Subtitled THE DEFINITIVE CHRONICLE OF ROCK & ROLL AS TOLD BY ITS LEGENDS.
Foreword by Jann Wenner.
"The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the only institution in the world dedicated to the preservation, presentation, and education of the continuing significance of rock and roll in our lives and culture, celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary in 2009. This milestone was commemorated by a two-day concert at Madison Square Garden featuring the biggest names in rock and roll that was filmed and later aired as an HBO special. Edited by music authority Holly George-Warren, this phenomenal book includes all the inductees from the first twenty-five years - from musicians to producers - in an engaging visual format that features great vintage and contemporary photography, memorabilia from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, first-person quotes and anecdotes, encapsulated biographies, statistics on top-selling records, hits, awards, influences and influencers. Often hilarious, frequently moving, and sometimes very emotional excerpts from induction speeches have been transcribed and are published for the first time here, from Lou Reed paying homage to Dion to Ray Charles' appreciation of Billy Joel, from Pete Townsend's witty roast of the Rolling Stones, to Bono's eloquent induction of Bruce Springsteen. These are words to treasure. Editorially and visually rich, this large volume is the perfect gift for every music lover."
