Don’t Let it Be (Lolipop Records). Review by Christopher Long.
Christopher Long braved his way into one of Orlando’s nastiest venues to get a glimpse of one of today’s grooviest bands, Palaye Royale.
God of rock ‘n’ roll flute and leader of Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson, opens his US tour in Orlando. Carl F Gauze watches from the balcony and tries not to get too distracted by the aging fans and their frail bladders.
Tragically, The Knack‘s career has come to a close with the passing of frontman/ songwriter/ guitarist Doug Fieger on Valentine’s Day 2010. Steve Stav remembers the man, resurrecting this interview conducted for Ink 19 a few days after Fieger’s 53rd birthday in 2005.
One of America’s best live bands, Wilco, try not to overextend themselves as they work out the kinks on the first date of their current U.S. tour. Sean Slone caught the beginning of the long, hot trek in Cincinnati.
Not too many bands could recruit Pearl Jam as an opening act, but the boys from Rockford, Illinois once did. Steve Stav, who once asked his mom if she could knit him a checkered sweater, corrals guitarist Rick Nielsen for an expectedly humorous look at America’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll show.
Liza Hearon talks to Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein about women in rock, Eddie Vedder and watching 13-year-olds make out in front of the stage.
