Chris Salewicz wrote for the NME in the 1970s and was one of the scribes that redefined music writing, moving it away from the fan club style of journalism prevalent in the 1960s. He was friends with and wrote fantastic biographies of Bob Marley and Joe Strummer, he recently published a biography of Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page as well. He tells some great stories about all of the above and shares his Flipside Five.

This is really great. I meet Chris a few times back in the 70's when I was with the Heavy Metal Kids. He's a great writer and I am finding this show really interesting.
