b.1958
Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, Brad Tolinski played guitar and electric violin in numerous bands until it became painfully clear at the age of 25 that he needed to find gainful employment. In the mid-Eighties he moved to New York City and became the Managing Editor of the groundbreaking magazine Music, Computers & Software.
In 1989 he joined the staff of Guitar World magazine as Managing Editor and shortly thereafter became Editor-In-Chief, a position he has held ever since. He currently serves as Editorial Director of Future US's music division, which includes Guitar World, Revolver, and Guitar Aficionado.
