Description

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.

Author Biography

He is the author of Tattooed on Their Tongues: Journeys through the Backrooms of American Music and Hank Williams: The Biography, and coauthor of Hank Williams: Snapshots from the Lost Highway, and Good Rockin' Tonight: The Sun Records Story. He has annotated over 500 recordings, and has won numerous awards for his writing, including a Grammy for historic documentation and an Lifetime Achievement Award from the ARSC (Association for Recorded Sound Collections), a nonprofit group dedicated to preserving the history of recorded sound.
