The series revealing the oddest, most miserable or embarrassing concert experiences in our music critics’ past brings us to Troy Reimink’s recollections of Pearl Jam, Built To Spill, Phil Collins and a band he still knows absolutely nothing about.
Troy is a veteran writer and musician. He is a member of the Grand Rapids band Ghost Heart, a music/video librarian for AMI Jukeboxes and a counter duty guy at Vertigo Music. He has worked for the Detroit Free Press and the Grand Rapids Press as a music writer, web producer and editor, and is cofounder of the Pyne Lodge, a podcast devoted to local music history.
