The Trees

We currently produce a wide range of Rock Family Trees including those listed below. These are limited edition giclee prints of 100 per tree, printed on the finest DaVinci archival paper at 60x80cm. Each Rock Family Tree print is signed and numbered personally by Pete Frame, and often a personal message can also be included. Pete Frame’s Trees cover over 200 rock n roll stories. These are just some of the trees currently available.

Frame is probably the world’s foremost chronicler of rock history.
The Observer

Frame’s Rock Family Trees are a class act, a loving archival trawl
through rock’s minutiae at once absurdly detailed and fantastically well observed.
The Independent

Pete Frame is better at what he does than all the rest of us combined.
Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle

… almost lunatic scholarship …
John Peel

A true doyen recorder of the music scene  Roots

It’s not only the vital facts but the asides and gentle ramblings that make his work such a pleasure to peruse. Music Week

A lasting contribution to rock scholarship.  History of Rock

His eccentricity is as genuine as his enthusiasm.  Sounds

The sheer volume of work and detail involved must make it seem like a monumental folly to the uninitiated, but likewise make it utterly absorbing to the fanatic.  NME

Incredibly detailed and often incredibly funny. Smash Hits

There is something Shakespearian in his blunt ordinariness and decency, and in his dedication.  The Sunday Times

Get your hands on this book and you might not want to put it down.  Goldmine

A wonderful, heroic book … Frame is the only true pop lunatic to have kept his sanity and his sense of humour.  Rolling Stone

What makes Frame such an entertaining author is his endearing and perceptive turn of phrase … another dazzling achievement in scholarship from rock’s romantic chronicler. The Sunday Telegraph

Today, I would only refer to anything Pete Frame does. His is the standard to which we should all aspire.  Colin Larkin, editor, OUP Encyclopedia of Popular Music

Frame should have ended up on some New Year’s honours list for his Rock Family Trees contribution alone.  Fred Dellar, Mojo

The world’s most eminent rock genealogist.  Irish Times

Pete Frame is mad.  Time Out
