English journalist Julie Burchill once said to me that rock critics were frustrated rock stars with a lot of unused homosexual heroworship. My experience tells me that rock critics are frustrated writers. If you want a career in media rock criticism is the place to start -it is even more inclusive than UK Punk -almost…

Many years ago I interviewed the Pretenders, wrote the story and mailed it to Creem. Upon publication I was shocked to discover my story was simply terrible. It was very, very poorly written. I called my editor Dave DiMartino and apologized, “You write a lot for us,” he said, “You’re gonna miss it sometimes.” But…

A great young rock singer, a Patrick Stickles or a Gareth Campesino, is like a street car racer: they roar at a hundred miles per hour with little regard for the car or themselves, reckless, dangerous, veering into the crowds, as likely to crash and burn in a concert as to make it out alive.…
