Tim Chester Writer and web editor

Six years on the music journalism front line at NME – interviewing everyone from Kanye West (‘a legend”) to Dizzee Rascal (‘a nightmare’) – has taken Tim across the globe and taught him a few tricks of the criticism trade, if stealing innumerable brain cells in return. He’s since swapped the Glastonbury Podpads for more comfortable options and now looks after Rough Guides’ online operations while writing for GQ, The Sunday Times, The Guardian and others on all things food, culture and travel.
