Product Description

Review

almost lunatic scholarship' John Peel 'Frame is probably the world's foremost chronicler of rock history' The Observer 'Frame's Rock Family Trees are a class act, a loving archival trawl through rock's minutiae at one absurdly detailed and fantastically well observed.' The Independent

About the Author

Pete Frame was born in Luton, Bedfordshire in 1942. In the early Seventies he started Zigzag, a magazine he edited and wrote for (on and off) for several years. Since 1979, however, he has managed to scratch a living off his pen. His Rock Family Trees have appeared in Melody Maker, NME, Sounds, Rolling Stone, Q, Vox and numerous other publications; in tour programmes; and on record sleeves. He now lives in the Scottish Highlands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Framing the Family Tree 14 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's been thirteen long years since the indefatigable Pete Frame delivered his last magnificent collection of painstaking research in More Rock Family Trees, and I am delighted that he has now published a fifth volume. From the moment the first book appeared back in 1980, it was obvious that here was a unique and genius new way to study the comings and goings of great rock bands.
For this latest anthology, Frame has revisited some old trees, redrawing a number of them both to update information and also simplify a few. These include Fleetwood Mac, Roxy Music (a vast improvement on the original), and the Yes/ELP tree. But there are plenty of newcomers; just take a look at the trees featuring Suede, Creation Records and the Seattle grunge scene for starters.
Then there are trees featuring rock music stalwarts like Elton John, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Paul McCartney and many others.
The biggest trees, spread over four pages each are those devoted to the Allman Brothers Band and US surf music. But by far the most complex is that for Fairport Convention. Completely redrawn from the original in the first book, it is a demonstration of the utter devotion that Frame pours into his work.
If one criticism can be made it is that in the past there has been a lack of trees featuring black musicians. Not anymore as this book features both R&B vocal legends the Drifters, and jazz genius Miles Davis.
As Frame turns seventy in 2012, one has to speculate on how much longer he will continue to produce these trees, but the book does contain a couple of examples of work from former NME journalist Paul Barber whom Frame has hailed as his natural successor so it looks as if this wonderful series is in safe hands for the foreseeable future!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another FABULOUS Rock Family Trees book! 11 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've followed Pete Frame's Rock Family Trees since they were first published in the late great ZigZag magazine in the early 70s. I have the first two book compilations and just recently was delighted to see a listing for a third - Even More Rock Family Trees. These books are among the best music history publications I have ever seen, fascinating and fun to read. Hat's off to Pete Frame for yet another brilliant installment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book 2 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've purchased a couple of versions (updates) of this book over the years, and still get hours of pleasure reading them. It's almost addictive in that you start reading one "tree" then link to many others, I’ve learned so much from these books over the years. These should be compulsory purchase for anyone who is interested in the music industry.

Would love to see a “session musician” version, although that may be a bit of a challenge to compile?
