Robbie Robertson, who famously played guitar in The Band, will release his first book Legends, Icons & Rebels: Music That Changed The World on Oct. 8.
Legends, Icons & Rebels will profile a number of influential bands and artists throughout music history. Some of featured artists include Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder and more. Robbie Robertson also collaborated with fellow music industry veterans Jim Guerinot, Sebastian Robertson and Jared Levine to help write the book.
According to the authors, “the book rose out of our lifelong love for music and a desire to share this deep connection with our children and grandchildren. By presenting some of the greatest musical artists of all time, we hope to lay a foundation for families to experience the pure joy that can only come from one source … Music.”
The book will also come with two CDs worth of material from the various artists featured.
Legends, Icons & Rebels: Music That Changed The World is out Oct. 8 via Tundra Books.
