BILL GRA­HAM

Hot Press - - Contents -

Bill Gra­ham wrote for Hot Press, from its in­cep­tion in 1977 un­til his death in 1996. A grad­u­ate of Trin­ity Col­lege, Bill was one of the main jour­nal­is­tic forces in the early days of the mag­a­zine. He pos­sessed a keen in­tel­lect and an abid­ing pas­sion for all gen­res of mu­sic. He was also a key men­tor and ad­vi­sor to the young U2. Most cru­cially, he in­tro­duced them to the man who be­came their man­ager, Paul McGuin­ness. Bill wrote the story of U2’s early years in the book, An­other Time An­other Place. In this is­sue, we re­print his won­der­fully com­pelling re­view of The Joshua Tree, in all its orig­i­nal glory.
