2013: Paul Williams, the journalist and publisher who founded the magazine Crawdaddy!, dies at age 64 at his home in California from complications related to a 1995 bicycle accident. A traumatic brain injury suffered in the accident led to early onset of dementia. Williams created Crawdaddy!, the first American magazine of rock music criticism, in January 1966 on the campus of Swarthmore College outside of Philadelphia with first issue consisting of 10 mimeographed pages written entirely by himself.
