In the Shadow of The Beatles: Growing Up in Liverpool

BY JOHN GLENN
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 25, 2017

Growing up in Liverpool, England—which makes him a Liverpudlian—John E. Glenn lived his teenage years in the shadow of The Beatles. At a time and place of great musical significance, the Mersey Sound unfolded as a driving force behind the British Invasion of the United States music scene in the 1960s and beyond. John traces the geography and history of Liverpool as a globally leaning maritime city, noting that The Beatles were uniquely gifted, yet a logical outcome of the city’s diversity, passion, and location. He suggests that the Fab Four could not have conquered the world if not born in the perhaps-unlikely environs of the great world city known as Liverpool.
