Mods, Rockers, and the Music of the British Invasion.

Mods, Rockers, and the Music of the British Invasion

The development of British invasion rock music is chronicled from the 1960s to modern times, documenting tensions between two very different resort communities--the Mods and the Rockers. Each group claimed its own culture and style--but it was the Rockers that entered America with the Beatles in 1964, leading a generation of vast musical change fueled by British influences. Any library strong in rock music history needs this.
