Grantland Network Podcast: Kurt Loder and Chris Connelly on MTV’s Golden Age


For a generation, he was the iconic anchor of MTV News; now the incomparable rock and roll journalist and critic Kurt Loder reviews movies. In our conversation, Kurt shares candid tales of his encounters with Axl Rose, Madonna, Kurt Cobain, the Ramones, and more of rock’s hardest-living legends while looking back at the years we shared as colleagues on MTV and before that, at Rolling Stone. When the talk turns to film, Kurt discusses his kickass new book of reviews, The Good, the Bad and the God-Awful and reveals his horror-flick-enriched childhood, his fascination with the work of Nicolas Cage, and the one movie that — can it be? — still makes him cry.
