First and foremost a passionate fan of rock 'n' roll, New York native Madeline Bocaro has always written independently. Madeline has contributed biographies and documentaries including Stardust: The David Bowie Story (McGraw Hill, 1986), Yoko Ono (MacMillan & Co., 1987), The Wild One – The Story of Iggy Pop (Omnibus, 1988) and Mick Ronson – The Spider with the Platinum Hair (Independent Music Press, London, 2003) and The Nomi Song (Klaus Nomi documentary film) in 2005.

She was a staff writer for CMJ from 1977 to 1981 and has also assisted other authors with articles in Mojo and Dazed & Confused magazines.
