Let’s get this straight right from the start – everything you know about popular music is wrong.
And the man who will put you right is embittered media studies lecturer Brian Appleton. After all, wasn’t he centre stage at most of the crucial landmarks in popular culture, even if the stars who hog the limelight never give him the credit, or the royalties, that he deserves?
He’ll be telling all in his deadpan Brummie accent next Tuesday, September 24, at Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town Hall.
And anyone who tries to tell you that Brian is another character creation of Graham Fellows – the man behind comedy legend John Shuttleworth and, in his time, a real-life chart-topper as novelty hit front man Jilted John is just indulging in sour grapes.
Tickets are £14, or £12 for concessions and Dacorum Card holders – visit www.oldtownhall.co.uk to book.
