Every Ticket Tells A Story – Mark Baxter & Stuart Deabill
Acclaimed authors Mark Baxter and Stuart Deabill have produced this brand new book, Every Ticket Tells A Story which asks over 60 contributors from across the arts, to share their favourite live music tale of a gig, concert or festival from the last seven decades.
Musician Mick Talbot (ex Dexys/Style Council) talks about seeing Dr. Feelgood at the height of their popularity. Rhoda Dakar (Bodysnatchers/Specials) writes about seeing the New York Dolls at the legendary clothes shop, Biba. Photographer Gered Mankowitz picks Bob Marley at the Rainbow as his legendary show and Darren Russell was in Havana when Manic Street Preachers played for Fidel Castro! Musician and writer Geoff Deane offers his hilarious take on seeing The Clash in a small venue, that was bib on action, in 1979. Film and TV actor Johnny Harris saw The Stone Roses at a tiny venue in London and Lorraine Stanley (Eastenders) speaks about her Glastonbury experience.
Music industry icon Andrew Loog Oldham and many others from the arts and the street, relay their memories of watching the likes of Bill Haley, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Clash, The Jam, Sex Pistols, The Who, Curtis Mayfield, Take That, Frank Sinatra, Led Zeppelin, Ella Fitzgerald, Kylie, Liam Gallagher, Cypress Hill, Paul Weller amongst many others.
Every story is a snapshot of a time and place when a ticket was a paper exchange for a night of wonder and excitement.
