“An in-depth look at the event that redefined the last 50 years. There have been several books published to mark the 50th anniversary of the most famous music festival…. Aidan Prewett may well have written the most interesting of them.” NIGEL WILLIAMSON, Songlines Magazine UK, Issue 153
“Prewett has reinvented the rock biography through his immersive and entertaining
interviews with key players… this is a triumph.” – Plastic EP
Prewett’s various film projects often feature a strong music focus, from the historical Me and the Devil Blues, about the legendary Robert Johnson, to the ‘60’s rock/politics documentary A Venue for the End of the World and the aural addiction of Me, Myself & iPod. His non-music documentaries include Selected Works of Uncle Neill and most recently The Trump Antidote. Prewett’s films have been shot on location across the globe and feature a host of entertainment luminaries.
