robRob Perez has loved music ever since he was in grade school, listening to his AM/FM Cassette Walkman in the morning, then again after school. He began giving his opinion on music in college, first for the long out of print Island Ear based in Long Island, then Right On! Magazine, Nochelatina.com, and several other websites in between. A self-confessed non-music snob, he has praised The Backstreet Boys “Millennium” album as one of the best albums of the 90’s, and has given Selena Gomez her due as a rising artist. But his tastes lies more in alternative, indie, Latin rock, electronica and techno. He’s covered rap concerts, Woodstock ’99, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, and music conferences. When he’s not listening to Sirius XMU, he’s watching movies of various genres or reading non-fiction books about history or espionage.
