In this video the world's leading music magazine chronicles the history of rock & roll from 1960s Brit pop to new wave of the 1980s and beyond. Accompanying commentary are over 30 performances of classic tunes from the archives of rock & roll. Artists that perform in archival shots include, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Elvis Presley, Prince, Otis Redding, the Rolling Stones, and many more. Interspersed with the footage are interviews with many of rock's superstars. Produced by the magazine that was there near the start, this is a fairly comprehensive look at the music and people who have defined this form of pop culture.
