‘ILLUSTRATED HISTORY’ BOOKS BY MUSIC’S TOP JOURNALISTS

Sound Opinions on the Great Rock ‘N’ Roll Rivalry, by Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot
and AC/DC: High Voltage Rock ‘N’ Roll, by Phil Sutcliffe
Coming October 15!
MINNEAPOLIS ? Voyageur Press continues to establish itself as America’s leading publisher of pop and rock books with the impending arrival of two more eye-popping illustrated history packages. Three of music’s top journalists are on board to study a trio of universally renowned (and interestingly varied) artists: Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, renowned Chicago rock journalists, critics, and co-hosts of the nationally syndicated public radio program Sound Opinions with THE BEATLES VS. THE ROLLING STONES: Sound Opinions on the Great Rock ‘N’ Roll Rivalry; and London-based Phil Sutcliffe (Mojo, Q) with AC/DC – HIGH-VOLTAGE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL: The Ultimate Illustrated History. Both books will arrive Oct. 15, 2010.
Both volumes are beautifully packaged, and jam-packed with photos, artifacts, and comprehensive histories of each artist. Undoubtedly, these “Illustrated History” books capture the heart and soul of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and AC/DC. Additionally, THE BEATLES VS. THE ROLLING STONES is the first to compare and contrasts two of rock’s most successful and legendary acts. With the holiday season fast approaching, these gorgeous and highly informative tomes will serve as the perfect gift for the long-time fan, and soon, you’ll get the opportunity to see these titles for yourself.
“As big rock ’n’ roll fans and musicians ourselves,” says Michael Dregni, publisher of Voyageur Press, “we’re thrilled to again be publishing glorious illustrated histories of more of our favorite bands — and just in time for the holidays, so hopefully we’ll pass on the excitement to other music fans.”
All three artists continue to be giants of rock. Both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones have been household names since the 1960s, and continue to thrive to this day. Dropping classic albums one after another, the Beatles and the Stones duked it out not only on the charts, but in the hearts of rock fans worldwide. Few rock bands can be listed as more influential than these acts, as they not only broke ground musically, but also affected fashion, politics, and even how we view society in general.
From their early days as a bar band in Australia through the tragic passing of singer Bon Scott, and of course, their massive comeback success with one of rock’s all-time classic (and best-selling) albums, Back in Black, AC/DC has been rightfully considered one of rock’s all-time great recording and live acts. Their long and winding career has delivered four decades of simply ass-kicking rock n’ roll … so far.
