Rock 'n roll is America's all-time leading cultural export, but half of the classic rock sound was born across the pond. Musician, journalist, and writer Dave Hunter's book charts the forty-plus year confluence of British industrial ingenuity and popular culture that grew a minor offshore industry into a true world leader. Art inspired engineering, engineering influenced art, and, as both evolved at breakneck speed, the finest amplifiers in the world were devised and refined on the British Isles. Hunter's original account provides a ground-level perspective of the simultaneous development of an adolescent audio industry and a nascent musical style, documenting their twin struggle to find their footing and stride forward. Rich with behind-the-scenes accounts and high-resolution images of the era's greatest (and highly collectible) amplifiers, many of which have never been told or seen before. 175 pp.
