EVERYMAN MUST HAVE A DREAM – LIVERPOOL

# 17 DEC 1976

LIVERPOOL EXPRESS ARE A BRITISH POP ROCK BAND FORMED IN 1975. THEY ARE BEST KNOWN FOR SONGS SUCH AS “YOU ARE MY LOVE” (WHICH PAUL MCCARTNEY ONCE DECLARED ONE OF HIS FAVOURITE SONGS), “EVERY MAN MUST HAVE A DREAM”, AND FOR CHARTING SEVERAL HITS.

LIVERPOOL EXPRESS TOURED THE UK AND PARTS OF EUROPE WITH ROD STEWART AND BY PERSONAL REQUEST, PLAYED FOR PRINCE CHARLES AT A ROYAL GALA SHOW HELD IN LIVERPOOL.

ALL FOUR BAND MEMBERS HAD PREVIOUSLY PLAYED WITH THE BAND THE MERSEYBEATS, WITH BILLY KINSLEY BEING A CO-FOUNDING MEMBER IN THE 1960S.

 

1975, AMERICAN SINGER SONGWRITER TIM BUCKLEY COMPLETED THE LAST SHOW OF A TOUR IN DALLAS, TEXAS, PLAYING TO A SOLD-OUT CROWD OF 1,800 PEOPLE. THIS WAS BUCKLEY’S LAST EVER SHOW, HE DIED THE FOLLOWING DAY OF A HEROIN AND MORPHINE OVERDOSE AGED 28.

1980, PAUL MCCARTNEY’S ‘COMING UP’ BECAME ONE OF THE FEW ‘LIVE’ RECORDINGS TO REACH THE TOP OF BILLBOARD’S HOT 100. AMERICAN DISC JOCKEYS PREFERRED IT TO THE STUDIO VERSION ON THE FLIP SIDE OF THE RECORD.

1997, PUFF DADDY AND FAITH EVANS STARTED A THREE-WEEK RUN AT NO.1 ON THE UK SINGLES CHART WITH ‘I’LL BE MISSING YOU’. RELEASED IN MEMORY OF FELLOW BAD BOY RECORDS ARTIST NOTORIOUS B.I.G. WHO WAS MURDERED ON MARCH 9, 1997. THE SONG SAMPLED THE MELODY OF THE POLICE’S ‘EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE’ 1983 HIT.

1997, THE CLASSIC PINK FLOYD ALBUM ‘DARK SIDE OF THE MOON’ SPENT ITS 1056TH WEEK ON THE US ALBUM CHART. IT WAS RUMOURED AT THE TIME THAT IF THE ALBUM WAS PLAYED WHILE WATCHING THE WIZARD OF OZ MOVIE, AND STARTED EXACTLY WHEN THE MGM LION ROARED THE THIRD TIME DURING THE MOVIE’S INTRO, VERY INTERESTING CONNECTIONS COULD BE MADE BETWEEN THE TWO.

2007, THE SPICE GIRLS CONFIRMED THEY WOULD REFORM FOR A WORLD TOUR TO TAKE PLACE IN DECEMBER 2007 AND JANUARY 2008 WITH THE ORIGINAL LINE-UP WHO HAD NOT PERFORMED ON STAGE SINCE GINGER SPICE GERI HALLIWELL QUIT IN MAY 1998.
