and verbal idiom. Why has this widely misunderstood music, consistently under attack from secular and religious authorities, taken root so stubbornly? To what degree is it subculture, to what degree mass culture?
Most "history" books about Rock and Roll are little more than tabloid trash, unsubstantiated gossip or silly rants . The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock and Roll: The Definitive History of the Most Important Artists and Their Music - hands down.
Most "history" books about Rock and Roll are little more than tabloid trash, unsubstantiated gossip or silly rants about how wonderful it was when the writer discovered the Beatles or Led Zeppelin. The best books about Rock and Roll are reference works that teach you about the records themselves and allow you to listen to them (the only real way to learn about the music) with a more intelligent ear. I love any books by Robert Christgau, particularly his Consumer Record Guides of the 70's, 80's and 90's. I also like the All Music guides.
