THE STORY OF ROCK SMASH HITS AND SUPERSTARS
On 3 July 1954 Elvis Presley entered a recording studio in Memphis, Tennessee, and rock and roll was born. Springing from its roots in the gospel and blues of the American South, rock became a huge business, a global culture, and the stirring voice of a new younger generation.
The story leads through Sixties protest and Seventies punk to the indie groups and cult movements of today. Dazzling megastars and pop legends appear in all their glory, reflecting not only their changing times, but the whole spirit of an age.
