Condolences to the family and friends of ERIC "DR. ROCK" ISRALOW, one of the world's first "rock historians" and a longtime SAN FRANCISCO area radio vet. ISRALOW died JUNE 2nd. He was 67.
SFGATE.COM notes, "ISRALOW left the UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO in NEW YORK shortly before he completed his doctoral thesis titled "The Three R's: Rock, Roll and Revolution." It was at BUFFALO where a student first called him 'DR. ROCK' because of his encyclopedic knowledge of the topic."
