    Rocker, Texas Ranger - Baboon kicks Chuck Norris' ass in a Deep Ellum club...sort of

    It is 9 in the morning, a time most musicians do not see unless their day jobs beckon or they wake up to find themselves in the unfortunate embrace of a sleepover mistake. Deep Ellum usually does not wake at this hour, either, save for the constructi...

    Lonely Hunter - After a self-imposed exile in Mexico and obscurity, a Texas bluesman comes home

    Long John Hunter had a gig the day after he picked up a guitar. No shit. One minute he's working at a Beaumont box factory and reluctantly on his way to see B.B. King at the Raven Club at the insistence of some fellow workers; two days later, he's a ...

    Back on the bus - HighTone's Roadhouse tour revives rock and roll caravan

    The art of implication - Vince Bell's been dead once, and he's got the record to prove it

    Record label executives like to say, in that snide sideways-speak they call language, that artists can't sell records unless they have a story to tell. They insist the music doesn't always speak for itself, and that an artist must first have a gimmic...
