Lights, Camera, Soundtracks surveys over 50 years of rock 'n' roll movies, musicals and performance films. The book identifies the top guns involved in each film, provides a storyline, rates the film, and reviews its soundtrack. From pop and rock musicals, like the classic Elvis Presley vehicle Jailhouse Rock and the recent Tenacious D showpiece The Pick of Destiny, to performance films and documentaries like Woodstock and Dig!, and the bumping bootilicious jams of the blaxploitation genre, all manner of rock and popular music film is here. And special mention is made of the rock and pop luminaries who have written film scores, such as Peter Gabriel, Nick Cave and Ry Cooder. This is the ultimate, indispensable book for film and music lovers alike.
