    Funk Brothers - The Stone River Boys' debut Love on the Dial is as much Joe Tex as Buck Owens.

    Former Hollisters front man Mike Barfield and Paladins guitar whiz Dave Gonzales seem like an odd musical pairing but, according to both, it's actually entirely logical. "I met Mike the first time I ever played Houston, around 1982," says Gonzales...
