Description - The Periodic Table of HEAVY ROCK by Ian Gittins
'Jimi Hendrix was not so much an element in a Periodic Table of Heavy Rock as an entire elemental spectrum in a parallel universe.'
Welcome to The Periodic Table of Heavy Rock! Instead of hydrogen to helium, here you'll find Smashing Pumpkins to Spinal Tap - 118 artists that have defined this music genre arranged following the logical ordering of The Periodic Table of Elements.

Grunge rock through to hardcore, blues rock, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, arena rock, glam rock and glam metal, punk rock, blues metal, 80s new wave, comedy metal, thrash, death, intelligent AND nu-metal are all represented here.
