“The only thing wrong with music is that you can’t eat it”. So writes journalist and author STEVE ALMOND in his hilarious new book ROCK AND ROLL WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE. In this new book, Steve looks at the life of what he labels the “Drooling Fan”. This is the kind of rock fanatic who owns far too many CDs than is healthy; the kind of person who shouts out the names of band members at a concert; the type of person who makes mixed music CDs as a form of foreplay. Tune in tonight for a funny yet revealing discussion of whether there is life after being a rock critic and whether it’s “ok” to admit to STILL loving Brain Salad Surgery by Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
