Rock Critic Joel Selvin Announces Retirement, Gets Gibson SG

06.01.2009

Last week San Francisco's hipsters came out to pay tribute to Joel Selvin, famous Senior Pop Critic for the San Francisco Chronicle and a Rolling Stone contributing writer. Joel announced his retirement and the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco (a Gibson club) threw him a party. Joel has been an important part of the famous San Francisco scene for more than 30 years and wrote the forward to Jim Marshall: Proof, still one of the coolest rock photographer hard covers out there. The SG in the picture was presented to Joel and later signed by many of these legends.
