Lillian Roxon was a noted Australian journalist and author, a pioneer of rock music writing and criticism and author of the world's first encyclopedia of rock.
Lillian began her university education at the University of Queensland, at a time when it was still rare for women to undertake tertiary studies.
Roxon's health declined during the early Seventies as she struggled with her asthma and juggled a haphazard treatment regime, often advised by mail or phone by a doctor friend in Australia, who supplied her with medicines not available in the United States.

He and Lillian had been lovers for a time at university in Brisbane, and Rabin (then the chief of the Sydney Sun's New York bureau) employed Lillian when she first arrived in New York in 1959, but he died of melanoma in 1966 and his death affected her greatly.
A few years later Roxon fell out in spectacular fashion with two female friends, despite the fact that she did much to promote both of them, and these rifts were a source of great unhappiness for her in her last years.
Linda's shutting-out of Lillian -- which Milliken suggests was instigated by the press-wary Paul -- clearly caused Roxon deep distress, and sadly it was a breach that was still unsealed when she died.

Lillian Roxon thrived during New York City's turbulent 1960s as a journalist, author, and popular figure at Max's Kansas City, the haunt of memorable personalities ranging from Janis Joplin to Andy Warhol.
Rock'n'roll was a singular part of it all, and Lillian wrote about it and its culture for numerous publications with a passion and insight that culminated in her classic Rock Encyclopedia (1969), which earned her the recognition she deserved.
Australian journalist Milliken (No Conceivable Injury) tells Roxon's story with honesty and compassion-her family's emigration from a troubled Europe, her bohemian years in Australia, her early tabloid experience, her career as rock music critic in New York-offering a vivid depiction of the eventful but all-too-brief life of this independent, freethinking, and talented woman.

One of its most notable staffers was renowned rock writer and journalist Lillian Roxon, who wrote for the magazine for several years in the mid-1950s before moving to New York.
According to Roxon's biographer, Robert Milliken, Weekend had a fairly bad reputation in "polite society" -- it was considered very "downmarket" and often featured lurid stories, often with sexual overtones.
Roxon's mother was horrified by the idea of her daughter working for such a publication and reportedly concealed the fact from friends and family.

Lillian Roxon was most famous as one of the first rock critics to reach a wide audience.
She was an unusual and somewhat tragic figure -- older than the great majority of both the musicians she was writing about and the other early rock writers, and also given to workaholic behavior, a somewhat unhappy personal life, and weight and health problems that contributed to her death in the early 1970s.
Roxon actually came to rock criticism fairly late in her professional career; she was in her mid-thirties by the time she was making a mark in the still-infant discipline, and had already worked for quite some time as a journalist who didn't specialize in music.
