Roots. Rock, in the beginning, sprang from everywhere – Rhythm n’ Blues and Country, romantic white ballideering and Hollywood musicals, novelties, electronic gimmickry, barbershop quartets and just plain dance music. Previously each had formed a separate stream; Rock ‚n‘ Roll snatched them up and flung them together wholesale, in every kind of bizarre and anarchic marriage. For a time there was utter chaos. Then came Elvis and, with him a whole new order. (taken from the book Rock Dreams)
Rock Dreams. The most famous book by the Belgian all-rounder (1934 until 2008) came into existence in collaboration with the Britisch rock journalist Nick Cohn. Only a year after being published it was told to have sold over 1 million copies. The illustrations show in extreme images the wildest dreams of then popular rock heroes. Peellaerts style was photorealism. His preferred art tool was oil crayon. Many of the original works are in the possession of actor Jack Nicholson. Guy Peellaert is also well known for his early erotic grown up cartoon works, Pravda and Jodelle. The very modern erotic cartoon style, similar to Barbarella, was Published by Verlag Schünemann Bremen. A very few posters have been chosen to be published at PPP Publishing in the 1960’s. Years after Rock Dreams, one of Peellaerts last prominent book “The Big Room” was realized and finally published in the late 1980’s. The artwork of Big Room was exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in the 19190’s. Several re-publications of Rock Dreams have been published over the decades in the 1980’s and 2000’s.
