    Gang of snore On the face of it, which is about as deep as you can go with this band, there's nothing much to like about Elastica and everything to hate about them: They're such a rip-off of Gang of Four and Wire they've been taken to court on ch...

    Crossing guard - Springsteen's Ghost is a soft touch in hard times

    A languid harmonica, the trumpet of the downtrodden, is the first sound you hear on Bruce Springsteen's new LP The Ghost of Tom Joad. Then comes the gentle tug of guitar strings and a voice too wise, too weary to worry about enunciating last syllable...

    From hereto eternity - Frank Sinatra isn't dead.He's just an 80-year-old man

    No performer ever had to grow up in public like Frank Sinatra. No one has ever had every second of his adult life chronicled with so much detail and tenacity--in film, in photos, in books, and most certainly in song. As a result, he is man and myth i...

    Live and demystified - More man than legend, Bob Dylan brings it all back home

    Before his November 7 appearance at the Dallas Music Complex, Bob Dylan hadn't performed in Dallas since his 1990 concert at the Fair Park Music Hall. It was a sit-down (and scratch-your-head) affair, with Dylan blurring the line between mattering an...

    King Curtis - A rockabilly hero is revered abroad, ignored at home

    When Mac Curtis visited England in December 1977, it was not as a tourist, but as a long-awaited hero. Maybe even as something of a god. Curtis had not performed in front of a crowd like this in nearly 20 years, but when he stepped up to the mic...
