1 I watch MTV™ all the time and I've never heard of Mersey Beat?
Believe it or not, the music business didn't begin on video and the Golden Age of popular music preceded MTV by more than a decade! Incidentally, MTV's sister channel, VH1™, has featured the documentary The Story Of Mersey Beat several times and Bill Harry has been the subject of a number of VH1 interviews. The Guinness Book Of Records has also officially recognized Liverpool as the 'Capitol City Of Music', with more No. 1 records than any other city in the world.
2 Who is Bill Harry and what is his relationship to Liverpool, the Beatles and the music scene?
Bill Harry attended the Liverpool College of Art with John Lennon, and founded Mersey Beat, the seminal music paper that helped launch the Beatles in the early sixties. He has been the publicist for a host of groups and artists, including Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys, Led Zepplin, Jethro Tull, and David Bowie. He is the author of thirteen books on the Beatles, and has compiled an archive on the Beatles that spans more than thirty years.
3 Don't you have to be a senior citizen to appreciate Mersey Beat?
No.

10 Where can I find out more about the Beatles and other Liverpool artists?
