Hi. I'm Mark Beech. I've written about arts and culture, especially rock music, for longer than Taylor Swift has been on earth. My book All You Need is Rock, published by Thistle in 2014, is a collection of a decade's worth of writing as the rock critic for Bloomberg News, where I helped run Muse, the art/ luxury/ lifestyle section. I'm now the editor of Dante magazine and write for other publications such as Art & Auction and ArtInfo. My other books include The Dictionary of Rock & Pop Names. I've been a journalist since graduating from Oxford University, working for ITN and many London newspapers. Now and again I remember to sleep. I have also written plays and poetry and I'm a Fellow of Britain's Royal Society of Arts. For more, follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
