In contrast with many of their punk peers, Wire were enigmatic and cerebral, always keeping a distance from the crowd. Although Pink Flag appeared before the end of 1977, it was already a meta-commentary on the punk scene and was far more revolutionary musically than the rest of the competition. Few punk bands moved beyond pared-down rock ´n´ roll and garage rock, football-terrace sing-alongs or shambolic pub rock and, if we´re honest, only a handful of punk records hold up today as anything other than increasingly quaint period pieces. While the majority of their peers flogged one idea to death and paid only lip service to punk´s Year Zero credo, Wire took a genuinely radical approach, deconstructing song conventions, exploring new possibilities and consistently reinventing their sound. ´´THIS IS A CHORD. THIS IS ANOTHER. THIS IS A THIRD. NOW FORM A BAND´´, proclaimed the caption to the famous diagram in a UK fanzine in 1976 and countless punk acts embodied that do-it-yourself spirit. Wire, however, showed more interesting ways of doing it once you´d formed that band and they found more compelling uses for those three mythical chords. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julian Elfer.

I Killed Pink Floyd´s Pig is an all-access behind-the-scenes VIP tour of when rock was great, courtesy of Beau Phillips, a respected radio programmer and former head of marketing at MTV. Phillips was an insider and occasional accomplice who witnessed the legends of classic rock in their heyday and takes listeners inside the dressing rooms, hotel suites, and private planes of Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and dozens more to enjoy funny, decadent, and never-been-told stories of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. The book´s foreword was written by Sammy Hagar, former lead singer for Van Halen. He and Phillips met in the late 1970s, early in Hagar´s career. Sammy wrote, ´´Beau has seen all of the rock and roll craziness - and his book is loaded with amazing stories.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Beau Phillips.

La espectacularidad y extensión de este género los hicieron, con justicia, los reyes de toda una década: La de los años 70. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1.

The Show That Never Ends is the behind-the-scenes story of the extraordinary rise and fall of progressive (´´prog´´) rock, epitomized by such classic, chart-topping bands as Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, and Emerson Lake & Palmer, and their successors Rush, Styx, and Asia. With inside access to all the key figures, Washington Post national reporter David Weigel tells the story with the gusto and insight prog rock´s fans (and its haters) will relish. Along the way he explains exactly what was ´´progressive´´ about prog rock, how it arose from psychedelia and heavy metal, why it dominated the pop charts but then became so despised that it was satirized in This Is Spinal Tap, and what fuels its resurgent popularity today. 1.

A rollicking look at 1971 - the busiest, most innovative and resonant year of the ´70s, defined by the musical arrival of such stars as David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Joni Mitchell. On New Year´s Eve, 1970, Paul McCartney told his lawyers to issue the writ at the High Court in London, effectively ending The Beatles. You might say this was the last day of the pop era. The following day, which was a Friday, was 1971. You might say this was the first day of the rock era. And within the remaining 364 days of this monumental year, the world would hear Don McLean´s ´´American Pie´´, The Rolling Stones´ ´´Brown Sugar´´, The Who´s ´´Baba O´Riley´´, Zeppelin´s ´´Stairway to Heaven´´, Rod Stewart´s ´´Maggie May´´, Marvin Gaye´s ´´What´s Going On´´, and more. David Hepworth, an ardent music fan and a well-regarded critic, was 21 in ´71, the same age as many of the legendary artists who arrived on the scene. Taking us on a tour of the major moments, the events and songs of this remarkable year, he shows how musicians came together to form the perfect storm of rock and roll greatness, starting a musical era that would last longer than anyone predicted. Those who joined bands to escape things that lasted found themselves in a new age, its colossal start being part of the genre´s staying power. Never a Dull Moment is more than a love song to the music of 1971. It´s also an homage to the things that inspired art and artists alike. From Soul Train to The Godfather, hot pants to table tennis, Hepworth explores both the music and its landscapes, culminating in an epic story of rock and roll´s best year. 1. Language: English.

The ´60s ended a year late - on New Year´s Eve 1970, when Paul McCartney initiated proceedings to wind up The Beatles. Music would never be the same again. The next day would see the dawning of a new era. Nineteen seventy-one saw the release of more monumental albums than any year before or since and the establishment of a pantheon of stars to dominate the next 40 years - Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Rod Stewart, the solo Beatles and more. January that year fired the gun on an unrepeatable surge of creativity, technological innovation, blissful ignorance, naked ambition and outrageous good fortune. By December rock had exploded into the mainstream. How did it happen? This audiobook tells you how. It´s the story of 1971, rock´s golden year. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Hepworth.
