Overview

On New Year’s Day 1964, the now-legendary English TV show Top of the Pops premiered on the BBC, featuring the Rolling Stones, the Hollies, and the Dave Clark Five. Over the next two decades virtually every major rock and pop act from Britain and the U.S. alike—from the Beatles and Bob Dylan to Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and David Bowie—appeared on Top of the Pops, and every one was captured by the show’s official photographer, Harry Goodwin.
 
Goodwin recorded the evolution of the era at a time of enormous social change, as music progressed from beat to protest, from Motown and psychedelia to glam rock and heavy metal. My Generation: The Glory Years of Rock tells the story of the people who provided the soundtrack to those momentous times, with outstanding, beautifully printed images of the biggest names in rock history.
