The Rock Snob*s Dictionary
An Essential Lexicon of Rockological KnowledgeBook - 2005
We've all been there--trapped in a conversation with smarty-pants music fiends, not wanting to let on that we haven't the slightest idea what they're talking about. This book is here to define every single sacred totem of rock fandom's know-it-all fraternity. The dictionary is the brainchild of Vanity Fair writers Kamp and Daly, who originally devised it as a short feature in the magazine's music issue. The response was so great (and grateful) that the feature became a running series, and now it's been expanded into a book that features new material and supplements. The book is as funny as it is informative, for it does something that no previous rock reference has dared to do: not take rock fandom so darned seriously.
