The Further Illustrated Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock 'n' Roll

"sludge me no sludge no more Alright sledgehammer guitar!"
A sample.

Someone added *a lot* of illuminating margin annotations to the LSU library's copy of the THE ROLLING STONE ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF ROCK 'N' ROLL. This might be some sort of Timecube-style reading, the work of a pop culture-obsessed Straussian or just maybe the catharsis of a graduate student in the midst of a nervous breakdown.

Either way, I think there is something important to be gleaned here.

Scroll over the slideshow below and click "Show Info" for my commentary.

If the slideshow doesn't work for you, see the whole set of photos on Flickr.
