Sylvia Patterson in Conversation
Sun, May 28, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM BST
Music journalist Sylvia Patterson, author of I’m Not With The Band: A Writer's Life Lost in Music will share some of the stories that made up one of the best rock memoirs of 2016.
In 1986 Sylvia left Scotland for London to pursue a career in music journalism. What follows is a 30 year journey in search of happiness through music, magazines, silly jokes, stupid shoes, useless blokes, hopeless homes, booze, drugs, love, loss, A&E, death, disillusion and hope - while trying to make Prince laugh, startle Beyoncé, cheer Eminem up, annoy Madonna, drink with Shaun Ryder and finish off Westlife forever (with varying degrees of success).
