All Roots Lead to Rock: Legends of Early Rock 'n' Roll : a Bear Family Reader
Schirmer Books, 1999 - Rhythm and blues music - 257 pages
All Roots Lead to Rock tells the story of a group of "couldabeens, hasbeens, shouldabeens," and just plain "weres" to show the many different influences that came together to make the mighty musical stew we call rock 'n' roll. The family tree of rock 'n' roll has many branches. And the roots are often lost in the dusky soil - far from view of even the most loyal listeners. So today's fans of Marilyn Manson may only be vaguely familiar with the original Son-of-Satan, Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Hawkins's stage act included a mixture of voodoo, high gothic horror, and just plain kitsch that would have made Alice Cooper blush.
