This is Richard’s second book about Rock’n’Roll in Russia. His first was titled Russia’n’Roll and was published in 2016.
Similar to Russia’n’Roll, Rock’n’Roll Russia! by Richard Hume reads like a love letter to classic rock’n’roll.
Richard’s collection of work tells the stories of legends such as Alan Freed, Carl Perkins, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino, Sharon Sheeley, the Everly Brothers, Connie Francis, Del Shannon, Tommy Steele, Ricky Nelson and Rose Maddox.
In addition, Richard details – and sometimes leads the charge on the Russian scene, proving that rock’n’roll is not a purely Western phenomenon.
Comprised of Richard’s columns from 2015-2017 published in Maggie’s Blue Suede News, the U.K.’s top rock magazine. This collection tells the great stories of truly special people; hugely enjoyable for anyone, but especially those who love rock’n’roll.
