Brian Smith

Tucson Weekly columnist, Brian Smith, seems to have lived multiple lives, traveling one path and then another. He was a nationally-ranked cyclist as a kid. He was the lead singer of The Pills, the Beat Angles, and Gentlemen After Dark, before becoming a full-time writer. After stints as a writer and editor at the Phoenix New Times and Detroit’s Metro Times, he came back to Tucson, where he was born. He draws upon his rich life experiences and battles with depression to tell the stories of often-marginalized people in Tucson.
