The rock stars’ rise and fall, Radiohead’s mentor, the greatest five seconds in pop
BE THERE WITH DALI celebrates the minds behind the music with top journalists who know the stories behind the great recordings. It’s an audio companion to DALI’s print magazine, also called BE THERE – get the new issue free via the DALI Facebook page.
This time we’re joined by special guests DAVID HEPWORTH – co-presenter of Live Aid and the BBC’s Whistle Test, co-founder of Q and Mojo magazines – and best-selling rock biographer JOEL McIVER whose books include ‘Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica’ and ‘Spider From Mars: My Life With David Bowie’ with Woody Woodmansey.
David asks the question “Is the age of the rock star over?” And if it is, what brought this extraordinary species to its end? Joel tells us about his BE THERE magazine interview with the extraordinary John Leckie, the go-to producer for generations of alternative rock bands from The Stone Roses to Radiohead. And our guests make their personal choices of THE greatest five seconds in all pop. You can hear all the songs we talk about on our Tidal playlist.
BE THERE WITH DALI is presented by Andrew Harrison with audio production by Jack Claramunt. It’s a Podmasters Production.
