Pressetext:

Pop music’s a simple pleasure. Is it catchy? Can you dance to it? Do you fancy the singer?

What’s fascinating about pop is our relationship with it. This relationship gets more complicated the longer it goes on. It’s been going on now for fifty years.

David Hepworth is interested in the human side of pop. He’s interested in how people make the stuff and, more importantly, what it means to us.

In this wide-ranging collection of essays, he shows how it is possible to take music seriously and, at the same time, not drain the life out of it. From the legacy of the Beatles to the dramatic decline of the record shop, from top tips for bands starting out to the bewildering nomenclature of musical genres – with characteristic insight and humour, he explores the highways and byways of this vast multiverse where Nothing Is Real and yet it is, emphatically and intrinsically so. Along the way, he asks some essential questions about music and about life: is it all about the drummer; are band managers misunderstood; and is it appropriate to play ‘Angels’ at funerals?
As Pope John Paul II said, ‘Of all the unimportant things, football is the most important.’ David Hepworth believes the same to be true of music, and this selection of his best writing, covering the music of the last fifty years, shows you precisely why.

About the author:

David Hepworth has been writing, broadcasting and speaking about music and media since the seventies. He was involved in the launch and editing of magazines such as „Smash Hits“, „Q“, „Mojo“ and „The Word“, among many others.

He was one of the presenters of the BBC rock music programme „The Old Grey Whistle Test“ and one of the anchors of the corporation’s coverage of „Live Aid“ in 1985. He has won the Editor of „The Year“ and writer of „The Year“ awards from the Professional Publishers Association and the Mark Boxer award from the British Society of Magazine Editors.

He lives in London, dividing his time between writing for a variety of newspaper and magazines, speaking at events, broadcasting work, podcasting at www.wordpodcast.co.uk and blogging at.

He says Chuck Berry’s „You Never Can Tell“ is the best record ever made. „This is not an opinion“, he says „It’s a matter of fact“.
