Gerri Miller, a veteran lifestyle and entertainment journalist who had also contributed to a variety of print and web outlets, including Glamour, People.com, MNN.com, Lupus Now, Muscle & Fitness, Jewish Journal, Brain World, FromtheGrapevine.com and ScienceNewsForStudents.com, died in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 14 after a six-month battle with cancer. She was 67 years old.
Metal Edge had been publishing for 24 years before closing its doors in 2009. Covering bands across the hard rock spectrum — from classic metal to thrash to punk — Metal Edge was considered a leading voice in the mainstream metal media. Launched in 1985, Metal Edge was published twelve times a year — providing in-depth coverage of current musical acts, including band profiles, news of the latest releases and coverage of the biggest tours.
Miller edited Metal Edge for 14 years before spending the last decade working almost exclusively in Jewish journalism, mostly at the Jewish Journal Of Greater Los Angeles.
Members of GUNS N’ ROSES, KISS, SKID ROW, MÖTLEY CRÜE, ANTHRAX are among the musicians who have reacted on social media to the passing of longtime Metal Edge editor Gerri Miller.
