Deeper Digs in Rock: Martin Popoff - The World's Most Famous Heavy Metal Rock Journalist
The Rock N Roll Archaeologist discusses Heavy Metal and other things with Martin Popoff. Things go so well that we are pleased to introduce his new show to be called “History in Five Songs with Martin Popoff”!
Martin has been described as the world's most famous heavy-metal journalist, though he has covered plenty of Punk and New Wave albums in his career of 7,000-plus album reviews. He has penned many books on various bands, genres of rock, and record collecting, including Voyageur Press' Rush: The Illustrated History; Metallica: The Complete Illustrated History; The Art of Metal; and The Big Book of Hair Metal. He has also worked on film documentaries about Rush and ZZ Top. Popoff lives in Toronto.
At approximately 7,900 (with more than 7,000 appearing in his books), Martin Popoff has unofficially written more record reviews than anybody in the history of music, writing across all genres. Additionally, Martin has penned fifty-six books on hard rock, heavy metal, classic rock, and record collecting, including 2017’s Led Zeppelin: All the Albums, All the Songs. He was editor-in-chief of the now-retired Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles for fourteen years, and has also contributed to Revolver, Guitar World, Goldmine, and Record Collector. Martin has been a regular contractor to Banger Films, having worked on the award-wining documentaries about Rush and ZZ Top.
While he and Christian discuss many of his works, they do focus on his latest release, The Clash: All the Albums, All the Songs published by Voyaguer Press: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0760359342/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i4
