When the singing is over and the talking starts, that’s when the true, unvarnished wisdom of rock ‘n’ roll comes out.
Built on first-hand experience, the gorgeous, illustrated Little Book of Rock ‘n’ Roll Wisdom offers the wise words of stars past and present on a variety of topics like love, breakups, rebellion, success, feeling good, being down-and-out, and even death to offer the big-picture view of rock ‘n’ roll. Rock stars can be outrageous, funny, in your face, and sometimes even oddly humanitarian. This collection includes wisdom from such icons as Elvis, Bowie, Jimi, Dylan, Bruce, Mick, Keith, Prince, Lennon, Ozzy, Clapton, Bono, Janis, and more.
