About the Authors:
Steve Pick was born in 1958 in St. Louis, Missouri. His life-long interest in music became an obsession when he cofounded Jet Lag magazine in 1980, then spent 13 years reviewing concerts and writing a music column for the St. Louis
Post-Dispatch. From 1988 through 1993, and again from 2001 to the present, he has hosted a weekly radio show on
KDHX-FM. In his lifetime, he has seen more than half the musicians in this book play live. Amanda E. Doyle is a St.
Louis transplant (via Memphis, Florida, and Mizzou) and ardent city resident. She got kicked out of her first concert
at age 6, which began a lifetime of great shows and diverse musical interests. Sheís written for visitor publications in
several cities, and has authored 5 previous books, including 100 Things to Do in St. Louis Before You Die, Missouri Almanac
2018-2019, and Standing Up for Civil Rights in St. Louis. She lives with her husband, two children, a nutty cat, and an
elderly Chihuahua in south St. Louis.
