"A thrilling, inspirational read." (Bob Stanley Guardian)
"Set the template for a whole new style of rock journalism, informed, irreverent, passionate and polemical." (Choice Magazine)
"The best writer about pop music...an inspiration." (Jarvis Cocker BBC Radio 6 Music)
"The book to read if you want to get some idea of the original primal energy of pop music. Loads of unfounded, biased assertions that almost always turn out to be right. Absolutely essential." (Jarvis Cocker Guardian)
"Cohn was the first writer authentically to capture the raucous vitality of pop music" (Sunday Telegraph)
Nik Cohn began to write this book in the late 1960s with a simple purpose: to catch the feel, the pulse of Rock. Nobody had written a serious book on the subject before, and there were no reference books or research to refer to. The result is an unruly, thrilling and definitive history of an era, from Bill Haley to Jimi Hendrix, full of guts, flash, energy and speed. In vividly describing the music and cutting through the hype, Nik Cohn engendered and perfected a new form: rock criticism.
