    Steely Dan

    For a band that once famously rejected live gigging in favor of holing up in studios to create meticulously crafted records, Steely Dan has surprisingly become late-career road dogs. On "Think Fast," SD's fifth tour this decade alone, Donald Fagen, ...

    N.E.R.D.'s third album is the compact-disc equivalent of an ad campaign trying to appeal to the Red Bull/BlackBerry generation. "We gotta make it passionate," you can almost hear Pharrell telling the guys in the studio: "And retro! And political! Yo...

    House of Blues Changes Houston's Live Music Landscape Before Even Opening

    Whither Southern Rock?

    "Gregg Allman once told me that he hated the term Southern rock," Himes says. "Rock and roll, he pointed out, was created in the South, so all rock is Southern. To call something Southern rock, he argued, was redundant: 'It's like saying, 'Rock rock....
