Family Trees

CUSTOM ROCK BAND FAMILY TREES

As a huge fan of the Pete Frame Trees, I have done many of my own over the last few years.  The first large scale tree I did was about Big Star - which Ryko used as part of it's marketing campaign in 1992.  Here is is below.

I also did a series of these for (I think) a music industry magazine called Album Network (or was it FMQB?).  Those were more about influence thank actually tracking band members.  The first one was a thread that followed Tom Jones to Billy Idol.

I'm currently roughing out three or four new trees - based on many of my favorite bands and music scenes.
