Journobit: Carol Clerk

More sad news via Everett True's blog: Carol Clerk, news editor at Melody Maker, died earlier today. True's words, and the warmth of the comments on the piece, say a lot about a woman who was able to keep herself held in high regard despite working at the interfaces of the music and journalism industries.

More recently her work had been appearing in Uncut and she published several books. A collection of her pieces is held at Rock's Back Pages.
