Subject: Rock slang responses.

Thanks to all who responded to my query regarding resources for rock 'n roll
slang. I found two very helpful books

THE DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN POP/ROCK
Arnold Shaw
Schirmer Books, 1982

and

ROCKSPEAK
compiled by Tom Hibbert
Putnam Publishing, 1983

Many of you recommended J.E. Lighter's recently published and almost
definitive slang book RANDOM HOUSE HISTORICAL DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN SLANG.
 However, I also found Stephen Glazier's new book WORD MENU, also published
by Random House in 1992 helpful.

I also accessed Internet newsgroups and got some interesting (if not terribly
useful) responses.

Thanks again for your many responses.
