    Blues with a feeling - Paul Size, ex-Red Devil guitarist and one-time Jagger sideman, leaves L.A. and returns home

    Paul Size doesn't recall much about the day (or even the exact year) he went into the studio with Mick Jagger--or, for that matter, if it was a day at all. It might have been two days spent recording with the flabby icon, might have been even more a...

    Dead man rapping - "The D.O.C." returns with a new record and a score to settle

    His mother begged him not to sue. Rapper Tracy "The D.O.C." Curry says this in a rasp that sounds a little like resurrection's whisper and a lot like Miles Davis' parched bark. "She's afraid something bad is going to happen to me," the 27-year-old Da...

    More a legend than a band - Sloppy and perfect, Golden Smog is the best of all worlds

    Supergroup--it's rock and roll's greatest oxymoron, where the sum of one part is greater than the whole. It's a great theory that always backfires. It's a term that dates back to 1969, when Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Steve Winwood crammed t...
