Last updated 29th July 2018
Thanks for visiting, and to all of you who have mailed me with questions, comments, information and your own personal memories. I've now been doing this for over twenty years and, although I'm finding less time to create major new items, they will still rock up now and then as there are still a few things I'm working on. Of course, I'll keep adding and changing bits here and there on a regular basis and there will occasionally be new articles from Bill Harry and contributions from other generous people such as Danny, Paul and Glenn. So, if you have any interesting or unique memories, pictures or anecdotes from the Sixties, please get in touch and maybe we can share and re-live them here at Sixties City! There are now well over 500 pages of great 60s-related information, sounds and images, including many unique articles and graphics, and you won't find it filled with adverts as it is a non-profit interest, not a business, although there may be the odd one or two to help cover maintenance costs (feel free to enquire). Do please note that the pages now appearing at the old '.com' location are completely unrelated to this site and I cannot hold any responsibility for any content or links used there. Best wishes always,
  



Presented here, in his own words, is the definitive story of one of the Sixties' seminal music papers - a fascinating and unique personal insight into the early days of the 'British Beat Boom'. Bill Harry was the original founder of the Liverpool music paper that chronicled the groups and venues responsible for the 'Mersey Sound', the publication that was to give its name to the Sixties phenomenon that has since become almost universally known as Merseybeat. These pages also feature over 210 articles from the pen of Bill Harry, providing his unique and informative view on many and varied aspects of Sixties events, personalities, music and culture, and personal interviews with the stars.

Paul Gabor's MONUMENT project Paul Gabor's 'Monument' project is rock music, evoking the moods and sounds of the sixties, enhanced by the use of symphonic orchestration and several unique forms of expression. It has a vision; an overall concept, a message, a theme: the passing of a generation and era that has had a profound impact on the whole world, The Sixties. The music is visual by nature; ready for a following video-version, and has a well-planned continuation: full album; following albums; full catalog. The EP is essentially ready as a "glorified demo" as it was designed to be. The project's goal is to elevate an already great music product to fully professional levels and make it available for large audiences using the best talent, production techniques and technology, combined with lots of work and financial support.
