Summary "From a Cliff Richard gospel concert at the age of 10, to his first rock show aged 14, where The Jam play so loudly he blacks out, to a Joy Division gig which erupts into a full-scale riot, Foreground Music is the result of a lifetime's passion for gig-going.... Foreground Music captures the power of life-changing gigs, whilst tracing the evolution of 40 years of musical movements and subcultures. It's an honest, touching and witty story of friendship, love, creativity and mortality and, above all, a testament to music's ability to inspire and heal."--From inside cover flap.
