Overview

Once an underground scene reserved for college rock hipsters, alternative rock became a full-blown chart-topping musical force in the '90s with the success of such artists as Smashing Pumpkins, Live, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots. Guitar World has been covering the alternative rock scene long before the genre achieved mainstream success, and many of those revealing articles can be found in Guitar World Presents Alternative Rock. Begin by reading the complete history of alternative rock guitar, then flip through page after page of in-depth interviews with some of the biggest names in alt-rock, including Hole, Nirvana, Offspring, Soundgarden, Jane's Addiction and others. This book also features a rare meeting between Tool and Rage Against the Machine, plus an eye-opening look into Lollapalooza, the premier touring vehicle for the alternative rock scene. Guaranteed to be the most thorough and fact-filled package a modern music fan can own!
