A celebration of rock music over more than half a century. Rock hasits roots in 1940s and 1950s rock n roll, itself heavily influencedby rhythm & blues and country music, as well as drawing onfolk, jazz and classical music. It burst onto the scene in theearly 1960s, with early rockers introducing a harder beat anddriving rhythm to create a distinctive sound that would endure.This is a visual record of the multi-faceted musical genre, whoseexponents were famous for their adoption of long hair, sex, drugsand rock n roll excess. 500 images from the Mirrorpix archivesillustrate the world of rock, from the boundary defying prog rockand hallucinogenic psychedelic rock; the outrageously camp glamrock to the massive sound of heavy metal and the stripped downthree-chord anarchy of punk rock. Images capture the atmosphere ofrock gigs and arenas, at festivals and in the recording studio.News pictures expose the notoriously hard living lifestyle of rockstars, while portraits of band members and their families revealrocks softer underbelly.
