More About The Ship That Rocked the World by Tom Lodge; Steven Van Zandt
 
 
 
Overview
Did you ever wonder why so much fantastic music started coming out of Britain in the 60s? Pirates did it. That's right, Pirates. The story of how they did it seems unbelievable, but it really happened, and it completely altered the course of rock and roll. Talent alone was not enough to break through the rigid broadcasting system that filtered anything it deemed 'unsafe'. Only bands approved by the BBC, which controlled radio across Britain, could get air time. That is, until 'pirate radio' was born. This book tells of Radio Caroline, and how a band of pirates changed the world of music forever. Written by Tom Lodge, main DJ of Radio Caroline, with Foreword by Steven Van Zandt, this is the true inside story of the British Invasion.
