Art is a rock and pop culture critic. He's both gonzo journalist and investigative reporter. He doesn't drink craft coffee, and enjoys a regular lunch at Canter's Deli. You can find him at a Starbucks (or the mahogany benches at Union Station) writing about Guns N' Roses and young Hollywood. Background: Art interned for Tom Cruise in 2006.
