A true "insider" of the beat scene and author of the book that spawned the major motion picture Backbeat, Alan Clayson has created a comprehensive account of the origins, history, impact, and legacy of the 1960s British pop groups. Digging deep into this fascinating period, Clayson examines the sudden emergence of beat bands, their effects on music over the last three decades, and the reasons behind their widespread resonance both within and outside the music scene.
