Andy Perry (journalist, Q, Mojo)

Andrew Perry has been writing about popular music professionally for 25 years, but you could add another ten to include his early years on fanzines and student magazines. In the ’90s, he worked on indie magazine Select, rising to Deputy Editor. Since going freelance in 2000, he has written mostly for The Daily Telegraph, Q, Mojo and Numéro. His work has also appeared in titles in America, China, Japan and Australia. He’s now really living the dream, ghost-writing the autobiography of his teenage hero, John Lydon.
