How to Be a Rock Critic

Lester Bangs was more complicated than he gets credit for, but then aren’t we all? As Robert Quine explained his longtime friend: “He was really bright, really smart, a really great soul, and he happened to be totally obsessed with music.” And from that came both the idea of the “world’s greatest rock critic” and this play by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, named after a 1974 essay by Bangs on negotiating the basics and the bullshit in this sub-basement of show biz. Drawn from as much as his work as possible, up to and including unpublished papers at the Bangs estate, How To Be A Rock Critic works to mix myth and music in a way that hopefully resolves to a recognizable moment of humanity—which is what happened when Bangs himself was at his best.
