Description

Ever swooned for the man at the mike? Then you're bound to enjoy Boyz and the Bandz, a celebration of the great all-American male pop star in all his glory and in his many manifestations. This walk down memory lane starts with the classic 1940s crooners (founding father: Sinatra) and 1950s rockers (the king: Elvis), and then goes all the way to the latest boy-band confections (most sensational: *Nsync and the Backstreet Boys). Among the lineup are some serious songsters who have truly contributed to music's history, as well as plenty of dashing dudes who have just given us lots of guilty pleasure. Full-color photos, many never before seen, remind us of the particular kind of magnetism that gave each man such an irresistible stage presence. Here are Jim Morrison with his brooding sensuality, David Cassidy with his boyish charm, Tom Jones with his macho bravado, The Monkees with their carefree goofiness, and Bruce Springsteen with his honest grit. Every generation has had its male pop idols and Boyz serves up all the favorites. Packed with fascinating factoids, the informative text that accompanies the images tracks the evolution of men in music and recalls all the hits that deserve another listen. With its square format that evokes the beloved 45 record, this nostalgic album will make a great gift for collectors, music-lovers, and anyone who remembers being entranced by these silken-voiced serenaders.
