Quirk to Google?

GOOGLE QUIRK? Looks like ex-Rhapsody executive Tim Quirk has landed at Google, according to a report in Digital Music News.  Quirk apparently confirmed the move in a brief Twitter post, though the details of the position remain unclear.  Whether Quirk will head the Google Music initiative isn't clear, though the company appears to be creating a team for its foray into the area. Quirk was VP Music Programming at Rhapsody. He spent more than 10 years as the singer and lyricist for the punk-pop band Too Much Joy, then was a regular contributor to popular publications including Raygun and the San Francisco Chronicle, and his critical essays have been published in anthologies by the Oxford University Press and the academic journal Popular Music. Tim is also one half of an electro-pop outfit called Wonderlick.  He received a B.A. in communications from Stanford University, and an M.F.A. in Dramatic Writing from NYU. (10/19a)
