Abstract:

"During the 1950s and 1960s, Asbury Park, New Jersey. was the place to be - to stroll along the boardwalk, to sunbathe, and, most importantly, to listen to live music. But since the city fell into ruin, culminating in the race riots of the 1970s, many were left to wonder if the former rock 'n' roll mecca had been silenced forever. In Local Heroes, author Anders Martensson and photographer Jorgen Johansson revisit the myths, legends, and romantic visions of the music scene in a town that is striving to make a comeback."--Jacket.
