A fascinating look into the world of music and what those great musicians have tucked away in their garages.

It is a perfect gift for anybody that loves cars and music - a new book that is about to hit the shelves just in time for Christmas. 

Cars and rock ‘n roll have always gone hand in hand. Whether it’s a garage band piling into some decrepit rig to get to the next gig or a killer guitar riff blasting from a Mustang, rock ‘n roll keeps us moving when we’re behind the wheel.

It’s no surprise, then, that some of the music from the UKs greatest musicians are featured in this new title. 

Names famous for their musical talent also are serious car guys.

The likes of Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Chris Martin, Brian Johnson (ACDC) and Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac) are all featured along with many other great musicians such as Jimmie Vaughn (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Billy Joel, J Geils, Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), and others.

All as passionate about their motors as they are about music Rockin Garages illustrates the incredible collections that these rock stars keep in their garages. Hot rods, customs, muscle cars, motorcycles, race cars, and sports cars—the variety of vehicles is as eclectic as rock ‘n roll itself.

Rockin’ Garages showcases top performers, their cars, and their garages. Authors Tom Cotter and Ken Gross profile each musician after spending hours and days with each one to reveal an in-depth story behind their moto-lust and what drives their car collecting. Each profile is complemented by Michael Alan Ross’ top-notch photography. Rockin’ Garages puts you behind the wheel with some of your favorite musicians.
