Pippa Lang has been a rock music journalist for nearly 30 years, most notably as Reviews Editor of Metal Hammer from 1989-1995. She's also written for Melody Maker, Mojo, What Hi-Fi, Sounds and Record Mirror, to name but a few.
Her book on Queen, 'These Are The Days Of Our Lives' (written under the pseudonym 'Stephen Rider'), was published in 1992. Pippa is now studying for her Music Degree at Kingston Uni, as she's also a musician - bassist/songwriter for punk band, Disturbed UK, for ten years and now sings, writes and plays keyboards for melodic rock outfit, Red-Eyed Suburbanites.
Of her balancing act between journalism and music, she says wryly: "I understand the hell journalists put musicians through"
