Boston Phoenix music editor says bye-bye

Someone tipped me off on this last night at The Beehive, but it seems to be official.

Matt Ashare, the long-time music guru at The Boston Phoenix, has resigned. Rumor is the editor, Lance Gould, forced out the aged critic because he was out of touch with the younger, hipper scene.

Not really much of a shock.

The Phoenix has almost the exact same editorial lineup it did when I left Boston to work in NYC in the '90s. All I can say is out with the old, in with the new.
