The acclaimed journalist takes us from his Midlands upbringing to the forefront of music comment via the Melody Maker, Time Out, the Guardian and The Times, where he spent five years as their Chief Rock Critic. Since 2015, he has hosted a weekly music show for Soho Radio and has made several music documentaries for BBC Radio 4, including Lost Albums, and the New York Festival Gold Radio Award-winning The Songs of Molly Drake. Married to the writer and journalist Caitlin Moran, he will take the long view over more than 50 years of a life dominated by a love of music.
