Steve Futterman

Journalist Steve Futterman has been writing about music since the early 1980s.   


The kind of high school student who spent far too time inhaling rock music, attending concerts and memorizing album liner notes, Steve followed the path of destiny and began working at Rolling Stone magazine soon after graduation from New York University. Over the next three-plus decades his work appeared in numerous national publications including the New York Times and The New Yorker. Iconic musicians he has conducted interviews with include Charlie Watts, Jack Bruce, Al Kooper, Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller and Ry Cooder. While his musical interests have expanded over the years, Steve is proud to harbor a near obsessive devotion to the music of the 1960s and 70’s. 

Steve Futterman

Popular music was my emotional lifeline as an adolescent, and my intense passion for the sounds that guided me through my formative years and beyond has never ceased. Classic rock is a gift that keeps on giving, nourishing both those who grew up with these durable songs as well as those younger listeners newly drawn to the music. I want to share my fervor for these great artists and their imperishable art with anyone who responds to the music’s undeniable power.
