She's A Rebel
The History of Women in Rock & Roll
Blackwell North Amer
She's A Rebel is an impassioned spirited retelling of rock & roll history and essential reading for all fans of popular music. Arranged in reader-friendly chronological order, Rebel charts a half-century of women performers - the early R&B singers of the 1950s (such as Big Mama Thornton, who recorded "Hound Dog" before Elvis); the girl groups, Motown acts, folksingers, and rock chicks of the '60s; the punk rebels and pop divas of the '70s; and the all-girl bands, rappers, hip-hop performers, and riot girls who shook the music world from the 1980s into the new century.
This expanded edition of Gillian G. Gaar's critically acclaimed, breakthrough book includes new chapters on the major artists of the last decade, stunning black-and-white photographs, and an insider's look at the music industry and the emerging power of women rock and pop stars (as well as the women working "behind the scenes"). Gaar profiles dozens of new performers - Courtney Love, Lauryn Hill, Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill, Kim Gordon, Mariah Carey, Sarah McLachlan, Ani DiFranco, Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morrisette, Lucinda Williams, Destiny's Child, Bjork, and many others - and captures the amazing expanse of women's voices and talent in the music world.
