The term “soundtrack of our lives” is one commonly tossed around by artists, fans, critics, and historians in discussing rock ‘n’ roll’s timeless hits, spanning every subgenre, from pop to hard rock, heavy metal to new wave. In the pages of Behind the Boards III: The Making of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s Greatest Records Revealed,” the first definitive rock record-producers’ anthology of its kind, readers are taken inside the studio one final time, into the creation of the generations of classic records that collectively make up that soundtrack of our lives.
