Amazon Editorial Review

Cider with Roadies is the true story of a boy's obsessive relationship with pop. A life lived through music from Stuart's audience with the Beatles (aged 3); his confessions as a pubescent prog rocker; a youthful gymnastic dalliance with northern soul; the radical effects of punk on his politics, homework and trouser dimensions; playing in crap bands and failing to impress girls; writing for the NME by accident; living the sex, drugs (chiefly lager in a plastic glass), and rock and roll lifestyle; discovering the tawdry truth behind the glamor and knowing when to ditch it all for what really matters. From Stuart's four minutes in a leisure center with MC Hammer to four days in a small van with Napalm Death, it's a life-affirming journey through the land where ordinary life and pop come together to make music.
