    Dead man rapping - "The D.O.C." returns with a new record and a score to settle

    His mother begged him not to sue. Rapper Tracy "The D.O.C." Curry says this in a rasp that sounds a little like resurrection's whisper and a lot like Miles Davis' parched bark. "She's afraid something bad is going to happen to me," the 27-year-old Da...

    T.C.B. or T.Y.A. - Bobby Patterson, Dallas' great unsung soul singer, gets his Second chance

    A wise man--perhaps it was James Brown, or maybe it was Don Rickles--once said that when someone calls you a legend, they just mean you're looking for work. It's a title writers give to the has-beens and never-weres, the guys who had their shot, watc...

    Kicking his habit - Billy Goat's Mike Dillontries to live down his past
