"With weekly sales down from a high of 250,000 to less than 10,000, the end of the UK music press is nigh. But music journalist and former magazine editor turned successful blogger David Hepworth isn't mourning its loss. Recalling the golden ages of Melody Maker, NME, Smash Hits and other ground-breaking and agenda-setting publications with writers including Richard Williams, Danny Baker, Mark Ellen, Jude Rogers and Danny Kelly, David explores the long decline of pop in print and asks - in the words of the Rolling Stones - who needs yesterday's papers?"
