WRITING AND MEDIA
David writes and talks extensively about his - and others - music. His writings have been published in 2 books by Paul Roland, Metal Guru: The Life and Music of Marc Bolan (’thoroughly readable and perceptively analytic study goes way beyond the parameters of the standard rock biog’), and The Devil's Jukebox: a Biography of Paul Roland (‘fascinating magical mystery tour’, Classic Rock Magazine).
He has blogged extensively for Wales Arts Review, Ty Cerdd, Britten Sinfonia, and Hijinx Odyssey. He has also undertaken poetry writing workshops with Keats-Shelley Prize winner Cahal Dallat.
