The Kent State Massacre Freedom, the Anarchist Weekly May 16, 1970 +1

Here's the cover for the issue about the Kent State Massacre in 1970. I wrote the headline article.





Here's another paper from August of that year, at the end of my stay in London:

Check here for one listing, or go to the Biblio site and search for Kent State.

Nixon as Anarchist Freedom Anarchist Weekly 5/9/70

This is the first headline story I had in Freedom, the Anarchist magazine. I think it generated a lot of complaints among the readership. Who me?

Ripper 1981... the letter to the editor that started it all

I had seen an interview in Ripper fanzine. It was with a guy named TIM YOHANNON who had a radio show called MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL. I thought Tim came off as an asshole, and I wrote a letter saying so. It was printed in this issue:

Tim Yohannon contacted me after reading the letter, inviting me to write for MRR. I agreed, "as long as you print whatever I write."

"It's a deal," said Tim. We were friends from then on. I saw him whenever I visited San Fransisco.

Here's the Ripper letter. Click on it if you can't see the whole thing.



Tim's wishes were respected by editors after his death, until Mariam Bastani took over. At that time I was fired for a column, after being promised "we'll tell you if there's anything we object to."

This was two years ago. The editors have changed, but Tim's wishes go unrespected.




AND I'M STILL PISSED ABOUT IT!


If you'd like, you can write to the current editorial cabal: mrr@maximumrocknroll.com And tell them what you think.
