Musicians and bands have been adored since the first notes were recorded, but it was Beatlemania in the ’60s that heralded the birth of the Super Fan – a breed of music obsessive that literally worshipped their idols. Super Fans looks at the crazed followers and fan groups that surround the old-school as well as more modern music scene in a witty, fun and tongue-in-cheek way. From Beyoncé’s Beyhive, the Britney Army, Gaga’s Little Monsters, Nicki Minaj’s Barbz to Justin Beiber’s Beliebers – author Tobias Anthony goes deep into these fan groups to see how they tick.
Author Tobias Anthony wanted us to stress that he is not a hipster. He lives in inner-city Melbourne, Australia, is completing his PhD in English literature and teaches creative writing at a university. Oh, and he rides a bike and wears a moustache. So…yeah.
