The Family

Pete FramePete Frame started drawing his Rock Family Trees in Zigzag, Britain’s first rock magazine, which he founded in 1969.

They subsequently appeared in Sounds, NME, Melody Maker and Rolling Stone, on album sleeves and CD inserts. BBC Television broadcast two series of Rock Family Trees – plus further programmes based on his Monty Python genealogy and his Manchester United family trees.

Several volumes of his collected works have been published by Omnibus Press.
