The story of any great band includes walk-on parts by scores of musicians who left the picture before fame and fortune came calling. And all diehard fans relish the stories of the times before the Big Time, following the evolving line-ups of their favourite acts - the name changes, the false starts, the missed chances and the lucky breaks. Rock Connexions picks through the past fifty years to bring you the histories of some of the biggest names in music. Throughout the book, colourful timelines and nodal mapping plots the changing line-ups of all rock 'n' roll's most significant, influential and memorable bands.
