    All-American reject - Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong grows up

    Billie Joe Armstrong could be forgiven a bit of ego. After all, his band, Green Day, sold more than 9 million copies of its major-label debut, 1994's Dookie, and almost singlehandedly brought punk rock back above ground. In fact, Spin magazine crowne...

    Roadshows

    Where you going? Where You Been, the 1993 album from noise-rock pioneers Dinosaur Jr, held the promise of great things to come. "Start Choppin," "On The Way," and "Get Me" combined the band's trademark fuzzed-out guitar skronk with tight arrange...

    East Side soul music - The Blazers return with a record Just for You--and, hopefully, many others

    As downtown Los Angeles fades to a smoggy silhouette in the rear-view mirror, the freeway winds past Olvera Street and toward cities with names such as Hacienda Heights and La Puente, reminders of Los Angeles' true heritage. Although East Los Angeles...

    If at first you don't succeed... The first time Ray Condo and his Ricochets toured Texas, things didn't go so well. The gig previous to their appearance in Dallas--in Bryan-College Station--had been less than auspicious. "They can pull in a coupl...

    Soul brother number one - Ray Charles rules a far-flung kingdom

    He's the man Frank Sinatra called "the only genius in our business." He's written some of the greatest pop songs of our era, yet has never really considered himself a writer, saying that he did it merely to put bread on the table. His history is full...

    Working on a building - Last Beat is the local scene's full-service stop

    It's an age-old trade-off that exists in most art forms, but music probably illustrates it better than most: Work at the local level and enjoy the support of people who are familiar with you, who understand your vision and your process, and who have ...

    Through the past (lightly) - The Rolling Stones grind along in their worn-out money machine

    When Keith Richards gets aroused, he gets a wild, distant look in his eye, his voice cracks, and his left leg rises slightly, the way a cat's hindquarters do when you stroke its butt. It happens when he plays a signature guitar line, like in "Honky T...

    Goin' through them changes - The slow healing of Buddy Miles

    Night of the Hunter - Homage is harder than it looks

    Unlikely hybrid - The cocktail country of the Lucky Pierres proves to be the right mix
