Cider With Roadies,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cider With Roadies (Paperback)
This is a delightful memoir – the story of Stuart Maconie’s love affair with music. It takes us from his first concert at the age of three (The Beatles, which is unbeatable by any standards), through Northern Soul, progressive Rock, the arrival of Punk Rock, a short lived attempt at playing in a band and his later career as a rock journalist. Maconie is always humorous and slightly self mocking, but his enthusiasm is unfeigned and always honest. This will make you dig out obscure albums as well as listen to old favourites with fresh interest. All music lovers will enjoy this and, as an added bonus, Maconie is charming and excellent company, who will make you laugh out loud. A joy to read – but why it is not available on kindle I have no idea. It is surely deserving of re-release. However, for now, dig out a paperback copy and discover the highs and lows of fandom and working for the NME.

One to look out for, this end - I like Maconie's style, both in writing and in broadcasting - 'charming and excellent company who will make you laugh out loud' as you say, indeed!

Yes, he is very good. I was hoping this would appear on kindle after reading the kindle single which it was taken from, but that hasn't happened yet.
