    Where Have All the Good Tunes Gone?

    It's not easy being David Lee Roth. Notwithstanding his renewed TV ubiquity (via the canny use of "You Really Got Me" in that GI-Joe-in-a-Nissan ad), life for the former Van Halen frontman has not been kind lately. First, having shed another lead sin...

    Four-Track Minds

    Punk rock's greatest strength was its ability to crumble the wall separating technically proficient musicians and inspired, caterwauling amateurs -- its insistence that anyone could form a band. With advances in technology making multitrack recording...

    Into the Night

    Fall is the time for fashion, fashion, fashion -- fashionable clothes, fashionable clubs, fashionable ideas. And what could be more fashionable than rock musicians? A bevy of such congregate tonight (Thursday) and for the following three nights at Ro...

    Rotations

    Boxing Gandhis Howard (Atlantic) Rock critics of the early Seventies did our best to banish all thought of eclecticism, since it was usually a key word denoting fraud of the art-rock or jazz-rock sort. No one ever called Bitches Brew ecle...

    Still Blue

    In a pop world where female musicians are designed, micromanaged, and as carefully positioned in the marketplace as a new brand of air freshener, how wonderfully earthy and real is the art of Joni Mitchell. As a writer immersed in all the current fem...

    Alien Visitors

    Shtick is hard to pull off in rock and roll, whether you're dressed up in patriot garb a la Paul Revere and the Raiders, stomping around a dry-iced stage in monster boots and makeup (e.g., Kiss), or clad in yellow latex suits and proclaiming in anthe...

    Soul Deep

    One day in 1951, a light bulb flashed over the head of Ernie Young, the white proprietor of Ernie's Record Mart in Nashville, Tennessee. After watching his customers buy black gospel and R&B records, Young figured that if he made the records, there'd...

    Into the Night

    Now that winter is slowly rolling in -- the period affectionately called "season" in clubland -- so are the parties. Eighties opulence abounds on Saturday when the Jockey Club (11111 Biscayne Blvd., North Miami, 893-3344), normally a private meeting ...

    Loving Life

    Rene Alvarez is having fun. Honest. Granted, it might not be obvious when you see the brooding songwriter playing at local clubs, banging out songs of intense frustration and instability with his group Sixo, creating a ragged kind of rock and roll no...

    The Odd Couple

    The collaborations between trumpeter Miles Davis -- one of the most restless (and brilliant) figures in the history of jazz -- and Gil Evans, a composer/arranger/pianist who was attracted equally to innovation and traditionalism, have spawned plenty ...

    Lots of well-produced, spiffily packaged CDs make up the bulk of this month's belated local-music roundup. Still, my favorite thing this time out is a low-fi, low-budget tape with a handmade cover. What does that mean? I don't know, but it sure makes...

    Key Player

    On his first album in more than 30 years, pianist Bebo Valdes pays musical tribute to two of his lost colleagues: one American, the other Cuban; both, like Valdes, were pioneers in merging Latin music with American jazz. The first track on Bebo Rides...

    A Monster Mishmash

    Every great holiday has a great anthem, and for better or worse Halloween has "Monster Mash," a catchy little novelty item that made Bobby "Boris" Pickett a one-hit wonder when it reached No. 1 in 1962. As novelties go, Pickett's hit ain't bad: In a ...
