Uncommon People notes the rise and fall of rock stars.  The book focuses on rock stars from 1955-1995 and includes yearly playlists. It talks about the first Rockstar – Little Richard. The first Rock Idol – Elvis Presley. The Bad Boy – Jerry Lee Lewis.  The Good Boy – Buddy Holly.  Also included are bios on Ringo Starr, Mick Jagger, Kurt Cobain, Elton John and Michael Jackson – to name a few.  Each of the artists/rockstars has a story about their life and career and was a lot of fun to read about these “uncommon” people who became Rock Stars and have solidified such a place in Pop Culture.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
