A guide to the history of music-related happenings. The concept is quite simple - each page in the book presents a day of the year (from January 1 to December 31st) and lists the momentous musical events that have taken place on that day worldwide in the last 50 years - including births/deaths/marriages, No 1 singles, arrests, famous gigs, award ceremonies, classic albums, trivia (eg where bands got their names) and much more. For instance, July 12 was the day in 1954 when a 19-year-old Elvis Presley signed for Sun Records; the day in 1962 when the Rolling Stones made their live debut at the Marquee Jazz Club,the day in 1980 when Olivia Newton-John and The Electric Light Orchestra had a No 1 single with 'Xanadu'; and the day in 1986 when Boy George was arrested in London for possession of drugs. With its informative, but strongly amusing and entertaining approach, and an array of musical collectables - posters, albums covers, ticket stubs etc - illustrating the book, it is to be the must-have book for any discerning music fan.
