He has had a longstanding interest in India and its music. He first met Ravi Shankar in 1994, worked with him on his autobiography (Raga Mala, 1997) and was encouraged by him to write his full story after his death. As a publishing editor he has worked on subjects ranging from Einstein to art collecting, and a lot of music books, including The Beatles: Get Back, which accompanies the new Peter Jackson documentary, David Bowie’s Moonage Daydream, named by Rolling Stone as one of its greatest rock memoirs, and John Robb’s classic Punk Rock: An Oral History.
