The local writer spent about a year talking to people who were instrumental in putting Cleveland on the rock and roll map. The spectrum of rock and roll is very broad here, he says. I wanted to find out why one place can produce Pere Ubu and the Raspberries. But even more so, he gathers recollections by the folks who made it all happen back in the day. The book isnt so much a history as it is a snapshot of a lot of different sources talking about a field they shared but didnt always know they shared.
