    Battle Scars - Cypress Hill's B Real looks to the future, but can't forget his past

    There's no need to impress upon Cypress Hill's Louis Freese that the Devil loves to frolic in the City of Angels. More than once around Los Angeles, Freese has caught Satan's hellish gaze and lived to tell about it. Freese -- known to his fans as nas...

    Plugging in to Rod... Like Eric Clapton and a few other graying rockers, Rod Stewart has found occupational rejuvenation and renewed respect thanks, in part, to MTV's once-irrepressible "unplugged" phenomenon. Stewart's 1993 release, Unplugged ... an...

    Moon Men - Luna may be vague about what it wants to say, but it's memorable in how it says it

    Dean Wareham, reluctant leader of the band Luna, prefers to work in lyrical fragments instead of straightforward stories. It helps, then, that his pieces tend to be more interesting than whatever tale he's trying to tell at the time. Granted, lyrical...

    Ghetto Do-Gooders - The 5th Ward Boyz may not be saints, but they're not sinners either

    Around the Fifth Ward they call it the circle. It's not a gang or a posse. It's not some hoodoo religion, empowerment philosophy or activist movement. The circle is love -- tough love, at times. It's a refuge from the realities of the street, and yet...

    Sound Check

    For decades, America has been described as a melting pot; lately, some dissenters have begun describing it as more of a tossed salad. Ammunition for both sides of that argument can be found in our roots-music heritage. Sounds from around the world ha...

    Old-Fashioned Lust Songs - After two decades, AC/DC still stands for down and dirty fun

    Time for all the hipsters to come clean. You're driving down the interstate, channel surfing the radio with one hand, balancing a beverage with the other, steering with your knees and searching for that one tune that will propel you to the next gas s...

    Harmonica Half-Pint

    Think of Brody Buster as the Macaulay Culkin of the blues. He's young and talented; he's an almost overnight sensation; he's aw-shucks cute; he's got an impressive work ethic and a mature outlook; and he has just as much fun as Culkin hamming it up w...

    Hot Torch

    These days, you're lucky if a decent torch singer's voice gets you a dime for a cup of coffee. So you can bet it's more than just her bruisingly beautiful singing that gives Austin-based crooner Toni Price an edge over the competition. Credit in part...
