The Modern Myth of Rock & Roll

Wayne Wise writes for the Pittsburg Post-Gazette about Steven Hyden’s new book, Twilight of the Gods: A Journey to the End of Classic Rock.

Hyden uses Joseph Campbell’s the Hero’s Journey structure to tell the story of rock stars, the ones who grew old with the industry and the ones who didn’t.

The book also discusses the presence of important mythological elements in rock music and figures.
