You know, I always thought of Chicago Tribune music critic Greg Kot as one of the best out there. Then I read his bio of Wilco and I thought he IS the best. That book was so well written I can't find a comparison that comes close.
So I started reading more articles Kot has written and it exploded from there. He has a knack for getting musicians to talk at length about INTERESTING topics.
It occurred to me that perhaps I should start featuring his articles on here - share the love, if you will.
Let's start off by linking to his blog, which I just now discovered and plan to read like the bible:
