Bill Holdship

Former member of Let's Talk About Girls with his brother Barry Holdship, Bill Holdship and John Kordosh were both involved in CREEM's move to Los Angeles after it was purchased by Arnold Levitt, but both had already left the magazine before its move to New York City after Levitt licensed the name to a publisher there, and its ultimate demise.

Bill Holdship is a former editor of CREEM, BAM, HITS, and Daily Variety, among others, and a longtime contributor to such publications as the early SPIN, Musician, MOJO, and damn near every "alternative" newspaper and magazine Los Angeles ever produced. Most recently, he was the music editor of an "alternative" Detroit newspaper in his native Michigan after 21 years on the West Coast. Despite scoring exclusives with Eminem and Iggy & the Stooges, he was not prepared for the reverse cultural shock – but still believes that The Beach Boys can make almost almost any situation seem slightly better.
