J.C. Maçek III is an American journalist,[1][2] writer,[3] film critic,[1][4][5] author, actor and film producer.[6]

Maçek has written for in such publications as PopMatters,[1][6] Rotten Tomatoes,[5] Spectrum Culture[7] and The Hill.[8]

Music journalism

Maçek is also known for celebrity rock star interviews such as with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry,[9] Faith No More's Billy Gould,[10] The Cult guitarist Billy Duffy,[11] Judas Priest bassist Ian Hill,[12] The Zombies keyboardist Rod Argent[13] and Bad Religion lead vocalist Greg Graffin.[14]

In an August 2014 article, Consequence of Sound magazine quoted Maçek's review of Roger Waters' The Wall Live Tour:[15]

"As an immersive concert experience, however, The Wall is an entirely different beast. Its harsh, theatrical nature pulls the audience deep into its storyline and its visuals create the illusion of actually being inside a dynamic, frightening and engrossing movie. Yes, The Wall live is every bit as cinematic as its actual cinema-released counterpart film Pink Floyd – The Wall and will remain a milestone in Pink Floyd and Roger Waters history. The Wall Live has truly been more than a concert tour, but an anti-war, pro-music, theatrical, cinematic, brilliant, inspiring truly immersive, multi-media experience that compliments the history of The Wall and, perhaps, brings it one step farther in its story."

Writing career

In 2016, Maçek published his debut novel Seven Ways to Die: A Jake Slater Mystery.[6][16]
