Overview

Rock 'n' roll without guitars is rock 'n' roll that doesn't rock. The guitar is the foundation on which the style was built, and this richly illustrated volume pays homage to the instrument and legendary players that opened the doors of sensation, creativity, and life itself.
The figures who contributed to guitar history are many, from bluesman B.B. King and the pioneering Chuck Berry to Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Mark Knopfler, and above all, Jimi Hendrix.
Masters of Rock Guitar will strike a chord with music enthusiasts of all ages.
