The First Rock Star? Paganini v. Liszt

October 22, 2011

NPR has just released an article declaring Liszt as the first Rock star.  I beg to differ, as Paganini got started earlier and established himself sooner and was way way more bad-ass.  Paganini was probably more Goth or Metal, if you want to split hairs. 

Regardless of my opinion, read both articles and decide who was the first Rock star.
