    One thought on “Rock: the Rough Guide”

    1. Rough Guides' first go at a rock encyclopedia, written entirely by fans (most of them paid £5 per entry) but edited by Rough Guides to ensure a measure of objectivity. Some wilfully obscure artists add to the charm; glaring omissions (such as Slade) found their way into the 2nd edition. Dated now, of course, but it does give a glimpse into how the culture was regarded in the mid-1990s.
