Annie Zaleski has been writing about music for 13+ years. (Perhaps that’s why she’s always sleep-deprived.) Her work has appeared in various newspapers, magazines and online publications; some of these publications include Rolling Stone, Billboard, Spin, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Phoenix and Salon.com. Her favorite interviewees of all time were the Cure’s Robert Smith, the Churchâ€™s Marty Willson-Piper and XTC’s Andy Partridge. However, her favorite band of all time is R.E.M., as evidenced by her DRVER8 license plate.
