This Day In Music does exactly what it says on the tin. Five years after the first book was published, this updated and expanded edition (this time in Hardback) features a day-by-day account of all things music, covering over 100 years of births, and seven decades of every significant, good, bad, and ugly event that has happened in music worldwide since the 1940s. From the first comprehensive Billboard Chart in 1940 to the awarding of OBE's to Status Quo on New Year's Eve 2009, this book covers the lot including recent events like the death of Michael Jackson and Rage Against The Machines' Christmas No. 1 last December. Each of the 366 days is jam packed with trivia, from gig performances to deaths, to the sale of music memorabilia; it's all here, presented in chronological order that makes it so easy to reference. As well as each date covered, this edition goes a step further and has some interesting trivia at the back of the book in the Access All Areas' section. The Did You Know section will tell you how many Grammy nominations Quincy Jones received, how much Elton John spent on flowers in a 20-month period, or what no. 1 artist carried the Queen Mother's coffin.
