Summary: David Carson turns the spotlight on those hard-rocking, long-haired musicians - influenced by Detroit's R&B heritage - who ultimately helped change the face of rock 'n' roll. Carson tells the story of some of the great garage-inspired, blue-collar Motor City rock 'n' roll bands that exemplified the Detroit rock sound: The MC5, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, SRC, the Bob Seger System, Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, and Grand Funk Railroad. An indispensable guide for rock aficionados, this book features stories of these groundbreaking groups and is the first book to survey Detroit music of the 1960s and 70s - a ivotal era in rock music history.
