This book is well worth the price for just the flyers alone. It is thick and large and in full exploding rock and roll color!! Many good Los Angeles bands are featured (Janes Addiction), and a few that never broke big but are still around (Rebel Rebel), and that is what makes this book the bomb. A Box Set CD and DVD companion will be out in 2005, featuring all the bands in the book. This book lets everyone in on the lifestyle that was the Sunset Strip during that time the 80's to 1990. I'm sorry I hadn't thought of the Idea first!!!

I knew this book would be cool, but after opening it I really felt like I was living on The Sunset Strip all over again... I had to get my husband to go in my storage and bust out my Guns and Roses T-Shirt and my studded belt....

I first came across the Dvd under the same name "Hollywood Rocks" last year. If you are a true fan of the 1980's Glam and Hair metal scene from Los Angeles then this set is definately for you. The book shows rare pictues of all the different bands from that era. Some other books I have seen that are similar only focus on the really popular bands from that scene ( Poison, Warrant, Ratt, ect) This book shows and tells about so many more. Bands you may have never heard of from back then that had a strong local following but never really took off or got signed. There's also a great part that shows the band flyers from back then that those guys used to pass out. Overall a great book for any die hard Hair Metal fan !

Great Pictures of some of the great forgotten bands of the 80s. This book is a must for people who lived or was in a band through the era and for people who would love to know more on those underground Glam Sleaze Bands. Well worth it.

This book is the best way I have found to try to explain to people what it was like - what it felt like, sounded like, smelled like - to be in downtown Hollywood or on Hollywood Blvd during the mid to late 80s. Members of a band going down the street with a handfull of flyers and a staple gun plastering their images all over evey telephone pole or vacant place only to have another band come along 30 minutes later and cover it all up with THEIR flyers... going into the clothing and leather shops for spandex, studded belts, wristbands, bandannas, and shades - it was an amazing time and place that will never be again, but for those who were there even for a moment it will live forever, and for those who never got there, this book well help to to at least understand a little bit what it was like. I still HAVE some of the flyers in this book....

This book is a top notch reference guide to the 80's and early 90's rock scene in Los Angeles, California. The amount of research that was done here is very impressive. There's a section of the book dedicated to each of the main Sunset Strip clubs as well as a few clubs that were off the Strip such as The Troubador and The Country Club. Excellent photos as well! Highly recommended if you're an 80's hard rock fan like I am.

This books lived up to my expectations and then some. All of the bands you'd expect to see included, are. The photographs are stellar with many surprises on each page. I also purchased the Hollywood Rocks 4 cd set to accompany this book. I'd recommend it also.

Whether you call it hair metal, glam metal or by some other name, the Hollywood rock sound in the 1980's was the decade's most vibrant and exciting musical scene. Motley Crue, Great White, Poison, Guns n' Roses and L.A. Guns were just a few of the bands from this scene to dominate the charts, and their history (and that of dozens of lesser-known acts) are documented visually in Hollywood Rocks.

The book is a wonderfully compiled visual history of the bands that put the Sunset Strip hard rock sound on the map. There are tons of publicity photos, flyers, ticket stubs, and other great images on just about every band to play the Strip. I thought I had a pretty good handle on that scene's bands, but there are so many bands in this book that I had never even heard of. It's really a treasure trove of hair metal history.

Hollywood Rocks is a near-perfect visual history of the hair metal era, and one that belongs on the bookshelf (or coffee table) of any die-hard fan of that kind of music. Between this book and the Hollywood Rocks: Audio Companion box set, you'll be reliving the 80's glory days in no time.
