Ian Wallis is a lifelong rock 'n' roll enthusiast and has been writing about the music he loves for over 20 years. His first book, The Hawk, a biography of Ronnie Hawkins, was published in Canada in 1997. He is also joint promoter of the Rockers' Reunion Party held in Reading every January, and has had a hand in organising European tours for several American rock 'n' rollers. There is no more fervent supporter of live music, and he has travelled countless thousands of miles in pursuit of 'the greatest music in the world'. This is the first serious attempt to chronicle every visit to the UK by American (and Canadian!) rock 'n' roll artists, and includes full tour itineraries, support acts, show reports, TV appearances and a wealth of other information. The author's painstaking research is augmented with illustrations of dozens of original programmes, tickets, vintage ads and atmospheric live shots -- many of them rare or previously unpublished -- to provide a complete picture of this exciting and fascinating era
