The Great History of Rock

From Elvis Presley to the Present Day

The universe of rock is a star-studded one; filled with artists and songs that have changed the world with their innovation, their ideas, their thoughts, and their style. The Great History of Rock presents 80 of these amazing artists from Elvis Presley to Bob Dylan, the Beatles to the Rolling Stones, KISS to Nirvana, and Amy Winehouse to Coldplay.
