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?"
