This volume is a collection of pieces by 15 to 20 writers on their passion when young for a particular pop/rock band or artist. The model is Nick Hornby's anthology "My Favourite Year", about football. Pieces include: Danny Kelly, who went to every date on the Clash's first tour in a battered car; Steve Lamacq who spent his summer holidays in a transit van being a roadie for Mega City 4; John Bauldie, who set up the internationally renowned "Bob Dylan Magazine". The themes are about youth, pop music and the nature of fandom.
