For every Beatles or Stones, there are dozens of visionary rock groups who remain unsung heroes. From cult figures such as Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett (the most famous musician included here) to virtually undiscovered artists, this behind-the-scenes book with a fascinating CD of 12 rare songs celebrates the best rockers in everything from '50s rockabilly to '90s post-punk -- the unknown greats who, for one reason or another, just never made it. Features a lot of photos throughout. ©1998, 422 pages. Book & CD.
