    It's the music that moves 'Inside Llewyn Davis'
    One of the most beguiling folk records of the year has the bonus of ferrying along a Joel and Ethan Coen plot line. The songs within the brothers' new "Inside Llewyn Davis" move from balladry to blues to ancient British folk, adding an extra layer of...
  • Sundance Film Review: 'Lambert & Stamp'

    Named for the cinephilic pair of Swinging Londoners who figured that managing the Who would be a good way to get a movie made, "Lambert & Stamp" belatedly realizes their 50-year-old dream. Impeccably directed by first-time documentarian James D. Cooper,...

    The Long-Forgotten Proto-Punk Band Death Gets Rediscovered and Rejuvenated

    Review: One Direction brings the party to Staples Center
    When Niall Horan of One Direction revealed Wednesday night that he’d “[come] here to party,” it seemed reasonable at that point in the show to assume that “here” meant Staples Center. That’s where the British boy band...

    Does One Direction's 'Best Song Ever' copy Who's 'Baba O'Riley'?
    Twitter is blowing up today over One Direction’s hit “Best Song Ever,” with hundreds of fans posting messages to the hashtag #donttouchbestsongever -- and that’s just in the last 10 minutes. The tweets are flooding in since a...
  • Greg Schwem: The Wife: A true musical oddity

    I heard the lyrics as I prepared steaks on the grill one warm Saturday evening. They were coming from the Adult Alternative music channel that I'm forced to pay for each month as part of my cable package. For the record, I'm also paying for Metal,...
  • Managers, Moolah and the Birth of the Modern Rock Star

    I've about given up reading rock 'n' roll books. Always poorly written, they never tell you what you want to hear and they leave out the essence, the myth and how it came to be. Many younger people believe the concept of rock star was born with MTV....
  • Alice Cooper's identity crisis

    Alice Cooper's identity crisis
    In September, Alice Cooper recorded vocals for a new covers album that will pay tribute to his old drinking buddies, the so-called Hollywood Vampires. The honorary members of his underground booze club: Keith Moon, Mickey Dolenz, John Lennon, Jimi...
  • Film Review: '12-12-12'

    Great chefs can take leftovers and dress them up with enough flourishes and new flavors to make entirely palatable new dishes, but even then, one never forgets that they're still leftovers. Directors Amir Bar-Lev and Charlie Lightening prove to be...

    Review: Nine Inch Nails brings 'Hesitation Marks' to Staples Center
    A great rock band requires a source of tension. It can be almost anything: the relationship between melody and noise in Nirvana, for instance, or the competing interests of creative co-captains like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in the Rolling Stones....
  • AFM: Keith Moon Biopic Picking Up Rythym Via Financing Deal

    A biopic on Keith Moon, iconic drummer for The Who, has received a boost via a development-financing deal between Exclusive Media and Da Vinci Media Ventures, led by Toby Moores and Wendy Rutland. The Moon project is the first film to be developed...
  • Rock 'n' roll style school

    Rock 'n' roll style school
    The family car bore no "Proud parent of an Alice Cooper fan" bumper sticker as John Varvatos blared Cooper's shock rock from his suburban Detroit bedroom in the early '70s. But behind that door, Varvatos' teenage obsession with rock 'n' roll was setting...
