The Sex Pistols sang about it, Nick Hornby claims he regrets not working for it. The fights, the bands, the brawls, the haircuts, the egos, and much more the definitive book about the infamous music magazine.For 60 years, since it was founded in 1952, the New Musical Express has played a central part in the British love affair with pop music and has been essential for American connoisseurs to remain in-the-know as well. This authoritative history is an insider's account of the high times and low lives of one of the world's most influential music magazines. It explains the stories behind the stories that kept readers coming back week after week the office brawls, the former staffers who launched their careers there (Tony Parsons, Julie Burchill, Nick Kent, Mick Farren, Steve Lamacq, and Stuart Maconie), and the bands who owe their success to the magazine. Snotty, confrontational, enthusiastic, and sarcastic: the new issue of theNME was the high point of any music fan's week, whether they were listening to The Beatles, Bowie, or Blur.
