Apollo Memories

ByMartin Kielty

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Apollo legend retold… When the rock’n’roll revolution came, Scotland was in the thick of the action. Every big name in the business wanted to be there for one reason: the Glasgow Apollo. Between 1973 and 1985 the ‘Purple Palace’ played host to everyone who ever mattered. From ABBA to Zappa, Johnny Cash to the Style Council, they all played and they all came back. The former cinema was a one-off, with its high stage, infamous bouncers – and the terrifying bouncing balcony. This book, first published in 2005, explains what made the venue so special, with the addition of new interviews, unseen photos and commentary. It ties in with the GlasgowApollo.com website to bring you the story of a rock’n’roll legend, told by the people who made it: those who played there, those who worked there and the unforgettable Glasgow choir, who inspired dozens of acts to record their Apollo shows for live release. Martin Kielty is a Glaswegian music journalist, band manager and drummer.
