In 1955 Richard Brooks's film, Blackboard Jungle, featuring Bill Haley singing "Rock Around the Clock," was released. Crowds of young people rushed to the movie houses just to see him and to hear the song. Rock was born.Following the early pioneers came the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and Pink Floyd. The world of music was ever the same. From beatniks to punks, and from hippies to rappers, rock has experienced and encouraged countless social and cultural transformations. Legends of Rock provides visual accompaniment and context to these transformations. With more than 400 photographs embodying the very essence of what it means to "rock" through the decades-from Chuck Berry to Axl Rose, from glam rock to gangsta rap-Legends of Rock is essential part of any music enthusiast's library.
