In this new study, David Pattie examines the apparent contradiction between authenticity and theatricality in the live performance of rock music, and looks at the way in which various performers have dealt with this paradox from rock music's early development in the 1960s up to the present day.
DAVID PATTIE is Reader in Drama and Theatre Studies at the University of Chester, UK. He is the author of The Complete Critical Guide to Samuel Beckett (2001), and has published widely on contemporary performance, popular culture, and popular music.
