"Mitt eget Sixties!" - an illustrated book about pop music of the 60ies, by Rolf Hammarlund - known from the Swedish tv show "Sixties".
More than 21 succesfull episodes of "Sixties" have been watched by more than 1 million viewers. Now, we follow up the show by publishing the book "Sixties!" written by show host Rolf Hammarlund, who talks about his meetings with the legendary music idols of the 60ies.
For the very first time we can hear all the stories that couldn't be broadcasted on the telly. Read what the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Supremes, Lovin’ Spoonful, Mamas & Papas, Simon & Garfunkel, Byrds, Shadows, The Who, Bee Gees, Hollies said about "their" decade - when they stood on top of their pop careers!
Read all about the memories of their numerous visits in the Swedish folkparks and other venues. After all, Sweden has been the country where many of the world stars have started touring, when they went abroad!
The book "Mitt eget Sixties!" is richly illustrated with hundreds of unique photos from the golden 60ies; many of them have never been published before! We have also spiced up the book by adding photos that had been taken when Rolf Hammarlund interviewed the stars.
Rolf Hammarlund, born 1950, is also talking about his very own 60ies, sharing memories from concert hall Nalen, Tio-i-Topp, Bildjournalen, concerts, Swinging London, fashion and all what made pop music so special to us Swedes.
