While other reviewers offer cookie-cutter copy-and-paste rehashes for their work, Gail Worley is different. Her reviews and interviews are well thought-out and well written. It's immediately obvious she has actually listened to the music with an open mind, and then honestly gives you her opinions. I only wish more reviewers of independent artists would show the kind of respect and devotion to their craft as Gail does.

Matt Laug and Gail

Gail interviewed me for Modern Drummer Magazine back in 2001. To this day, I still get compliments from all over the place on how cool the interview turned out. Thanks again, Gail!

Lucia Cifarelli, Vocalist, KMFDM

Gail wrote a review of a performance I did with my former band, Drill, long before I met her. Her description of the performance and what I was trying to say at that time were illustrated with incredible perception and poetry. All new artists should be as lucky as I, to have her out there in the audience. I think my favorite quote she wrote was, “She looked like she was having her spinal chord removed without benefit of anesthesia.” Over the years, Gail has been accessible to me in a way few others have been. I feel truly blessed to call her my friend. She is a genius journalist, a rare breed.

If Gail say's it, then you better listen up! She knows what she likes and is not afraid to tell you about it. This lady possesses some serious "hang factor." Gail Worley ROCKS with the best of them!

Steven Gillis, Drummer, Filter

I had a great interview with Gail for Modern Drummer and it was obvious to me she came prepared. She asked specific questions about the songs and my playing on the latest Filter record, The Amalgamut, and seemed genuinely interested in my background as a musician. I could really sense she had a little extra enthusiasm for getting a great interview. I can't wait for the next one!
