I love researching the people behind the music.

The meteoric rise and inevitable splintering of many famous rock bands continues to be a story embedded in American culture. In each case, the wives and girlfriends of the band members can heal or create the divisions that tear bands apart.

Author Linda Gould’s new novel “Handmaidens of Rock” returns to the classic rock era of the ‘60s and ‘70s and follows the formation, drama, and fallout surrounding the rise of a group of rock stars unprepared for fame.

“Few modern bands ever become as well known as many classic rock bands remain to this day, like The Beatles,” Gould said. “I love researching the people behind the music and exploring the role that women had in these famous bands, and putting that into my characters.”

“Handmaidens of Rock” is a compelling tale for any lover of music or rock, or for a baby-boomer looking for a tale that harkens back to a different time in America.
