Small Talk: How to Read the Latest Batch of Rock Tell-Alls

Read enough rock memoirs and, after a while, their salacious revelations of sex, drugs, and regret begin to sound like small talk. "Nice weather we're having, huh?" you ask. "Yes, yes," Rod Stewart says. "Reminds me of the time me…

David Lindley: Show Preview

David Lindley doesn't have the name value of Dolly Parton, Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, or Warren Zevon, but seeing as his résumé features stints playing alongside those heavyweights (plus many others), there's gotta be something special about the man. Since…

I do social work for a developmentally disabled client who loves to play pool. I'll call her Sylvia. She also likes bars, although she only drinks Cokes. Lucky for us, bars and pool tables go hand in hand, and she…

Music, Reviewed Usher

Usher

You really can't fault entertainers who claim "playa for life" status. At least they're being honest; everyone from Rod Stewart to video performer-turned-tell-all-author Karrine "Superhead" Steffans knows the promiscuous can't be reformed. Once you get a taste of the easy-lovin',…

Hear This

Those Darn Accordions! There's something scary, stoopid, and just a little repulsive about a half-dozen accordionists who try to rock out on tunes about the dispossessed. Memorable odes on No Strings Attached, the latest disc by Those Darn Accordions!, describe…
