SF Fandom Birthed Rock Journalism (Remembering Paul Williams)

I just learned that rock critic and science-fiction researcher Paul Williams passed away Wednesday.  Anyone looking for an example of how science fiction fandom helped create rock n’ roll journalism, look no further than the first half of this interview with Williams.

This guy gave us Crawdaddy magazine and the Theodore Sturgeon collection, plus much more. Talk about someone who could do two things well in pioneering ways!
