Description - Pop Music And The Press by Steve Jones
Since the 1950s, writing about popular music has become a staple of popular culture. "Rolling Stone", "Vibe", and "The Source" as well as music columns in major newspapers target consumers who take their music seriously. Until recently, no one has tackled popular music criticism as a genre of journalism with a particular history and evolution. This work looks at the major publications and journalists who have shaped this criticism, influencing the public's ideas about the music's significance and quality. It illuminates the complex relationships of the music industry, print media, critical practice, and rock culture.
