Liverpool

In the 1960's to early 1970's Liverpool was famous for the Rock n' Roll music and the very much talked about music group named The Beatles.  The group took music a to an unprecedented height and until now the name The Beatles still lingers in the memories of fans who have lived in that era.

The years of 70's and 80's also marked the rise of the Liverpool Football Club into European  dominance. During those years the club won many English League Championships and four European Champion Cups. Their fifth European Champion League Final (new name) was won in 2005 in Istanbul.

One thing to note is that Liverpool is the home of  many Malay ex-seamen and their descendants. The ex-seamen chose to remain in Liverpool when Malaysia became independent in 1957.
