Hendler chronicles the evolution of rock from its inception in 1954 through a year-by-year breakdown of the progression of musical events--the artists, groups, songs, dances, and LPs that rocked the youth generation for nearly three decades. The book relates rock music to indirectly related phenomena such as fashion, alternative lifestyles, film, jargon, and television. Hendler's special focus is on innovation, overall business aspects, sociological factors, landmarks of cyclical change, turning points, demographics, and statistics.
