The end of rock
Cover photograph: Stanley Green
Cover design: Anne Martel
It is not a book about bands but rather about their death, about that of rock, its agonies as well as its rebirths, its impostures as well as its truths. It is about streets, spells, divorces and reunions.
We meet ghosts, unless they are fantasies. Anonymous too, those who have damaged ears and burned feet for having danced too much, and often too much searched.
The end of rock was as much the end of idols as the product of our emancipation. Of these figures made by a society of the image, overinvested by the frustration of our ordinary lives to whom they had given the desire for the extraordinary. Of those pathetic figures who weren't what they seemed to be, or what we wanted them to be.
