From The Kinks and Deep Purple to Guns N' Roses and Kiss, hard rock bands express a feeling of rebellion and rejection toward all religious morals while imparting energy and passion at the same time. Hard rock roots can be traced back to the late 1960s and early 1970s with the emergence of bands such as The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Initially a spontaneous product of the blues era, hard rock has established its own patterns and has given birth to subgenres such as heavy metal and grunge. This book explores the hard rock phenomena and its most famous bands, including Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin.
