  1. Nice to see the “Loveless” book coming out, but I am disappointed to see David Keenan isn’t doing it anymore – I always thought he was one of the better, more perceptive writers for The Wire. Never heard of this Mike McGonigal fellow, but I’ll hope for the best (and I’ll be buying it no matter what)…

  2. hello. i’m just came across this blog, so please excuse if this has been mentioned already: My 33 1/3 suggestion would be Skip Spence’s Oar. that’s a good/weird story.

  3. It’s definitely not for “celebrity music journalists” only – I hope it doesn’t come across like that. The only way to get involved is to send in a proposal at the time when we’re looking for proposals. That could be some time in 2007, or it could be never again: we’ll have to see how the series chugs along, and how soon people tire of it.

  4. How can a music journalist like myself get involved in this work?Or is this strictly a gig for “celebrity music journalists” — i.e., music journalists that everybody knows and are part of the writing clique. (Not to sound like a “playa hata” or in this case, a “writer hater”).I like what you are doing here and I like the books, as well.Keep up the excellent work.– Trent

  5. No, we never signed up a Metallica book, although I do remember discussing the possibility with a couple of writers. As for Sonic Youth – my bad. I’ll get the date changed on Amazon. Manuscript isn’t quite finished yet, but would hope to publish this one in August…

  6. The De La Soul book was cancelled at the request of the author, who was banking on getting full access to the band – and that turned out to be impossible. A big shame.
