Jon Wiederhorn is a veteran music freelancer, though he hates using the word "veteran" because it makes him feel old. However, since he's referred to hundreds of band as "veterans' whose members are around his age, he has given in to the term in the hopes it makes him sound distinguished or knowledgeable. Over the past 20 years he has worked on staff at Rolling Stone, Guitar Magazine, MTV and CMJ, has been a columnist for Stuff and hosted metal podcasts for MTV's HeadbangersBall Blog and AOL Noisecreep. He is currently a Senior Writer for Revolver and regularly contributes to Guitar World, eMusic.com and SPIN. He has also written for Penthouse, Metal Hammer, Raw, Rip and Thrasher. His first two books, "Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal," and "Ministry: The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen," will come out later this year.
