Jon graduated from the University of Missouri with a magazine journalism degree. He wishes he had Alex Chilton's vocal cords. Diver Down is his favorite Van Halen album. Sometimes he goes to thrift stores and looks for rare LPs. He never finds anything rare and ends up seeing Dan Fogelberg's face a lot.
Favorite artists: The Replacements, Big Star, Japandroids, Fiona Apple, Superchunk, Archers of Loaf, The Verlaines, OutKast, Guns 'N Roses, Sebadoh, Al Green, Pulp, Suede, Yo La Tengo, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Baroness.
