Paul Williams Obituary Analysis

| No Comments

Link
This obituary has a standard obituary lead.
The news value is rather low because most people do not follow rock journalism and professional critics of rock. Also the magazine is not nationally followed as it was surpassed by Rolling Stone.
The story of someone's life is much more personable compared to the listing of a resume. It goes into detail what he accomplished and provides what others thought of him. You really get a picture of who this person was throughout life, not just work.
Sources include: his wife; Peter Knobler, the man who took over Paul Williams editor position; Robert Christgau, and Paul Williams himself
