Rock Amp Roll Explorer Guide To
de Crispin Kott e Mike Katz
Sobre o livro
From the churches and street corners of Harlem and The Bronx to the underground clubs of the East Village, New York City has been a musical Mecca for four generations, and Rock & Roll Explorer is the definitive historical guide to its development throughout the five boroughs. Plug in and walk the same streets a young Bob Dylan walked. See where Patti Smith, the Ramones, Beastie Boys, and Jeff Buckley played. Visit on foot the places Lou Reed mentions in his songs or where Paul Simon grew up; where the Strokes drowned their sorrows, Grizzly Bear cut their teeth and Jimi Hendrix found his vision. Rock and Roll Explorer's Guide gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at how bands came together, scenes developed, and classic songs were written. Artists come and go, neighborhoods change, venues open and close, but the music lives on.
