the blueprint is like a family tree of rock music and it features names that have been pivotal to the evolution of the genre. from the early debt owed to blues, gospel, jazz and country performers such as ma rainey, lead belly, robert johnson, sister rosetta tharpe and woody guthrie who paved the way for rock and roll pioneers like chuck berry, little richard and elvis. who in turn inspired a generation including the beatles, the rolling stones, the beach boys, janis joplin, bob dylan, jimi hendrix and the velvet underground. and who continue to inspire musicians today, namely radiohead, the white stripes, arctic monkeys and st. vincent.

the print weaves its way through many sub-genres including heavy metal, prog rock, punk, post-punk, indie, alternative, riot grrrl, psych and folk. it also celebrates the places that were focal points for new ‘scenes’ (cavern club and merseybeat, the gaslight cafe and greenwich village folk scene, CBGB and punk, and eric’s and post-punk), the designers and artists who influenced the aesthetics (hipgnosis and pink floyd, jamie reid and sex pistols, andy warhol and the velvet underground) and the inventors of rock’s essential musical instruments (leo fender, les paul, jim marshall, dick denney).
