    HellFest

    This column wasn't supposed to be an obituary, although it was meant to sound a knell of finality, if not death. This is my last column for New Times; I've decided to go back home to Memphis to work on a project that seems too good to pass up. After ...

    Sweet Dreams of Success

    The attack is a bit "sweeter" this time around for Matthew Sweet. Instead of the usual jabbing guitars flexing up the straight-forward pop, the singer-songwriter has decided to tone things down. "Up until recently Matthew gave guitar players all the ...

    It's Alright, Ma

    Bob Dylan didn't die. Apparently the state of his condition following his May 25 hospitalization for histoplasmosis was greatly exaggerated by the news media. ("DYLAN COULD BE IN FIGHT FOR LIFE," wailed the headline from the May 29 edition of the New...

    What's Soul Got to Do with It?

    Despite her success, Tina Turner has done her best to obscure the fact that she's a great singer. It doesn't help that she just launched her latest solo album, Wildest Dreams, and her first U.S. tour in six years at the same time one of her most ince...
