30 Jim DeRogatis Pop music critic, Chicago Sun-Times The Sun-Times columnist, co-host of syndicated radio talk show Sound Opinions and author of several books, including Milk It: Collected Musings on the Alternative Music Explosion of the ’90s and Staring at Sound: The True Story of Oklahoma’s Fabulous Flaming Lips, continues to be the recognizable face of Chicago’s music criticism, and his consistent newspaper pieces that question the motives of major corporations like Live Nation and Ticketmaster reinforce his dedication to music fans more than anyone else.
