PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 7, 2011 - New from Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Fort Worth’s Rock and Roll Roots by local author Mark A. Nobles. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images, providing readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that helped shape their community.

On the evening of February 9, 1964, Ed Sullivan introduced the Beatles to America. Across the country, teens were glued to their TV sets and witnessed a turning point in rock and roll history. Vibrant and creative teen scenes sprang up all across the country.

The scene in Fort Worth, Texas produced an exceptional burst of creativity in songwriting and musicianship. Weekend concerts and battles of the bands drew thousands of fans. Primitive teen recordings were pressed into 45s and received radio airplay in rotation with national acts.

Local television shows featured live bands. Fashions changed with go-go girls’ skirts growing shorter; long hair became the style for women and men; and the seeds of the counterculture were planted and flourished. The music of this generation birthed every rock subgenre for the next 40 years (acid rock, heavy metal, punk, new wave, grunge), and today’s musicians still reach back to these recordings for inspiration.

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
