It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Brian Kellow. Please read these two tributes from Opera News and Fred Plotkin. Please consider purchasing Brian’s books from his website if you do not already own them.
Welcome to FollowKellow.com—a new arts blog focused on movies, theater, opera, classical music, and literary figures. My wish is to serve up a unique perspective and commentary on individuals and events in the current cultural landscape.
I'm thrilled to be making my debut in the Blogosphere with FollowKellow. I will offer you arts reviews and opinion pieces that are frank and provocative but always fair--plus incisive interviews with some of the leaders in today's arts world. Cinema is my first love, and there will be essays on current films, plus "Screen and Screen Again"—a look at the old movies I can't—and don't want to—get out of my mind. And I'll offer behind-the-scenes portraits of some of the memorable people I've met in my life as a biographer and journalist.
When I was growing up, the arts mattered to me more than anything else. They still do. This blog will show you why.
