Liverpool - Wondrous Place by Paul Du Noyer

Book Description

No other city in the world is as well known or loved for its vibrant and definitive musical history as Liverpool. In "2002, Guinness World Records": British Hit Singles voted Liverpool 'World Capital of Pop' recognising that Liverpool's homegrown talent has produced more number one hit singles per capita than anywhere else in the world. In 2008, Liverpool will celebrate its crown as European Capital of Culture. Paul Du Noyer's acclaimed book takes us on a tour of the rich musical history of his hometown, from the world-famous Cavern Club in Mathew Street, host to the Beatles' debut performance in 1961, to the city's musical future with contemporary bands like The Zutons. Featuring interviews with key figures of the music scene, this book reveals the creative impulse behind Britain's most musical city. Find out why Liverpool is not just a place where music happens. The city is the reason music happens.
