Night Beat: an excerpt

  Mikal Gilmore, award-winning author of Shot in the Heart and renowned music critic, came of age alongside rock & roll. His brilliant reflections on music and its impact on popular culture have finally been collected in Night Beat, a thoughtful and entertaining compilation that spans his twenty year career.

In this issue of Bold Type, an essay on Marvin Gaye taken from Night Beat, demonstrates Gilmore's thoughtful reflections on one of music's most soulful and tragic figures. Plus, an added treat: an exclusive essay on the untimely death of guitar hero Stevie Ray Vaughan.
