Richard Meltzer (born May 11, 1945) was one of the earliest rock music critics. When the wiki says WAS, they are usually referencing someone who either died or had some kind of "Sea Change" in their lives, but neither is indicated here. Can we get some clarity? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:50, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
What's the first thing a person says (or should say) after reading something by Meltzer? "Boy, wasn't Lester Bangs a great writer?" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:45, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
