Jump on the tour bus with the music idols you love.

Music creates the soundtracks to our private lives. Even if we never meet our favourite musicians, through our relationships with their music we can feel connected. Yet, so often, the lives of our idols unfold in the public eye. From a safe distance we can track their artistic and personal triumphs and blunders – their best and worst exposed for all to see. Dig beyond the media reports and you'll discover the bigger picture behind the lives and inspirations of the musicians you love and the moguls who drive the music industry. Here are just some of their stories.
