Anne Moore

Anne Moore

Anne Moore started writing about the crazies of rock 'n' roll during her first year in college (when that was she refuses to tell us). But it was early enough to see and interview many of the great rockers from the so-called "classic" era and to even spend the "summer of love" in swinging London. During this period Anne wrote for World Countdown, Teen Screen, FaVE, Phonograph Record Magazine, CREEM, LA Image, Fusion, Concert, The Los Angeles Free Press and dozens of other publications.

Anne parlayed her eclectic knowledge of the music scene to a job at United Artist/Liberty Records as their National Director of College Promotion and traveled all over the United States for the company. Later she worked in PR for several European groups and local LA bands, from Blue Swede to the Hollywood Stars and Zolar X.

At the moment, Anne is writing more about TV and movie stars then music and musicians, primarily for European magazines. She is also beginning a mystery novel, which has nothing to do about music... at least not yet.
