The Language of Rock and PopBook - 1996
Have you ever wondered why the Rolling Stones chose their name? The answer to that and many other questions concerning band nomenclature lies in "Band Names", which lists where the bands hailed from, when they were popular, and how they came up with their name. And that is just one of the six comprehensive chapters, subdivided alphabetically for easy reference. "What's in a Name" reveals the real names of hundreds of singers and musicians. A glossary of industry terms for both technical and slang expressions is a fitting end to this indispensable musical reference.
