    All for One? - The boys in the band want you to know Counting Crows is more than its lead singer

    The last time anyone looked, Counting Crows was still a plural entity -- a sextet, not a solo act. Yet if you judged by the stories written about the California band, you might assume it was a one-man operation, that man being photogenic and enigmati...

    Wicked Rush

    Back when responsible adults refrained from using words such as "smart-ass" in the presence of children, a relative of mine affectionately described certain people as "wisenheimers." And while that expression's meaning may have been mangled in transl...

    Lee Way

    Back in 1990, Houston was one of a handful of stops for the JVC jazz festival, which featured icons such as Miles Davis, Wynton Marsalis and George Benson. Also on the bill was Lee Ritenour, a less-hallowed guitarist whose ace band of top studio tale...

    Aw, Twern't Nuthin' - That's what Mike Henderson says, but his fans disagree

    Though he has experimented with a multitude of styles, the way Mike Henderson sees it, there are only two kinds of music: good music and bad music. As for Henderson, he plays good music. A veteran of hundreds of recording sessions, Henderson is ...

    Louvin It Up - The high, lonesome hardships of country's best duo are getting easier to hear

    The Louvin Brothers were country music's best-ever brother team, and when they titled their greatest album Tragic Songs of Life, they weren't kidding around. Over the course of that record, a woman wanders "this wide world all over," leaving her aban...

    End of the Road

    It surprised no one who knew him, or even anyone who knew much of him, to learn that Townes Van Zandt -- a man who by all accounts lived the Troubled Troubadour Genius myth to the verge of cliche -- had died on New Year's Day at age 52. As Keith Case...

    The Good with the Badfinger - A Houston producer pays loving tribute to an enduring -- if cursed -- band

    Badfinger could be the most star-crossed band in the history of rock and roll. During their time on the planet as the sometimes plastic, more often authentic, scions of the Beatles, misfortune smiled upon the British foursome all too often. For a gro...
