Monograph of photographs by Rhona Bitner. Foreword by Iggy Pop. Texts by Natalie Bell, Greil Marcus, and Jon Hammer with an afterword by Jason Moran. Includes biographies and a locations list. "Prompted by the closing of New York’s famed CBGB, Rhona Bitner embarked on a thirteen-year journey to photograph 403 venues across twenty-six states and eighty-nine cities—the studios, concert halls, arenas, high schools, bars, ballrooms, prisons, and fields where the most memorable songs were inspired, recorded, performed, and listened to. Close to 300 of those photographs are included in this book." -- publisher's statement.
