It has taken Liverpool almost half a century to come to terms with the musical, cultural and now economic legacy of the Beatles and popular music. At times the group was negatively associated with sex and drugs images surrounding rock music: deemed unacceptable by the city fathers, and unworthy of their support. Liverpudlian musicians believe that the musical legacy of the Beatles can be a burden, especially when the British music industry continues to brand the latest (white) male group to emerge from Liverpool as ’the next Beatles’. Furthermore, Liverpudlians of perhaps differing ethnicities find images of ’four white boys with guitars and drums’ not only problematic in a ’musical roots’ sense, but for them culturally devoid of meaning and musically generic. The musical and cultural legacy of the Beatles remains complex. In a post-industrial setting in which both popular and traditional heritage tourism have emerged as providers of regular employment on Merseyside, major players in what might be described as a Beatles music tourism industry have constructed new interpretations of the past and placed these in such an order as to re-confirm, re-create and re-work the city as a symbolic place that both authentically and contextually represents the Beatles.

This book on Liverpool offers the reader many things: a comprehensive social and cultural history; an insider travel guide; an analysis of the city s people and the places they inhabit; the gripping tale of the Beatles in their Liverpool home and an evaluation of the music that preceded their rise and followed their demise in 1970. An inside view of the Scouser s unbreakable bond with his football team and the pub completes the picture. Neil Deane weaves in his own story after joining the proceedings in 1957, relating his everyday experience of life in his home town until his departure in 1979, after which he continues his autobiographical narrative as a self-exiled, committed observer and frequent visitor. He attempts to explain how and why Liverpool is a city on the edge , different from its northern neighbours, misunderstood and even reviled by sections of the southern establishment, and too often making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Sweeping away lazy clichés, he aims to get the reader that bit closer to the truth. The book is not a typical tourist guide, more an authentic tale told with love and passion, a personal odyssey with heaven and hell present in equal proportions; however, his final message of optimism is that any stranger visiting Liverpool will be uplifted most of all by its people, ever determined to make sure that heaven wins the penalty shoot-out.

Even before it gave us the Beatles, Liverpool produced the first true rock'n'roll star to be born outside America, Billy Fury. There has been a stream of star names ever since - from the Merseybeat time of the Beatles, Cilla Black and the Searchers to Echo and the Bunnymen, Elvis Costello, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, The La's, The Lightning Seeds and Atomic Kitten. Liverpool even rules the dance floor through its very own super-club, Cream.
