Chapter Summary

Utilising the concept of lifestyle, this chapter examines the interplay between popular music, cultural memory and everyday aesthetics as these inform the collective cultural practices of ageing popular music fans. Cultural memory has been theorised as an inherently rich and plural interplay between the contemporary mediascape and more locally derived cultural sensibilities of individuals. It has subsequently been argued that cultural memory, rather than presenting as a fixed, intangible point in a collectively articulated past, is continually re-presented through its embeddedness in those everyday artefacts through which individuals re-produce their collective cultural selves in the present.
