Mark Beech's publishers have tried to extract from him some biographical information.



  • They describe him as “journalist, writer, broadcaster and Oxford polymath”. Whatever that means.

  • He modestly describes himself as ''a man of many parts - some of which still work - the old jokes are always the best…''

  • Jack-of-all-trades and hopefully the master of some, Mark Beech is known for his wide-ranging commentary. 

  • As a journalist, he has covered the arts, celebrities and general/political/financial news both in the UK and elsewhere. 

  • Perhaps his greatest claim to fame - if fame there really is in this world - is as the author of the best-selling The A-Z of Names in Rock, a standard musical reference work.
