    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 ...

    Life on the road can be fun for a traveling rock-and-roller--but according to Ned "Hoaky" Hickel, bassist for New Orleans-based Dash Rip Rock, it's not without its drawbacks. "With all this traveling we've been doing," he laments, "there's no time fo...

    Good Vibrations - The long, hard road traveled by the members of Israel Vibration.

    It's not uncommon to hear stories of a reggae star's rise from the ghettos of Jamaica to international fame. But few performers have endured as much or struggled as hard as the harmony trio Israel Vibration, whose members are all survivors of polio. ...

    Golden Smog began its life as what singer-guitarist Dan Murphy describes as "the cover band from hell. We'd learn, like, twenty or thirty covers in two days. And we'd just barely learn them. We'd play requests, too--like 'Freebird.' There'd always be...
