Overview

Cars and rock 'n roll have always gone hand in hand. Whether it's a garage band piling into some decrepit rig to get to the next gig or a killer guitar riff blasting from a Mustang, rock 'n roll keeps us moving when we're behind the wheel.

 

It's no surprise, then, that some of the music world's big names are also serious car guys. Jimmie Vaughn, Billy Joel, Brian Johnson (AC/DC), J Geils, Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), and others each spend as much time behind the wheel as they can. Hot rods, customs, muscle cars, motorcycles, race cars, and sports cars-the variety of vehicles is as eclectic as rock 'n roll itself.

 

Rockin' Garages showcases top performers, their cars, and their garages. Authors Tom Cotter and Ken Gross profile each musician, revealing the story behind their moto-lust and what drives their car collecting. Each profile is complemented by Michael Alan Ross' top-notch photography. Rockin' Garages puts you behind the wheel with some of your favorite musicians.
