Ben Rayner

Ben Rayner was drafted as the Toronto Star’s music critic back in 1998 when he was still just a wee sprout. For some reason, Canada’s largest daily newspaper continues to employ him, and for that he is very grateful. Prior to that he did a little time at the Ottawa Sun, and along the way since he’s contributed to a hodgepodge of publications that includes XLR8R, Fashion and Spin.com. He enjoys Joy Division and Kylie Minogue equally.
