Music Criticism:

Before I started writing about baseball, I was a freelance music critic for magazines such as Alternative Press and Ray Gun. I also had the privilege of helping Ira Robbins update and expand the Trouser Press archives on TrouserPress.com. Here are links to my contributions there (all from 2004).

I briefly attempted to get back into writing about music at a blog called Tin Ear at the late, lamented Baseball Toaster. I continue to hope/pretend that I will re-start that blog, but in the meantime, that link will take you to the only two posts . . . from 2008.

 

One response to “About Me

    I wanted to thank you for your recent SI article criticizing the response of MLB and the Angels to Josh Hamilton being found NOT in violation of MLB’s drug policies. I was shocked and disappointed, too, at the hurtful tone they took toward a fellow human being with two difficult addictions to battle. I can’t begin to imagine the stress Mr. Hamilton is under each and every day, even without MLB and the Angels piling on. If MLB and the Angels are in any way guilty of violating Mr. Hamilton’s confidentiality in this matter, I hope they are held accountable. Take care, Mr. Corcoran, and keep up the good work.
