A disciplined study that reveals the many contributions of Jews throughout the history of rock 'n' roll.
"Leiber and Stoller are perhaps the most celebrated (Rock 'n' Roll Jews) along with Phil Spector, but there have been others who have contributed greatly. Michael Billig examines that influence through the world of luminaries like Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Carole King and Lou Reed."—Nottingham Evening Post
"This is a fine book. The author guides readers behind the familiar heroes of rock n' roll to trailblazers who helped make their success possible."—Journal of Religion and Popular Culture
