About the book:

America Through the Eyes of a Rock and Roll TravelerAmerica Through the Eyes of a Rock and Roll Traveler

When you think of New York City, do you imagine a great view from the Empire State Building -- or late nights at CBGBs?

In L.A., do you want to tour the Queen Mary -- or visit the landmark where Janis Joplin hit Jim Morrison over the head with a bottle of Southern Comfort?

Would you rather go to New Orleans to see Jackson Square -- or catch B.B. King during Jazz Fest?

Get Ready for the Ultimate Road Trip!

Rock & Roll Traveler USA is the ultimate road-trip reference. Riveting, entertaining, and packed with never-before-seen photographs, this guide covers the nation's famous (and not-so-famous) rock landmarks, plus all the hot spots in U.S. music today. From New York to L.A., from Robert Johnson's Mississippi Delta to Kurt Cobain's Seattle, discover an American landscape you'll find nowhere else.

Momentous Gigs The Beatles invade America, Elvis goes Vegas, the Band has a last waltz, the Sex Pistols storm the South.

Pop Shrines The Chelsea Hotel, Whisky A Go Go, Threadgill's, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Motown, and -- the mother ship -- Graceland.

Unruly Rockers Where Led Zeppelin, Jim Morrison, the Who, and other big stars of bad behavior lived fast, died young, and let it all hang out.

Sound Suppliers Record Stores (new, used, and vinyl), recording studios, and the best local clubs for catching a pop revolution in progress.

Funky Kitchens Athens' Weaver D's (where soul food is "automatic for the people"), Tupelo's Elvis-inspired McDonald's, Barney's Beanery in L.A., and other eats with ambience.

Great Photos One-of-a-kind pictures shot by local photographers: the first ever Foo Fighters gig (at Portland's Satyricon), the Beastie Boys playing b-ball with the Knicks, Fugazi jamming at the Washington Monument, and more.
