Alex MacKenzie Signs his Book The Life & Times of the Motown Stars

Tuesday 01 February 2011
7:30 pm

The Life and Times Of The Motown Stars by Alex MacKenzie is a book marking the 50th anniversary of Motown Records.
Motown was originally incorporated on 12th January 1959 in Detroit by Berry Gordy and became the most successful independent record label of all time. With nearly 200 number 1 songs worldwide, Motown’s hits continue to appear globally in commercials, TV shows and movies, and remain an influence on today’s soul, pop a...nd R&B music and artists.

This extraordinary new book gives a fascinating insight into the lives and careers of all the key figures in the history of Motown, and chronicles the meteoric rise of the label.

The author, Alex MacKenzie, has researched and compiled over many years to present the most comprehensive book to date on Motown’s artists, backroom staff, locations and executives. With over 150 life studies, this book is a ‘must read’ for any fan of the music.

From Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and The Four Tops, to Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and the The Jackson 5 – discover what life was really like for these musical legends. This book not only charts their careers, and subsequent lives and whereabouts after leaving Motown, but also chronicles the historic dates and timeline of one of the most influential record labels of all time.
