    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

    The story is so old, so familiar, as to border on the trite: A young man grows up in a poorer neighborhood, where the most affordable entertainment is the sound of his own voice, joined with those of his friends. He studies his heroes, the soul singe...

    I made this! - Blues dudes grow their own--albums, that is

    It was standard operating procedure from the '60s through the '80s: You made a tape, shopped it to labels, and hoped to get signed. "If it was the old days, that's what I'd have done; nowadays the ante's up", says Shawn Pittman. He's among a num...

    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...

    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
