About the Author

Mike Tanner started writing songs in his teens -- very badly at first, but gradually improving. When he was about 20, he began recording demo tapes, and by his mid-30s he had made three albums of original music, featuring a number of different bands he'd formed and folded over the years.

Mike began writing prose as a reaction to the restrictions of having to encapsulate an entire subject in a four-minute pop song with rhyming couplets. Mike's first novel, Acting the Giddy Goat, grew out of those early prose experiments. He enjoys vibrant, muscular writing that's either very human, like Mordecai Richler's; intellectually satiric, like Aldous Huxley's; or pyrotechnically impressive, like Don DeLillo's.

Author and musician Mike Tanner puts you in the front row as he chooses a single pivotal event in the careers of the ten greatest rock artists of the era. He tells readers who influenced these classic bands, and in turn, which contemporary bands have drawn on the sounds from that time. Tanner lists each bands' best songs and albums, and highlights some of the other great musical figures who enjoyed popular appeal. Sidebars include political, social and cultural events of the '60s that shaped the music scene, each bands best songs and albums, and some of the other great musical figures who enjoyed popular appeal.
