Rock and Roll Explorer Guide to San Francisco and the Bay Area


Explore the groovy sites Golden Gate City’s rock history. Perhaps best known for the ‘60s psychedelic scene exemplified by the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin, the Bay Area’s rock & roll history twists and turns like Lombard Street itself. San Francisco is where the Beatles played their final concert, where the Clash recorded much of their second album; where a drug-addled Keith Moon passed out during a concert by the Who only to be replaced behind the drum kit by an eager fan. The rock equivalent of Manifest Destiny carried wave upon wave of young musicians in search of fame, fortune and the great lost chord to Golden Gate City. San Francisco and the Bay Area have collectively produced countless key figures in rock & roll, from musicians to journalists to entrepreneurs. The modern concept of the vast outdoor rock festival took root in and around San Francisco. Rock and roll is baked into the city’s culture and story to this day. This book will be a guide to the places that shaped the local scene and world-famous sound: where music makers lived, rocked, performed, recorded, met, broke up, and more. Geography will include San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and neighboring communities.
