Bob Stanley

Sat 1 Feb 2014

Due to unforeseen personal circumstances, this event has been cancelled.

As the founder of the influential band Saint Etienne, whose brand of collage pop draws on numerous musical styles, Bob Stanley has an insider's view of the music industry - a view that makes his latest book, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah: A History of Modern Pop, such an authoritative and passionate account. 

In conversation with The Guardian music critic Alexis Petridis, he talks about the development, the genres and the artists that made pop between 1950 and 2000.
