The book MTV Who's Who In Rock Video, by John Tobler and Maxim Jakubowski, was published in 1984. It was available for purchase through an offer from an MTV television commercial during that year. The book is packed with stories and photos of the original MTV VJs (Mark Goodman, Nina Blackwood, Martha Quinn, Alan Hunter and the late J J Jackson) and the music video artists of that time. There are also pages devoted to some of the singers and bands. Included are Duran Duran, the Beatles, Def Leppard, Culture Club, Blondie, John (then known as Cougar) Mellencamp, The Doors, INXS, Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd, Van Halen, the Who, Queen and many more. There is also a cross reference of the then current video directors, yours truly included.
