Richard Williams is Chief Sports Writer for the Guardian but he made his name as the best popular music journalist in Britain. He was then for a time Head of A&R at Island Records. He writes books on music now, not articles, but he does blog on music in The Blue Moment. Williams is unusual amongst music writers. As he says, he’s interest in the mechanics of music: “The way that the backbeat and bass line works, rather than something else. That's how I listen to music. I listen to the notes.” Highly recommended.
I'm a writer whose interests include the biological revolution happening now, the relationship between art and science, jazz, and the state of the planet
