  • Lifelong service to pro football should land Modell spot in Hall

    NEW ORLEANS -- If Ravens owner Art Modell is not selected for Hall of Fame induction on Saturday, it would be an affront to the man, the game and the NFL. He deserves to be enshrined as much as any player or other administrator/owner, including Tex...

    Gary U.S. Bonds and friends celebrate the musical roots of Church Street.
     Gary U.S. Bonds is the host with the most.  At 75, the great rock and roll singer from Norfolk can still belt out a tune. But if you want to see Bonds completely in his element, give him a stage and a microphone and a party to host.  That's what he...

    ZZ Top, Jeff Beck make hoax 'Sixteen Tons' performance a reality

    After 40 years, KISS still aims high

    ZZ Top, the classic 1970s and '80s boogie-rocking band that was to headline Musikfest's opening night on Sands Steel Stage in 10 days, has canceled. Musikfest does not plan to schedule a replacement act, leaving the festival without an opening night...
  • Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer teaches ill boy to keep the beat

    When Sarah Newhard of New Tripoli asked her 9-year-old son Wyatt what he wanted for Christmas, she was surprised to hear him say a drum set. He had never been musical or particularly liked music, Newhard says. But Wyatt, who since age 3 has battled stage...
  • Heart not looking back in anger

    Heart not looking back in anger
    The band that performs "Crazy On You" every time you hear it on the radio no longer exists. That was an early version of Heart, the Seattle rock band fronted by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, including lead guitarist Roger Fisher and bassist Steve Fossen....
  • Uncovering the mysteries of Steely Dan

    Although they are on tour together as Steely Dan at the moment, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker have little reason to interact with the media. The current theater shows are easy to sell out, the last album they had to promote was more than a decade ago,...
