Abstract:

This ten episode documentary covers rock 'n' roll history from its humble beginnings in the '50s to Lollapalooza in the '90s. A kaleidoscope of musical memories, it features interviews with stars from Little Richard to Bono, as they recall the sound and songs that changed their lives. There are vintage clips examining: early stars during rock's first golden age, the turmoil of the British Invasion, the incandescent birth of soul, the death of the folk troubadour as Dylan went electric, the rise and fall of the counterculture, guitar heroes forever, the split personality of the 70s, the rise of punk, and the reinvention of rock to encompass MTV and festival mania in the 90s. Includes classic footage, concert performances, complete songs, and stars galore.
