be the Day floats you back to 1950s Newcastle, to the Queen's Coronation visit, Bill Haley's groundbreaking gig at the Odeon, jiving, jazz clubs, flouncy petticoats, tin baths in the kitchen, teddy boys, tough times and good times.More than 60 people who lived, worked and studied in the city have contributed their memories to this nostalgic portrait of an exuberant decade. From stockings to skiffle and roller skates to rag week, the book paints a vivid picture of a time when everybody smoked and ladies never wore trousers to work.A lot has changed over the last fifty years and That'll be the Day contains a vast array of evocative photographs showing a city that is both familiar and very different from the way it is today.Contributors to That'll be the Day include Johnny Handle, who traces his musical roots and John Steel, who remembers the beginnings of a career that would lead to the formation of The Animals. “Eric [Burdon] couldn’t really play the trombone”, he recalls.That'll be the Day is a prequel to the bestselling books It’s My Life: 1960s Newcastle and All Right Now! 1970s Newcastle.
