Ever since WSM-AM radio announcer David Cobb first called it the qMusic Cityq back in 1950, Nashville has been known as the center of the country music universe. While some may also be familiar with Nashville for its gospel and CCR industry, few recognize the Music City as a hotbed of rock 'n' roll, rap, and blues music. Since the mid-1970s, when indie rock pioneer R. Stevie Moore released his self-produced Phonography album, a diverse and creative rock music scene has developed in the Music City. From Jason a the Scorchers, the White Animals, and Afrikan Dreamland to Jeff the Brotherhood and the Kings of Leon, there can be no doubt that Nashville rocks! The Other Side of Nashville is an incomplete history and discography of the Nashville rock underground circa 1976-2006. Documenting the growth and evolution of the Music City's non-country music scene, The Other Side of Nashville includes entries over 500 artists, and features over 100 interviews and album reviews, as well as comments and insight from the qReverend of Rock 'n' Roll, q Rev. Keith A. Gordon. An award-winning music journalist with decades of experience, Rev. Keith A. Gordon was there for the qbig bangq moment of Nashville's fledgling rock scene, and spent 30 years documenting and championing Music City rockers in both local rags like The Metro, the Nashville Scene, and the Nashville Intelligence Report, as well as national publications like Creem, Rolling Stone, and High Times. Gordon is the author or co-author of seven books on music, is a former contributor to the All Music Guide website and book series, and is currently the Blues Guide for About.com.Gordon is the author or co-author of seven books on music, is a former contributor to the All Music Guide website and book series, and is currently the Blues Guide for About.com.
