South Africa's Rock Legends
Where the Legends of South African Rock still live!
Introduction | 50s | 60s | 70s | 80s | 90s | 2000-2002
This website was established on the 1st of January 1999 to remember and archive information on the legends of South African rock (and pop and folk and... well "rock" is a very all-encompassing term, isn't it?).
Top 40 SA Rock Legends - a list of my favourites.
If your favourite South African artist isn't listed here, my apologies. Unfortunately I am no longer able to dedicate the time and energy to updating this website as I would like, so it will need to remain as a time capsule for the foreseeable future.
