We are stunned to learn of the sudden passing of Paul J. Pelkonen, an independent critic on the New York music scene and an occasional contributor to Slipped Disc.
The cause of death is said to be a heart attack.
A gourmand and lover of life, Paul was in a relationship with Emily Ravich for 13 years. His website, Superconductor, was always astute and informative. He was friendly, cooperative, full of ideas and fun. Paul will be very widely missed.
