Music journalist Andrew Mueller

From Summer Nights, 10:30 pm on 2 January 2014

Andrew Mueller talks about what happened to rock after the last hurrah of the British music press. His new book, 'It's Too Late to Die Young Now', documents his own journey from writing for the Sydney music street press in his teens, to working among his heroes for the legendary UK music weekly Melody Maker by his early twenties. Along with meeting some of those who had made his favourite records, Andrew was also witnessing the end of the British music press' heyday - before the decline of live pub venues and record stores, when music writers' critique still held sway.
