British author, editor, writer and publishing consultant. Roberts worked for Guinness World Records (1975-2006) where he became associate director. His work there included editor on music, sport, natural history and leisure titles and design work.
In the mid-1990s, he was a content consultant to the National Centre for Popular Music. He was author of the Rock Atlas (Ovolo) in 2011 and managing editor in 2011-12 of the Rock Chronicles (Quarto Communications). He currently contributes a column to Prog magazine, authored Rock Stars Cars in 2016 and is now Editorial Director at Hornet Books. He also runs poppublishing.
