    The Truth is out there - Erykah Badu profits from her role as soul music's last, best prophet

    At first, you can hear the weariness in her voice--even over a long-distance connection from New York, where she's performing at Radio City Music Hall, even over the gurgles and cries of her baby son, Seven, who sounds as though he's trying to swallo...

    Vote the rock - Just call these the Old 97's Observer Music Awards

    Divide and conquer - Robbie Robertson throws history into the bonfire

    His earliest memories are of childhood days spent on the reservation, listening to his mother's relatives tell stories, play music, pass down traditions as though they were a child's outgrown clothes. He was born in May 1944, the son of a Mohawk moth...

    Funk that - James Brown used them. Hip-hoppers stole from them. Will these women finally get their due?
