About the Author

Michael Hicks, a professor of music at Brigham Young University, is the author of Mormonism and Music: A History.


"A grammar book loaded with insights and details of which, betcha, even the most hard-core rocker is oblivious." -- Dave McElfresh, Goldmine "[An] engrossing and truly educational work that treats its subject seriously while maintaining the sense of adventure that went into the sound's creation." -- Discoveries "A delightful book, covering selected facets of a large musical era in considerable and highly readable detail." -- Frank Oglesbee, Communication Booknotes Quarterly ADVANCE PRAISE "A thoughtful, compelling, and stimulating addition to the literature of popular music studies. Hicks engages the musical details of rock music exceptionally well, accounting for their production and interpreting their significance. We need more such work." --Robert Walser, author of Running with the Devil: Power, Gender, and Madness in Heavy Metal Music "A fresh and fascinating account of an important body of American music... Hicks's book rings true, much more than anything else I've read on the subject." --Charles Hamm, author of Putting Popular Music in Its Place
