I Was There Summary


I Was There: Gigs That Changed the World by Mark Paytress

A stunning companion to over a century of live music, this book is a long overdue and unique testament to once-in-a-lifetime, never beaten, momentous music concerts. You can now, finally, be up at the front with the photographers and fans at some of the greatest ever gigs. Join them at 101 live shows that changed the world and helped shape popular culture as we know it. From John Lennon to James Brown, Billie Holiday to Iggy Pop, the musically gifted characters who grace the pages of this book have all been captured at ther finest, or their most notorious, through vivid commentary and beautiful photographs, memorabilia and reminiscences from contemporaries and luminaries. The audience, too, play their part. Join the heaving masses at the Trips Festival, California and journey to Woodstock and the Shea Stadium, New York to watch The Beatles. With extraordinary pictures from leading rock photographers and exclusive contributions from audience and band members, including Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, and Woody Woodmansey of Ziggy Stardust fame, I Was There truly captures the essence of each gig - immense or intimate, polished or impromptu.
