Get ready for a Rock ‘n’ Roll book sign­ing

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

ABOOK sign­ing for Rock ’n’Roll Un­rav­elled will be tak­ing place at Write Blend in Water­loo to­mor­row (Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 17) at 7.30pm.

Au­thor Derek Shelmer­dine will start the evening with the story of rock’n’ roll, from its blues roots to mid-1970s punk as this is the pe­riod cov­ered by his book.

This will be punc­tu­ated with the clas­sic songs from the era.

There will be plenty of op­por­tu­nity for ques­tions and dis­cus­sion, and the evening will con­clude with the chance to se­cure a signed copy of his book.

Rock’n’Roll Un­rav­elled tells the story of rock’n’roll, not just the his­tory of the mu­sic but also the ex­ter­nal events which helped to shape it, such as the Viet­nam War and the Civil Rights strug­gle.

Mu­sic and world events; births and deaths; cov­ers and originals; record­ing ses­sions and record re­leases; failed au­di­tions; land­mark con­certs and fes­ti­vals; how ma­jor bands came to­gether - can all be found in Rock’n’Roll Un­rav­elled.

Write Blend, in South Road, Water­loo, is a per­fect com­bi­na­tion of book shop and cof­fee shop, who reg­u­larly have au­thors, poets, sto­ry­tellers and even live per­for­mances from some fa­mous faces.
