Reviews

  • Marvellous . . . The age of the rock star is over, and Hepworth’s never-less-than fascinating book is a more than fitting farewell

    Dylan Jones, GQ
  • David Hepworth is such a clever writer . . . Uncommon People is a gorgeous read, celebratory and bittersweet, both pep rally and memorial, throbbing with insight and incident

    Julie Burchill, Spectator
  • This book is a kind of elegy for a glorious but passing phase in entertainment history . . . brim[s] with insight, humour and a certain genial astringency

    Stuart Maconie, Mail on Sunday
  • [A] wonderful portrait of rock stardom . . . Hepworth’s writing is sublime

    Daily Mail
  • The effect is that of faded, evocative, partisan Polaroids scattered from the memory of one obsessive music fan . . . Uncommon People emerges as part of the drive to capture, analyse and archive key moments in musical history that might otherwise vanish from popular memory before we know it
