    Next step - Colin Boyd's no doormat

    One of the big pitfalls lurking under the surface of most versions of romantic love is an implied masochism, an idea that suffering is somehow relative to emotional depth. It's what scuttles most of what could be referred to (sneeringly or not) as "s...

    The nutty professors - Has the science of Stereolab gone too cool for its own good?

    Conducting interviews over the telephone is always a difficult task--especially when you're relying on a scratchy overseas connection--but when the person on the other end of the line is Tim Gane, co-founder of Stereolab, the cracks and pops are stra...

    Rap gets puffy - Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs fathers a return to hip-hop pop

    Puff Daddy & the Family's No Way Out is as stunningly slack a piece of work as has ever been issued by a major rap act. Puff Daddy, born Sean Combs, has one of the weakest verbal flows of all time: He mouths wan rhymes in a pinched, charisma-free mon...

    A tale of two venues - The difference between the Stones' two area appearances was more setting than set list

    The Rolling Stones--an atmospheric disturbance more predictable and (nowadays, at least) considerably less disruptive than El Nino--blew through the area last week, playing Owen Field in Norman, Oklahoma, on Tuesday, October 28, and Fort Worth's Texa...

    Hassle class - Roadcrew tries to ease the rigors of playing live

    In the old days, rock and roll was an alternative to school, the spirit of rebellion and the defiance of convention. That's all well and good for audience members, but what those trying to make a living in the rock world soon found out was that certa...

    The wizard of odd - Or, why too much Pet Sounds is a bad thing

    During a recent VH1 documentary on the making of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, Lindsey Buckingham sat behind the console, fiddling with knobs and dials until he managed to separate out each piece of one particular song. He isolated the vocal tracks, the m...

    You invent the future - How ignoring their past left Fleetwood Mac a band out of time

    Reputation and fame--how many people will show up for your show, or buy a souvenir--are two sides of the same coin in the world of rock and roll, and proper attention to one can make up for deficiencies in the other. With the possible exception of So...

    Crossing the color line - Tony Perez defies soul conventions
