Publisher's Summary

Huey Morgan - Fun Lovin' Criminals' frontman and award-winning BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6 Music broadcaster - celebrates the unpredictable personalities and talents of popular music's rebel heroes and explains why we need them more than ever before.

The defining sounds of popular music - blues, rock 'n' roll, punk, hip-hop - were shaped and driven by rebel voices: whether that was Robert Johnson and Billie Holiday in the 1920s-40s or the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Joe Strummer in the 1960s and 70s. Truly ground- and rule-breaking voices have been drowned out by pop-by-numbers acts in more recent years, and in Rebel Heroes, Huey Morgan investigates where music started to lose its soul and why the lessons of those renegade spirits of yesteryear are still so vital.

The book is steeped in Huey's love for and knowledge of music and is full of personal anecdotes and stories of some of the greatest musicians to have graced us with their talent.

Such passion

It was great to listen to Huey talk with such passion about the history of our true rock and rollers. It was a musical education that I couldn’t stop listening too. I’ll be listening to it again very soon. Brilliant
