Rockin' Down the Highway BOOK

Description: With the help of more than 1,000 evocative images, including many not previously seen in print, prominent rock historian Paul Grushkin presents the expansive celebration of the unholy marriage of music and machine.

With an appreciation for all genres of popular music- Rock & Roll, R&B, rockabilly, surf, soul, psychedelia, punk, funk, folk, hip-hop, and more-Grushkin riffs on the associations that artists have had with cars, through both their songs and everyday lives. The author also turns the table to show how leading figures from the automotive realm have played a persistent part in the world of popular music.

The result is massive and mind-bendingly illustrated, thanks to scores of car-related musical ephemera, imagery from many leading photographers from around the world, and some of today?s top rock-poster artists who have created exclusive art for the book.

The relationship between rock and cars has been long and rich-Rockin' Down the Highway is the long-overdue and glorious tribute.

Rock on! Book
