Noon Edition

Music Journalist Anthony DeCurtis

I didn't get into music so I could have cool opinions and condescend to people. I got into music because I thought it was just the greatest thing I'd ever encountered.

Anthony DeCurtis' books include In Other Words: Artists Talk about Life and Work and Rocking My Life Away: Writing about Music and Other Matters.

DeCurtis co-edited The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll and The Rolling Stone Album Guide. His essay accompanying the Eric Clapton box set Crossroads won a Grammy in the "Best Album Notes" category.

He has appeared as a commentator on MTV, VH1, Today, and many other news and entertainment outlets. DeCurtis holds a doctorate in American literature from Indiana University.
