BOOK CLUB: I WANT MY MTV
whatever happened to all the video stars?
In the 600-page account, ex-Blender editors Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum take us on a wild trip down MTV memory lane, featuring over 400 interviews with everyone from the company's founders to Def Leppard to New Order.
Filled with little-known facts ($1 actually saved MTV from bankruptcy), iconic moments (Rum DMC and The Beastie Boys "smuggled" rap onto the air), and first impressions of the station from rockstars themselves, this cool history makes us '80s and '90s kids totally nostalgic- and a little sad- for the glory days of the station.
The book hits stores later this week, just in time for the channel's 30th anniversary. Until then, get your old-school MTV fix below.
