     'Jimi Hendrix was not so much an element in a Periodic Table of Heavy Rock as an entire elemental spectrum in a parallel universe.'
     Welcome to The Periodic Table of Heavy Rock! Instead of hydrogen to helium, here you'll find Meatloaf to Marilyn Manson -- over 100 artists that have defined this music genre arranged following the logical ordering of The Periodic Table of Elements. And many of these elements are as unstable and reactive as their chemical counterparts. The extremes, the blurred lines and connections through shared band members, influences and styles are all mapped out here in this genius guide.
     Includes: Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, Queen, Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, Yes, Slipknot, Nirvana, ZZ Top, Sex Pistols, Meat Loaf, Queens of the Stone Age, the Doors, Pixies, Frank Zappa, Slade, Marilyn Manson, The Beatles and Spinal Tap and many, many more.
     Also includes The Periodic Table of Heavy Rock poster.
