“Roots and antecedents come from black American blues, gospel and jazz, American folk and country,” said Ahmet Ertegun, a co-founder of the Rock Hall, at the 2005 ceremony. I especially enjoyed the introductory exhibition in the museum about the musical influences — which also included doo wop, Texas swing, hillbilly and jump blues — that coalesced into rock and roll.

I'm a big fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so I found this book really interesting. It had lots of dish about the rock 'n' roll personalities and their inevitable clashes and feuds at the ceremonies throughout the years. (Apparently Phil Spector stopped being invited after the first few ceremonies, and now things just aren't nearly as deliciously messy anymore.)

There are also lots of great photos of the then-and-now variety. I only wish the book could have included more. Most of the speech

Really great read with tons of music knowledge for me to store up and use again and again, like say on trivia night. Oh wait...that was tonight. #nailedit

I bought this as a souvenir from a recent trip to Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was a really interesting look through the first 25 years of inductions, the celebrations, the fun. I also enjoyed reading what artists had to say about other artists. My favorite part was all of the pictures, not just of the awards but of the artists through their careers.

I was given this as an award from school. Not a bad collection of anecdotes from different (usually equally popular) artists on those being honoured, though there are many that I am not particularly interested in reading about. Not my jam so much, but I could imagine this giving great pleasure to others.
