Hugh Fielder (author) can remember the 1960s even though he was
there. He can remember the 1970s and 1980s because he was at Sounds
magazine (RIP) and the 1990s because he was editor of Tower
Records' TOP magazine. He has shared a spliff with Bob Marley, a
glass of wine with David Gilmour, a pint with Robert Plant, a cup
of tea with Keith Richards and a frosty stare with Axl Rose. He has
watched Mike Oldfield strip naked in front of him and Bobby Womack
fall asleep while he was interviewing him.
Mark Beaumont (foreword) is an author, broadcaster and award-winning music writer for publications including NME, The Guardian, The Times, Shortlist and Classic Rock. He has spent almost twenty years documenting the highs and lows of rock'n'roll's greatest names, interviewing everyone from Keith Richards and Paul McCartney to the biggest bands of today. He is the author of several books.
