Description - Roadkill on the Three-Chord Highway by Colin Escott

Colin Escott is famous for unearthing little-known stories behind the sometimes forgotten figures in pop music history. He is the author of several best-selling books on music, including Hank Williams: The Biography and Good Rockin' Tonight: The Sun Records Story . His new book presents an array of talents, form the famous (Roy Orbison, Perry Como) to the more obscure (Sonny Burgess, the Collins Kids). Writing in a colourful style, Escott shows how these individual stories illuminate an entire era of music history. Illustrated with wonderful period photographs, Roadkill will appeal to all fans of rock, pop and country music.
