)-- Rock Trees: The Beatles, Volume 1 – the Paul McCartney Tree examines how 1,550 bands and artists are musically “related” to The Beatles using the theory of Six Degrees of Separation. Below is the review for the book recently published on the Midwest Book Review’s web site:
“Rock Trees: The Beatles Volume 1: The Paul McCartney Tree is not a standard, narrative-style nonfiction book. Instead, it is a "music genealogy" that dissembles the connections between 1,550 bands and artists to beloved rock icons The Beatles, utilizing the theory of six degrees of separation. The connections between these songs - some of which are widely known, many more of which are not - may potentially lead connoisseurs of The Beatles to experience new songs and artists that captivate their fancy, and offer an intriguing perspective on the complex interplays of popular music. Unique, articulate, and supplemented by an index, Rock Trees: The Beatles Volume 1 will prove especially interesting to Beatles fans!”
