From Library Journal:

Epting's latest guidebook to pop-culture landmarks (after The Ruby Slippers, Madonna's Bra, and Einstein's Brain: The Locations of America's Pop Culture Artifacts) is dedicated to rock 'n' roll. Divided into themed sections, it covers, e.g., locations of famous performances, blues and jazz spots, and rock 'n' roll museums. Two somewhat macabre sections (whose entries are arranged alphabetically by artist) are dedicated to death and burial sites. This thematic organization is handy, unless you want to track down all the entries on a particular artist, in which case you'd have to look in every section. Even artists with entire chapters dedicated to them, like Elvis and the Beatles, have stray entries in the book's other parts. Organization aside, the entries are engaging and diverse. Epting manages to pay tribute to the major players without marginalizing the minor ones, choosing moments in musical history that cover a broad range of styles and generations. Recommended for all public libraries.-John Helling, Aguilar Branch, NYPL (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
