Rockabilly - Michael Dregni - Voyageur Press

Post by andrew666 on Fri Aug 19, 2011 1:58 pm

A new history by Michael Dregni takes a post-modernist approach to the explosive new genre that first hit the airwaves during the golden age of the late fifties.

Through a collection of photographs, posters, concert tickets and album covers, the genre's stars and stories unfold in over 200 exciting pages, with a new find on each page.



Elvis, of course, gets attention as the iconic image that represented an entire generation's attitude. Sun studios is also in there with profiles of all their leading artists.

Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent - what memories these names evoke! But the profiles of the lesser known artists are equally fascinating - a more dysfunctional group of young men would be very hard to find - and we love them for it
