Rock & Roll A Level

The only quiz book you need

No one knows more obscure and entertaining facts about music as legendary music journalist David Hepworth.

The perfect gift for any music lover . . .

The Rock and Roll A Level is here to rescue the pop quiz from the grip of bores who know the chart position of everything and the value of nothing.
It's for the people who like pop music because it tells them so much about real life.
It's the first quiz book where the answers are as interesting as the questions.
It's the first quiz book where general knowledge matters as much as an adolescence spent reading the NME or Smash Hits.
It's a proper education.
