Rock Concert: An Oral History as Told by the Artists, Backstage Insiders, and Fans Who Were ThereAutor: Marc Myers Czyta: Christina Delaine, Michael Butler Murray Audiobook
Decades after the rise of rock music in the 1950s, the rock concert retains its allure and its power as a unifying experience-and as an influential multi-billion-dollar industry. In Rock Concert, acclaimed interviewer Marc Myers sets out to uncover the history of this compelling phenomenon, weaving together groundbreaking accounts from the people who were there.
Myers combines the tales of icons like Joan Baez, Ian Anderson, Alice Cooper, Steve Miller, Roger Waters, and Angus Young with figures such as the disc jockeys who first began playing rock on the radio, like Alan Freed in Cleveland and New York; the audio engineers that developed new technologies to accommodate ever-growing rock audiences; music journalists, like Rolling Stone's Cameron Crowe; and the promoters who organized it all, like Michael Lang, cofounder of Woodstock, to create a rounded and vivid account of live rock's stratospheric rise.
Rock Concert provides a fascinating, immediate look at the evolution of rock 'n' roll through the lens of live performances-spanning from the rise of R&B in the 1950s, through the hippie gatherings of the '60s, to the growing arena tours of the '70s and '80s. Featuring dozens of key players in the history of rock and filled with colorful anecdotes, Rock Concert will speak to anyone who has experienced the transcendence of live rock.
