This colourful book chronicles ten groundbreaking years that wouldn't have happened without the electric guitar. Mojo says it convinces even casual observers that the 1950s was the most innovative decade in recent history. With an enlightening timeline of world events plus cool memorabilia, it illustrates the far-reaching influences of Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Les Paul, and other guitarists of the fabulous '50s.
