A history of rock music mapped out on the circuit board of a guitar amplifier.
Our Rock and Roll Love Blueprint celebrates over 1400 musicians, artists, songwriters and producers who have been pivotal to the evolution of the sprawling genre that is rock music. From the early debt owed to blues, gospel, jazz and country performers like Ma Rainey, Lead Belly, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Woody Guthrie who paved the way for rock and roll pioneers like Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Elvis who in turn inspired a generation including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and The Velvet Underground and continue to inspire musicians today like The White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys and St Vincent.
The print pays homage to the music and artists that laid the foundation for rock and roll, including Memphis and Delta blues (W.C. Handy, Memphis Minnie, Lead Belly, Robert Johnson), gospel (Sister Rosetta Tharpe), country (Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family), folk (Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger), boogie-woogie (Fats Domino), Chicago blues (Muddy Waters, B. B. King), doo-wop (The Drifters, The Teenagers) and jump blues (Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris).
