Bursting with key facts and ephemera from seven decades of mostly loud music, rock writer and academic Dr Eamonn Forde’s sharp and absurdly funny Bluffer's Guide to Rock will provide musical bluffers with all the knowledge and insights needed to hold their own in any rock-centric situation.

The author

Dr Eamonn Forde is an enormously unmusical person, but being tone deaf and having no sense of rhythm hasn’t stopped him obsessing over rock music – almost as if it would give him a profound mastery of the industry by proxy. In the 1990s he embarked on a PhD of the music press (yes, really) and from there he has carved out something vaguely resembling a career as a rock writer and critic.
