Description
Since the early days of rock 'n' roll -- since Elvis Presley came out of Memphis to startle the world -- a whole body of writing has grown up around the music. The Da Capo Book of Rock & Roll Writing presents the very best of this writing -- and, in the process, an unsurpassed overview of the major moments and movements in rock -- from the liner notes for Elvis's first LP in 1956 to an account, by REM band member Mike Mills, of the musical culture of Athens, Georgia. And where else can you find:
-- "The First Tycoon of Teen" by Tom Wolfe
-- "In Which Yet Another Pompous Blowhard Purports to Possess the True Meaning of Punk Rock" by Lester Bangs
-- "What the Sixties Had That the Eighties Don't Have" by Paul Williams
-- "You and the Boss" by Tama Janowitz
