He began as a writer with the New Musical Express in 1976 where he stayed for the next three years covering music such as The Clash, Blondie and The Sex Pistols. He went on to write for the Daily Mirror for many years, having been poached from the Daily Telegraph when Piers Morgan took over as editor. These days he write a column for the Sun on Sunday.
