    Playbill - Coming This Week

    It's a choice bands in America are forced to make in the quest for stardom: get on the radio or take it on the road. For groups such as Los Angeles-based Static X, radio isn't really an option. Even though commercial radio's "heavy band" quota has be...

    Soul Brother No. 1 - Top 10 reasons why Ray Charles is a genius

    Music writers toss around the term genius so often the word is almost meaningless. Madonna's a genius. Kurt Cobain was a genius. Trent Reznor's a genius. Yeah, right. Fact is, musical geniuses don't come around so often. The 20th century has produced...

    Ideal Houstonians - Local R&B quartet "gets the hell on"

    On the CD sleeve of Ideal's latest record, the name of the song is "Get Gone." But in Houston (and probably other parts of the country by now), the song is referred to by its most noticeable, most frank line: "Get the Hell On." The phrase is like a s...
