The Events that Changed the History of Music

From Dylan's first appearance in NYC to the Beatles' rooftop concert, from Woodstock and Monterey to the Pink Floyd reunion tour, this richly illustrated book presents the milestones that changed the history of rock and, in some cases, the world. Beginning in 1964 with Elvis and continuing through the twenty-first century, it reveals how music, culture, life, and society were inextricably and irrevocably intertwined. Here are the Rolling Stones' rocking the house in their London debut, Jimi Hendrix setting his guitar on fire, Michael Jackson moonwalking, the superstar-studded Concert for Bangladesh and Live Aid, and so many more memorable, earth-shattering events.
