Dr. Rob Brosh's Classic Rock History is a thoroughly detailed examination of one of America's most popular and celebrated genres of music. The book charts the development of rock from its earliest days of Blues and Gospel music, working its way through Elvis Presley, the British Invasion, folk, metal, and ending on the modern pop music of today. Rock History should be a great resource for students of music and fans of rock overall. As child of the 1960s and a professional musician myself, the book elaborated on many of my favorite artists and familiar movements from memory, but also introduced a lot of new details that were very welcome.

Many music history books are written from a critical perspective but lack the hard-earned expertise and knowledge of the craft that only a professional musician can offer. Dr. Brosh's many years as a working drummer inform the meticulous voice of his writing, and create for a very comprehensive understanding of the genre. I will be recommending this one to my students!
