Band ID: The Ultimate Book of Band Logos

This looks like a book that I would really like to add to my personal library. Note that Gerard Huerta is included in this collection (AC-DC). From the Amazon review:

From the Rolling Stones' tongue-and-lips trademark to the Grateful Dead's lightning bolt skull to Prince's glyph, logos embody an identity and experience shared between musicians and their fans, who proudly display these graphics on T-shirts, posters, pins, stickers—even tattoos. Collecting more than 1,000 rock, hip hop, metal, pop, reggae, and country music logos from the 1960s to today, this catchy design survey captures the coolest and most powerful examples of music made visual. Including interviews with key logo artists and presenting the graphics large and over extended gatefolds, BAND ID will wow music fans and designers alike.

You can get a preview of this book at http://www.bandidbook.com/. I saw it at a design book sale at Apple Computer. The cover is textured like an amp case.
