    Chris Masterson & Eleanor Whitmore

    Anyone who saw 13-year-old Chris Masterson shredding a Strat at the Fabulous Satellite Lounge or Big Easy in the late '80s probably had a clue the little guy was going to grow to have some serious stature in the world of guitars. And Masterson hasn'...

    King's X

    Simply put, King's X is a marvel. The Katy-based trio has been hanging around the margins of hard rock for nearly 30 years; next year marks the 20th anniversary of Gretchen Goes to Nebraska ("Summerland," "Over My Head"), one of the pivotal albums o...

    Aterciopelados: Rio

    Ludacris: Theater of the Mind

    Ludacris's strength as a rapper has been, and always will be, an unfortunate irony: he's a schizophrenic mess of disputatious bravado and wit. It serves him well on guest appearances and mixtapes, when his bawling spit is leashed by time restraints ...

    Waylon Jennings & the .357s: Waylon Forever

    Caught in a Mosh at The Pitt - Teen metal aggression finds an outlet in Pasadena

    It's just gone nearly pitch-black inside Pasadena all-ages metal stomping ground The Pitt (109 N. Spooner), and all things considered, we'd prefer it hadn't. We're not trying to be all cutesy-ironic, like, "Oh, look at us, we're afraid of clowns, ...

    The Best Christmas Album of 2008 is... Metal?

    Cutout Bin: Stryken's First Strike

    There's the kind of album cover that is so obviously bad, it has to be a joke. Then there's the kind that's so much worse, it couldn't possibly be a joke. First Strike falls into the latter category. Stryken was a Christian metal band from Austin...
