9780634066931: On This Day in Music History: Over 2,000 Popular Music Facts Covering Every Day of the Year

(Book). The dictionary defines trivia as: "matter or things of very slight importance, commonplace, or ordinary." Yet anyone who has ever read anything about a favorite sports star, singer, historic figure or celebrity will find that it is often the so-called trivia that makes things memorable about that person or event. Nowhere is this more apparent than in this book. Add the context of the progression of hundreds of parallel lives through the timeline of a pseudo calendar format and it becomes anything but commonplace. This is especially intriguing when coupled with music history. Over 2,000 entries are listed in chronological order, covering every day of the year. By combining a calendar format with wonderful photos and illustrations, and an elevated element of trivia, this new kind of to-the-point history in "on-this-day" format sets a new trend in books for the instant gratification of 21st-century culture.

From the Publisher:

Foreword by Beatles producer Sir George Martin. Other testimonials include: Neil Diamond - "What fun ! I dare you to put it down" also John Kay from Steppenwolf, D.A. Sonneborn from the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings , Mary Wilson from the The Supremes and the late Rick James who wrote "I may be the king of funk 'n' roll, but Jay is the king of facts"

From the Inside Flap:

Brimming with fascinating trivia about popular music from rock to R&B to country, On This Day in Music History seems like a straightforward reference book, but connecting the stories and facts over the days and months, it reveals the rich and relevant mosaic that is modern music.
