Word arrived this month that I won a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship for my project on the rock band Jane’s Addiction’s original years 1985-1991 in LA and beyond. I’m surprised and elated and grateful. I’ve applied for that fellowship a half dozen times over twenty years. I guess seventh time is charm. Here is the Guggenheim’s page for me.
The photograph above is from the November 14, 1990 edition of The Daily Tar Heel at UNC-Chapel Hill. I attended that show and wrote a little bit about it HERE. Much more to come, the fellowship enabling me to pursue digressions aplenty.
