Description
 
Colin Escott (ed). Shows the many different influences that came together to make the mighty musical stew we call rock n roll. Over four decades ago, a ribald blues singer out of Kansas City named Julia Lee combined the power of a boogie-woogie beat with suggestive numbers. And who can forget Louis Prima, the Las Vegas bop star whose music is recalled today by stars as diverse as Brian Setzer & David Lee Roth. And then there are the many tragic stories of great success followed by even greater loss, such as Frankie Lymon, the sweet voiced kid who led the Teenagers. This book tells the stories about the early years of the music that would become rock n roll in the vivid writings of many of todays greatest music historians & critics. Photos.
