Paolo Hewitt has been for over thirty years one of the U.K.’s foremost writers on popular music. Cutting his teeth at the NME for seven years in the eighties, he also moonlighted as the ‘Cappuccino Kid’, whose musings and manifesti adorned the covers of Style Council albums.

Paolo has written over twenty books, including Getting High: The Adventures of Oasis, Steve Marriott: All Too Beautiful and the novel Heaven’s Promise (all to be made available as ebooks from Dean Street Press). Other than music, recurrent themes in his writing include mod culture, football and fashion.
