Item description for The Little Black Book of Setlists by Glen Matlock...
Overview A pocket reference guide that details 150 of rock and roll history's most famous setlists from a number of legendary music performances, from Billie Holiday's grand Flamingo Club gig in 1953, right through to the Rolling Stones biggest concert ever (and even Take That's reunion in 2006). It is suitable for every obsessive music fan.
From Billie Holiday's grand Flamingo Club gig in 1953 right through to the Rolling Stones biggest concert ever, The Little Black Book of Setlists is the perfect dip-in guide for every obsessive music fan. The setlist has become part of rock and roll legend—a snapshot in time for your favorite artist, the songs they played and the shows they rocked. Setlists can tell the story of a band breaking up—sometimes right on stage, a final tragic show, the first gig of a massive world tour, the biggest show ever, the strangest, and even the deepest underground! For most though, legendary gigs, and their setlists, are remembered simply for their blistering rock and roll performances. Legendary setlists in this pocket guide include the final Nirvana performance, the Last Waltz, the Rolling Stones at Altamont, Johnny Cash in San Quentin, the Beatles rooftop show, Spinal Tap at Carnegie Hall, Prince's Superbowl half-time show, and Joy Division's first ever gig. The collection includes a foreword by Sex Pistols songwriter and bassist, punk rock pioneer Glen Matlock.
