Jonathan King, there

Disc and Music Echo / 23 November 1968

Jonathan King is a controversial figure these days, but I’d be neglecting my duties if I didn’t highlight how influential he was in the music and entertainment industries. Like many of my generation, I watched Jonathan’s TV work, but I have little experience of his music writing in the 1960s. I’m sure he was as outspoken then as he’s always been, but it’s genuinely refreshing to see the music scene in the late 1960s through Jonathan’s jaded contemporary eyes, rather than through the rose-tinted nostalgic spectacles usually offered.
