|"Follow King's Heath's lead in celebrating musical heritage" says Mail!|
"Let's do more to celebrate our musical heritage" urges an editorial in the Birmingham Mail on Saturday 16 September alongside a full page article on King's Heath's 50th Beatles Anniversary Celebration.
The full editorial reads, "As well as producing plenty of home-grown talent such as The Move, Black Sabbath, Duran Duran and UB40, Birmingham has staged gigs by countless up-and-coming bands from elsewhere.
But none come bigger than the Beatles and how fitting we should remember how a modest venue in King's Heath once hosted the Fab Four.
Let's do more to celebrate our musical heritage".
The editorial could also have added that both Duran Duran and UB40 made some of their earliest recordings at Bob Lamb's Cambridge Road and then Highbury Studio in King's Heath, UB40 played their first ever gig in King's Heath and The Move's Trevor Burton has lived in King's Heath for over 20 years. So King's Heath has played a really pivotal role in the whole city's musical heritage and is now helping to lead the way in promoting that heritage!
