Description
The Definitive Guide to the Most Talked About Musical Performances of the Past Century. Woodstock. The Isle of Wight. Bowie at the Hammersmith Odeon, 1972. Nirvana at Reading, 1992. Gigs that changed the face of music and the very foundations of popular culture. Now, leading rock journalist Mark Paytress recreates the sights, smells, and sounds of the 20th Century's most talked about moments in the history of live music, debunking myths and recreating the bands' --and the fans'--experiences. There's something here for every musical taste-- from Benny Goodman at Carnegie Hall in 1938, to Bob Dylan, to Live Aid. Complete with amazing photographs that capture the essence of these now legendary shows, this is a true compendium for any music fan or anybody who's ever thought, "I wonder what it was like to be there?"
