B-Side Magazine Co-Founder Dead

Last Tuesday, Dec. 19, Carol Schutzbank, co-founder and

editor of seminal East Coast fanzine B-Side, died at the Temple University

Hospital when her body rejected a transplanted heart; her own heart had been

crippled by a massive heart attack in February of this year, due to a rare

disease. Schutzbank was a prime mover on the Philadelphia underground rock

scene booking local clubs, managing groups and in 1987 co-founding

B-Side magazine with Sandy Garcia and Sandy Davis. She also founded the

greater Philadelphia music awards, the Delaware Valley Music Poll Awards.

Funeral services were held in Trenton on Friday Dec. 22 at the synagogue she

and her family regularly attended over the years.
