Ch. 1 – Ragtime, Tin Pan Alley, and Jazz Roots of Rock
Posted October 26, 2011
We had to purchase this textbook for a college class I was super-excited to take during my senior year of high school called, "The History of Rock 'N Roll". What's even better about this story is that my school paid for the class since I said I was interested in music and might make it a career choice (which was totally a lie [career choice part], but that was the only way they were going to sponsor the class!) Anywho, this book is an amazing compilation of rock music from its early beginnings onward to present day (or at least to 2003 [it was 2008 when I took the class] with Outkast as the last artists I remember seeing on the last page. It is updated every few years or so though, so I'm sure the newer versions have updated musicians and songs near the end. And if you are having to purchase this book for a class, let me just say that you are probably awesome, because there's most likely no degree that requires you to take a rock music class, and yet you still are, which says a lot about you as a person...and that is...that you're probably a whole heck of a lotta fun!
