"The Clash, the Kinks, the Rolling Stones… all legends who will stand the test of time, forever etched into the fabric of rock god history. But what about the musicians who fell through the cracks, those who were on the cusp of stardom but never quite made it? In his new book, Lost Rockers, writer and director Steven Blush explores exactly this. Having dedicated his life to chronicling the lives of some of the greatest musicians in the world, Steven has now turned his attention to commemorating those for whom the stars never quite aligned, and in doing so deconstructs the very meaning of fame." —i-D
