Early life and education

Fricke graduated from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, in 1972.[3][4][5]


The very first concert that Fricke attended was a Pink Floyd concert. It was his love for live music that set him on his career path of becoming a music journalist.[6]

Before joining Rolling Stone, where he is now senior editor, he wrote for Circus and Good Times.[6][1]

He has appeared on the Classic Albums documentaries on the making of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, Cream's Disraeli Gears, Def Leppard's Hysteria, Nirvana's Nevermind, Metallica's Black Album, Peter Gabriel's So, Frank Zappa's Apostrophe and Over-Nite Sensation as well as Rush's Moving Pictures and 2112 albums. Fricke has also appeared on a number of Lou Reed documentaries and in the Wilco documentary I Am Trying to Break Your Heart.[7]

The Domino Recording Company released the North American version of the 30th anniversary reissue of Aztec Camera's debut album, High Land, Hard Rain, in 2014 and the liner notes are written by Fricke.[8][9]

He currently writes the "Fricke's Picks Radio" podcast and the Alternate Take blog in Rolling Stone.[10]
