It's no wonder that Clevland is home to the internationally famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - Cleveland disc jockey Alan Freed coined the phrase for this new musical phenomenon nearly 50 years ago. This work takes an in-depth look at the people, venues, and artists that made Cleveland the Rock 'n' Roll Capital of the World. It shows how Cleveland witnessed the rise of such widely recognized groups as the James Gang, the Outsiders, Damnation of Adam Blessing, and the Raspberries. Casey Kasem fine-tuned his long-running broadcasting career in Cleveland. Nearby Canton gave us the O'Jays, and Akron spawned Devo and Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. And the rock concert was pratically invented in Cleveland in 1952, when Alan Freed convened the first Moondog Coronation Ball. By the 1970s Cleveland had become a proving ground for superstars in the making.

Introduction by Ray Blount Jnr. 'Rock and Roll' has now been in the lexicon for nearly fifty years. With any institution come the requisite skewering humour, and naturally rock and roll is now ready for that treatment.

A rollicking ride through the rock scene during the 1970s and 1980s details the author's impact on New York City as a supermodel and her adventures with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Todd Rundgren, Steven Tyler, Elvis Costello, and Mick Jagger. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
