"An absolute must for any rock-music fan." --Booklist

Arranged alphabetically by band name for ease of reference, Rock Chronicles offers a fascinating, encyclopedic study of the ever-shifting line-ups, appearances, labels, sounds and successes of 250 of the most important rock acts of the past fifty years. It is a must for any music fan.

Rock Chronicles is designed for today's visually-savvy consumers. Innovative, color-coded infographics give at-a-glance coverage from 1960 to 2010. Insightful commentary highlighted with photographs gives the lowdown on every member, whatever their role in the band, however short-lived their time with them, and however well known.

Coverage is expanded for 50 of the biggest acts, with stunning displays of iconic photographs that chart their dramatic changes in appearance. Year-by-year color timelines trace the evolution of these influential bands. Total sales figures are given for the ten most successful albums. The book closes with a fact-filled, cross-referenced performer directory.

Comprehensive and compelling, Rock Chronicles is the essential reference for everyone who loves rock music.
