Description

The aim of this book is to provide a complete handbook of information and opinion about the history of the music of the 1980s. There are over 1000 entries on the bands, musicians, songwriters, producers and record labels of this decade, everyone who had any significant impact on the development of rock and pop music. From the new romantics who colourfully filled the gap left by punk, to the stadium acts who provided a launch pad for Live Aid, from bands who will be remembered as quintessential eighties artists, such as Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Adam Ant, George Michael and Madonna, to others who flourished only briefly, this encyclopaedia aims to answer any query about any aspect of 80s music.show more
