Beverley Glick, first started writing for Sounds in 1979 under the name of Betty Page, and went on to make her name as the music journalist who championed the New Romantic movement, doing the first major interviews with Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, Soft Cell and Depeche Mode in the early Eighties.
She left Sounds in 1982 to become features editor of short-lived pop/rock hybrid, Noise!, before becoming assistant editor of pop weekly Record Mirror in 1983, going on to become deputy editor, then editor in 1986. She quit to go freelance in 1989 and in the early Nineties wrote for the NME and Vox.
In 1993 she left music journalism behind to enter the grown-up world of national newspapers, working at The Observer, The Sunday Telegraph and then The Sunday Express, where she now works as a commissioning editor.
Beverley has written a book about her adventures in Eighties pop and is currently seeking a publisher.
