Rock 'n' roll and the Cleveland connectionUser Review - Book Verdict
Cleveland-area freelance writer Adams has left out little in this musical history of the port city, home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Her aptly titled book opens with rock's roots in the 1950s and chronicles how Cleveland's North Coast radio stations have been making and breaking national and regional artists for decades. Of course, it was Cleveland jock Alan Freed who played rhythm and blues on his Moondog program and renamed it rock'n'roll. Adams also documents the prominent Cleveland clubs of the past 40 years, where bands rose to national status and/or evaporated. Profiled are both the winners (e.g., Trent Reznor, Joe Walsh, David Allen Coe, and the Dead Boys) and the losers, who are always more fun to read about. The best case is local sensation Michael Stanley (he wrote the foreword), who had all the makings of a Bruce Springsteen but could never break out nationally despite selling hundreds of thousands of records on the North Coast. At 612 pages, the book will lag for readers with no interest in radio. But if considered as a reference (no other works have this focus), it provides ample lessons on why Cleveland rocks. Recommended for larger libraries, voracious rock readers, and major Joe Walsh fans. Eric Hahn, Fargo, ND ...
I absolutely love this book. I am a disc jockey and have worked in Cleveland for the past 25 years. I refer to this book often while working. It is so well written and I can honestly say nothing has been left out. It's compelling, thorough and easy to read. It's very well written and researched. Thank you Deanna for writing such a great book on Cleveland, music and musicians. You won't be disappointed that you bought this book. If you are a music fan it's the best investment you will ever make.
