Chicagoverse 168 - Corbin Reiff

Chicago-based music writer Corbin Reiff returns to Dynasty Podcasts, following speaking on last year's Breaking Into Professional Music Journalism panel.

Reiff delves into his newly released book, Lighters in the Sky: The All-Time Greatest Concerts 1960-2016, which chronicles the most legendary live performances ever. The writer reveals how he conducted research and gathered firsthand accounts about legendary concerts going back decades, including getting to connect with none other than The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen. Reiff and host Jaime Black also bond over their love of Kanye West and Nine Inch Nails, geeking about the live theatricality of the former, and marveling at the transformation of the latter over the last three decades. Finally, Reiff revisits the concert event that turned him onto live music, and reveals the one concert he'd attend if he had one time machine opportunity.
