Beschreibung

Sometimes, the social and political involvement of rock musicians goes beyond simple songwriting and protest but instead takes the form of a spectacular concert, recording or televised event, for the purpose of fundraising and raising public awareness in various social and global issues. Strange enough, somewhat lost in these performances is the sense of rebellion, opposition, subversive attitude, or radical politics that have been associated with rock music since its inception. This book examines key charity events in rock music history by employing historical analysis and helps understand altruism in rock music as an important social and cultural trend over the years.
