Episode 54: “Loud Mouth” with Robert Duncan

May 25, 2021

Author Robert Duncan was barely out of his teens when he started writing for the influential music magazine Creem, becoming its managing editor at 22. He worked alongside legendary rock critic Lester Bangs, witnessed his tragic spiral, and finally discovered him dead of an OD in the apartment next door. He went on to write for Rolling Stone, Circus, Life, and dozens of other publications, interviewing hundreds of rock stars at the top of their game.

These experiences, and many others, provide the fuel for his debut novel, Loud Mouth, a rock ‘n’ roll coming-of-age novel about sex, drugs, attempted murder, successful arson, love, hate, faith, fraud, family, Springsteen, Clash, Stones, Creem magazine, Lester Bangs, the Seventies, New York, Detroit, Memphis & buck teeth. Duncan promises that “Some of it is factual. All of it is true.”
