UNCOMMON PEOPLE The Rise and Fall of the Rock Stars

by | Read by Matthew Lloyd Davies

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Everything about this project is ideal for audiobook fans. The format--40 chapters, each highlighting a day in rock history between 1955 and 1995--allows for episodic listening. Narrator Matthew Lloyd Davies's no-frills reading is the ideal counterbalance to the exuberance, recklessness, and tragedy portrayed in each story. And the content, written by rock journalist David Hepworth, is well researched and well written. This eulogy to rock stars--and to the music business, as well--will make some listeners feel their own mortality while others will be fascinated by these extinct near-mythical creatures who were obsessed with sex, hair, shoes, and music.
