David Hepworth – 1971 – Rock’s Golden Year

18th Mar 2017  •  6:30PM – 7:30PM  •  Mitchell Library

1971 saw the release of more monumental albums than any year before – Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye and Carole King. Legendary rock journalist David Hepworth will be here to tell you why.

The Sixties ended a year late – on New Year’s Eve 1970, when Paul McCartney initiated proceedings to wind up The Beatles. Music would never be the same again. The next day would see the dawning of a new era. 1971 saw the release of more monumental albums than any year before or since and the establishment of a pantheon of stars to dominate the next forty years – Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Rod Stewart, the solo Beatles and more. January that year fired the gun on an unrepeatable surge of creativity, technological innovation, blissful ignorance, naked ambition and outrageous good fortune. How and why did it happen? Legendary rock journalist David Hepworth will be here to tell you!
