Focusing on the first twenty-five years (1951-1976) of rock music in the nation’s capital, author Mark Opsasnick skillfully combines overviews of the city’s flourishing nightclub and teen club scenes of the fifties, sixties, and seventies with detailed coverage of local bands and musicians including such greats as the Cherry People, the Fallen Angels, Roy Buchanan, Jack Casady, Roy Clark, Danny Gatton, Nils Lofgren, Punky Meadows, and Link Wray. A unique and fascinating study, CAPITOL ROCK is certain to captivate any fan of rock and roll music.
