I reccomed any music fan to read the rough guide series they have rock punk metal and is well researched. I am a music historian so i can appreciate the writing and research .some things in the book are not facts The Police was not a punk band only a few songs were in the early days and a few other bands listed are to mainstream to be in this book under punk, but the information on each artist is great even bands i don't know much about.this is a great read for anyone who wants to learn about music history this book is mostly on punk rock of the 1970's from New York To is a great read for any music lover or musician !
