Providing fascinating profiles of musicians and bands ranging from the popular and influential Eric Clapton and Mike Bloomfield to lesser-known artists such as Bakerloo and Black Cat Bones, this collection spans a vibrant period in which blues music enjoyed a significant renaissance due largely to young white musicians who fused it with rock 'n' roll. Exhaustive searches of 1960s and 1970s rock journalism are combined with up-to-date personal interviews to create new, fuller pictures of the musicians who defined this genre, and new light is shed on the riveting dynamics that shaped and ultimately defined combustible groups such as the Yardbirds, Cream, and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. Included are in-depth artist biographies, discographies, and discussions of the artists' critical and commercial impact.
