BEST SELLING BOOK ‘Blame It On The Beatles ... And Bill Shankly’ Website <blameitonthebeatles.com>
In 1960 The Beatles are just one of over three hundred local bands. Then they head off to Germany to play at a small club in the red-light district of Hamburg. And return home to Liverpool a couple of months later transformed.
At around the same time a Scotsman called Bill Shankly is making big changes at Liverpool Football Club. The club has been struggling to keep up with Everton, but he promises the fans that in a new, all-red strip their beloved team will be champions.
On Merseyside a group of teenagers are living what they think of as unremarkable and ordinary lives. Then they start to realise that everything is changing. Their home city is becoming somewhere quite extraordinary. Liverpool is the centre of the teenage universe as four local lads, John, Paul, George and Ringo, achieve fame across the world.
And the joyous sound of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ fills Anfield as Bill Shankly keeps his promise.
