BEST CLASSIC BANDS (www.bestclassicbands.com), a website that offers rock music journalism, news, reviews and more, has named music journalist, editor and author JEFF TAMARKIN as its Editor, effectively immediately. The announcement was made by the site’s founder GREG BRODSKY, to whom he reports.
“JEFF is a great storyteller who brings an encyclopedic knowledge of music to the site,” said BRODSKY. “Our readers will feel his passion in our coverage of this great, timeless music. BEST CLASSIC BANDS focuses on an underserved, specific yet significant category: rock fans, who enjoy a lifelong relationship with the artists and their music. It’s great to have so many of these acts still recording and performing, whether they’re headlining stadiums or clubs.”
“I’m excited to be working with BEST CLASSIC BANDS!” said TAMARKIN. “I started buying records by THE BEATLES, BEACH BOYS, STONES, HENDRIX and the rest in my childhood, and while I’ve never stopped seeking out new and different sounds, I always return to this music we now call classic rock. Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to this music that has defined my world. My enthusiasm has never dipped even a little, and I consider it a gift that I’ve ben able to spend my days giving something back to these amazing artists as an editor and writer. I’ve been impressed by BESTCLASSICBANDS.com since the day it launched and I look forward to editing the site’s content.”
