Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell on his two loves

September 15, 2010

Here’s a fine little piece by my former colleague at the St. Petersburg Times, Sean Daly, on guitarist/producer extraordinaire Mike Campbell, of the Heartbreakers. Nice work, Sean. In my book Campbell is the all-time master of playing EXACTLY what the song needs — no more, no less.

Two Pulitzers for the St. Pete Times!

April 20, 2009

A hearty and well deserved congratulations to my former colleagues at the St. Petersburg Times/ who won two Pulitzer Prizes,  it was announced today. Great job guys!

One of the prizes was awarded to, the Times’ groundbreaking fact-checking website. I was privileged to write the site’s theme song, “Gimme The Truth (The Politifact Song)”

The other Pulitzer went to fabulous writer (and all around wonderful person) Lane DeGregory, whose “Girl in the Window” moved millions.
