The Biographical Dictionary of Popular Music
From Adele to Ziggy, the Real A to Z of Rock and PopBook - 2012
Compiles biographical dictionary entries of over three hundred of the most important popular and rock musicians and groups.
The Biographical Dictionary of Popular Music is an incredible and opinionated collection of celebrated cultural critic Dylan Jones's thoughts on more than 350 of the most important artists around the world—alive and dead, big and small, at length and in brief. This A to Z reference is the true musical heir to David Thomson's seminal The New Biographical Dictionary of Popular Film. Jones writes entertainingly about bands that have inspired, bedeviled, and fascinated him over the years.
