Music journalist and author Paul Du Noyer is visiting Glossop to talk about his career, his latest book and choose some of his favourite records.

Over the past 30 years, the journalist has written for the NME, was editor of Q, founding editor of Mojo and associate editor of the greatly missed Word magazine. He’s interviewed the likes of David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Madonna, Pavarotti and nearly everyone with a strong connection to The Beatles, not least Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

He’s also written several books including definitive musical histories of Liverpool and London, plus tomes dedicated to John Lennon and seminal art-rock band Deaf School. His latest book, Conversations With McCartney, draws from the many interviews Du Noyer has conducted with Paul McCartney.

Paul Du Noyer will be talking at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday, May 12, at 8pm, as a special guest of Glossop Record Club.

Simon Galloway, club founder, said: “We’re very lucky to have Paul come and talk to us. He’s met and interviewed so many music legends that I’m sure we’ll be asking him questions all night.”

Admission is free.
