Jeff Bridges hosts the special, which spans from Elvis' earliest Sun Studios recording sessions in the '50s, to the rise of the album-as-concept in the freewheeling '60s, through the album-oriented music styles that dominated the '70s, and beyond. Interviews include Mary J. Blige, Moby, Smokey Robinson, Elvis Costello, Art Garfunkel, Stevie Wonder, Chuck D (Public Enemy), Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal (No Doubt), Henry Rollins, Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), Fred Schneider (The B-52's), Elliott Smith, Liz Phair, Robby Krieger (The Doors), Hanson, Carole King, Alice Cooper, James Taylor, Kid Rock, Sinead O'Connor, Sammy Hagar, Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran), Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick), Slash (Guns N Roses), and Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads), among others. To select the "100 Greatest Albums of Rock & Roll" of all time, VH1 sent ballots to more than 500 musicians and rock journalists. Among those artists casting their votes were Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, Neil Finn (Crowded House), Roberta Flack, Art Garfunkel, Wyclef Jean, Carole King, Simon LeBon and Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran), Kate Pierson and Fred Schneider (The B-52s), The Mamas & the Papas' Michelle Phillips, Britney Spears, No Doubt's Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal, and Sly Stone.
