Who can earnestly accept responsibility for the breaking of a band? Is it the A&R that signed them? The producer that brought their music to life in the studio? The publicist who took it into radio or the manager who was the glue that held it all together? What about the unsung heroes of the day? Those fans who commented, shared, tweeted, tumbled, hash-tagged and up-voted? Who donned, nay made t-shirts and transformed themselves into walking adverts for their musical paramours? We explore and finally celebrate the influence of the “super fan”.
