The Great Rock Bible is the ultimate reference work or companion for anyone interested in the breadth of contemporary music. More than ten years in the making The Great Rock Bible is being published in two volumes totalling more than 2000 pages! The first volume published on March 28 is the 'Old Testament' covering from 1920 to 1976. The second volume, The New Testament, covering from 1976 to the present is nearing completion and will be published in early 2025. The Great Rock Bible contains huge amounts of information – including discographies – and is designed to be incredibly useable. As well as artist listing there are detailed sections on musical genres featuring the key artists for each genre. Martin C Strong, the author, is famous for his previous works such as the Complete Rock Discography.  This is the successor to that much-loved work – but it is much more than an updated edition. Martin went back to the start and completely re-envisioned the concept to be more inclusive and to contain substantially more information – that's why it's taken ten years to arrive! This is also more than just a 'rock' book and covers all musical genres including Jazz, Disco, Ambient, Folk, Country, Reggae, Ska, World Music, Fusion, Funk, Krautrock, Glam, Blues and many, many more.
