Sad news today for the local rock music reporting scene. Early last night, Kevin Bronson from the LA Times sent out an e-mail titled "Yeah, it's true." The body of the e-mail broke the news. "I'm history. My last day at the Times is Friday." He then linked to Kevin Roderick's post about the massive amounts of layoffs at the paper. Bronson was a huge asset to the Times and had a wonderful blog called Buzz Bands until it was folded into Soundboard. He wrote that the Airborne Toxic Event, The Deadly Syndrome, and Castledoor were three bands to watch in 2008. And he was right.
