2012 Holiday Gift Guide---Gifts for the musician and/or local music lover

Do you have someone on your list who lives and breathes music??  Are they fans of the local music scene or are they in a band?  Maybe they would enjoy the HOT 17--a locally published annual book about the great Columbus' music scene.  It is published by Peridosia Publishing.  2010-2011 is available for $17, and the 2009-2010 version is only $7.  Pick up a copy in store only at What the Rock?!

They may also enjoy reading about the fascinating lives of rock stars in books such as "Life" by Keith Richards, "Hey Ho Let's Go..the story of The Ramones", "The Dark Stuff--selected writings on rock music by Nick Kent" or "Please Kill Me--The Unauthorized Oral History of Punk."  All of these books make fascinating reads, and contain great pictures.  They may be available on Kindle, but a book is waaaaayyy cooler and also more portable.  "Please Kill Me" is unavailable on Kindle--because it is punk rock like that.  These are all available on our website, and many others are available in store.
