Books are probably your first refuge for comfort, if you’re on this website, but music is another popular place for us to turn for a boost.
Whether that describes you or someone for whom you’re looking for a holiday gift, you might want to check out a new book from Doug Brod.
Brod, the former editor in chief of SPIN and TV Guide, recently released They Just Seem a Little Weird: How KISS, Cheap Trick, Aerosmith, and Starz Remade Rock and Roll.
The titular remaking of rock and roll focuses on how these groups turned gigs into full-on performances and encouraged the genre to take itself just a little less seriously.
Lit Hub has an excerpt from They Just Seem a Little Weird: How KISS, Cheap Trick, Aerosmith, and Starz Remade Rock and Roll, courtesy of its publisher, for your enjoyment.
