    Green's Day - Al Green no longer separates church from state of mind.

    There's a good reason why Al Green, perhaps the greatest male soul singer still among the living, appears on so many late-night television shows but is seldom interviewed by the programs' hosts. While his performances are instantly accessible, his co...

    Rhymes Pays - It's not easy being as wild as Busta Rhymes.

    Swell La Donnas

    Simply the Quest - A Tribe Called Quest meets the press--in a manner of speaking.

    As an act becomes more successful, its relationship to music critics mutates in tangible ways. Take the frequency with which artists do interviews with the print media, for example. New performers trying to make a name for themselves will talk to any...

    Free Willie - A gospel album on a Denver record label is the latest step in the rehabilitation of Willie Nelson's career.

    Willie Nelson is right where you'd expect to find him: on a tour bus, heading from one show to the next. He's 63 years old and wears every one of his adventures on his leathery features. But he still has a guitar and a voice, and he fully intends to ...
