Reviewer's Bio

Paul Rigby

 

Paul Rigby  --  Enjoy the Music.com

 

  As a journalist and editor for over 30 years, I have penned scribbles to hundreds of national magazines and newspapers in the UK, Europe and the USA. 

I began my journalistic life as an aviation journalist writing for a range of historical-based and modern publications such as Airforces Monthly, Aviation News, Air Pictorial, Air Enthusiast and more.

From there I was drafted into plastic model-making and Aircraft Modelworld, Scale Models and the like. The amount of secret images I smuggled out of the Soviet Union tucked inside traded plastic model kits, all in the cause of rare details of Soviet helicopters was quite heroic, let me tell you. 

I then spent a number of years writing for all of the top computer gaming magazines in the world including the USA's own Computer Gaming World and then more serious fare including rather weighty business concerns for serious PC magazines as well as industry newspapers. During this time I also edited Amiga Pro magazine, it's gaming equivalent 32, PC Mart magazine and Amiga Mart.

From there, I undertook stints in lady's lifestyle magazines asking nervous pop-stars about their love life (stand up Closer magazine) and then from the sublime to the Antiques industry. Interviewing experts at Sotherby's about American Pop Art, Christie's about Italian glassware and Bonhams about model soldiers. It was an education. But that's life, eh?

Next was a time writing for broadsheet newspapers including the Independent, mostly about mobile technology. Which is why I became the News Editor
for a mobile phone magazine or two, then a handset reviewer and then, after that? Home automation magazines. You know the sort of thing: press a button and your curtains open and close. Although my hardware columns were a little more complex in terms of content.

I then became the editor for Record Mart & Buyer magazine in the UK, then Record Buyer and proceeded to become a music journalist, interviewing the rich and the famous including some very naughty individuals indeed (it was tough to understand the late and very lovely Robert Palmer's interview because he undertook it while being dead drunk, for example, while Mike Oldfield was plain deaf…still is). 

Other moments included writing for TV and movie magazines and even a fitness magazine in which the late, lamented Gene Pitney told me about his fitness regime whilst on tour. There may have been other career avenues and industries (including a book plus computer game manuals) but I'm forgotten them in the blur.

Currently, I write for a business magazine in the UK, a couple of hi-fi websites plus Hi-Fi World and  Record Collector magazines. As The Audiophile Man, I'm also resident in the shady confines of my own music and hi-fi website at www.TheAudiophileMan.com.
