Overview

Rock & Roll is here to stay—so get back to the roots of this exciting, explosive music with the man who saw it all happen: legendary radio personality Cousin Brucie!

The artists presented here played vital roles in the earth-shattering changes that unfolded over the decades, from the time rock started to roll in the 50s. Elvis swiveled his hips to the screams of teens—and the horror of their parents. Then came the attack of the Union Jack, with the madness of Beatlemania quickly followed by The Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and countless others. Petula Clark and Dusty Springfield belted it out with newly emerging girl power. Teens across America went "Surfing USA" to the sounds of The Beach Boys, while Detroit Soul had kids dancing in the streets. Hippies flew high on Jefferson Airplane—and Woodstock galvanized a nation. Records like Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Pet Sounds changed the way music was produced forever.

Cousin Brucie puts the music in its historical context. The songs unfold against a backdrop of social upheaval, from JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., civil rights, and anti-war movements to the first Earth Day, Batman, Women’s Lib, and Watergate. The book teems with archival photographs, posters, album covers, record labels, newspaper articles, magazine covers, poems, quotes, and more.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Music was the language of the land, and Cousin Brucie was the man with the mike….”  - Billy Joel, From the Epilogue

"Here's the next installment on the story behind the music that's become the soundtrack of our lives by the man who broke the records, knew the artists, and was ever ybody's cousin on the radio. It's a must have for fans of all ages." Terry Stewart, President of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

“He’s a walking encyclopedia. He not only knows all the music, he knows all the people who made the music…. I can’t think of another soul…who could put together a book like this better than Cousin Bruce Morrow.”—Tommy James

“Cousin Brucie's musical knowledge is unsurpassed…[he’s] a living encyclopedia of rock & roll. This book is a must for rock enthusiasts everywhere from someone who's heard it all and played it all for five decades. A winner!! Enjoy!”—Marky Ramone

“Cousin Brucie is to rock & roll as cream cheese is to a bagel, as a home run is to baseball, as Central Park is to New York City. Cousin Brucie makes the joy of rock & roll come to life. Nobody does it better than Brucie!” – Peter Yarrow

Publishers Weekly
Following up on Doo Wop: The Music, the Times, the Era, this retrospective celebrates the rock scene of the 1960s and early 1970s. Legendary deejay Morrow and Maloof, former editor-in-chief of Guitar, note the eruption of drugs, radicalism and freakery into rock during the 1960s, but politely spare us the juicy details we expect from a man with the kind of all-access pass Morrow had. Morrow makes prim reference to the Doors’ “controversy-courting frontman” Jim Morrison and to Ozzie Osbourne’s reputation “as a very strange person.” Morrow does highlight the Beatles’ first performance at Shea Stadium in 1965—which he himself emceed. The screams of 55,000 fans were so loud that Ed Sullivan nervously turned to Morrow and asked, “Is this going to be dangerous?” The authors include sidebar appreciations of individual bands and illuminate, through their photographic documentation, the apocalyptic changes in, among other things, men’s hair styles during the 1960s. Descriptions of pop culture symbols—the 1965 Mustang; Batman TV series; The Graduate—help put perspective on the music of the era. The authors cover everything, from the British Invasion (Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, etc.) to Motown (including the Supremes and Martha and the Vandellas), ending with the Doobie Brothers, Allman Brothers, Steely Dan and Pink Floyd.

Meet the Author

A veritable legend in broadcast history, "Cousin Brucie" Morrow is the only on-air personality in New York City to have a street named after him, and he was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1988 and Broadcasting & Cable's Hall of Fame in 1990. His autobiography, COUSIN BRUCIE: MY LIFE IN ROCK AND ROLL RADIO, was a bestseller as was his classic, DOO WOP: THE MUSIC, THE TIMES, THE ERA. "Cousin Brucie" recently signed another long-term contract with Sirius XM Radio, so listeners can groove with their favorite DJ three times a week.

Rich Maloof is an award-winning writer and musician whose work has appeared in numerous media. He wrote DOO WOP: THE MUSIC, THE TIMES, THE ERA with Cousin Brucie and has authored another eleven published titles to date. Formerly the editor-in-chief of Guitar magazine, he was also a contributor to the 48-book continuity series Roots of Rhythm. Maloof has written outside of music for Microsoft, CNN, Yahoo, MSNBC, and others.

    NOT TO BE MISSED

    Cousin Bruce Morrow's new book is not to be missed. Attended the book signing at B&N and enjoyed the Cuz's overview as well. This book, along with the earlier book, traces the history, from the keeper of the flame, Cousin Brucie. I await the next book!!
