About Keith Miniscalco
Greg Kot has been the Chicago Tribune's pop and rock music critic since 1990. His work has been honored by the American Association of Sunday and Feature Editors, the Society of Professional Journalists, and Brill's Content magazine. Chicago magazine selected him as the city's finest critic in any discipline. Along with being a regular contributor to Rolling Stone and other national periodicals, he is the music analyst for Fox TV morning newscasts. Kot's books include Wilco: Learning How to Die (Broadway Books, 2004), Ripped: How the Wired Generation Revolutionized Music (Scribner, 2010), and I'll Take You There: Mavis Staples, the Staple Singers, and the Music That Shaped the Civil Rights Era (Scribner, 2014).
In his spare time, Kot is a youth basketball coach and is proud to say that both his daughters survived his coaching and went on to lead happy and productive lives (so far, at least). He and his partners operate Over the Edge, a travel-team program based in Chicago that prepares grade-school athletes to compete at a high school level with an emphasis on the fundamentals.
Kot has lived on Chicago's Northwest Side through numerous character-building winters with his wife, Deb, two daughters, and far too many records.
