There are approximately 1200 bands and artists featured in this guide. Each entry consists of short biographical information, band members and selected recordings. “There’s nothing academic about rock”…hence entries are written by fans and there are no citations or lists of further reading. Don’t expect lengthy in-depth entries, but you will find more obscure bands and artists that are hard to find elsewhere.
