  • A review of Uncommon People by David Hepworth 5

    "A fascination with the lives of pop stars is hard to justify: only occasionally do they have much of interest to say, and only occasionally are they agreeable people. But three generations have grown up with pop music as the soundtrack to their youth, and the cheap but sharp high of listening to the music they loved became conflated with their attitudes to the makers of that music..."
