Rock’s Backpages compiles a tribute to the late UK music critic.
Cook, as quoted by Barney Hoskyns: “Describing a piece of music in a way which isn’t either cliché-ridden or merely fanciful is desperately difficult. I suppose if I have any advice to offer, it’s the simple truth that you have to listen properly, and hard, and ask yourself what’s going on and why.”
