McAvoy explores the history of Cork rock music from the early days of legendary guitarist Rory Gallagher in the 1960s, through the Finbarr Donnelly led punk era of the 1980s, to local indie legends The Frank And Walters and the irrepressible Sultans of Ping. Cork Rock explores the records, venues, personalities and culture that sprang up around rock music on Leeside. Delving deep into the stories behind seminal Cork acts such as Taste, Five Go Down To The Sea? and Microdisney, Cork Rock traces the careers of many of the city's most popular and talented musicians. Includes exclusive photographs and interviews with leading performers, managers, DJs, and promoters. ""By the end of this colorful and deeply respectful book, a portrait of the city and the quirky talents it produces emerges, giving you a new found respect for the place and its distinctive inhabitants."" - Irish Voice
