    Na’an Stop returns to Boulder after nonstop tour

    By Quentin Young The guys in the band Na’an Stop live together. They create together. They tour together. And then they return from touring together and live together some more (one or two girlfriends live with them, too, it seems). They must really, really be friends. “We were friends first,” said Patrick Mulholland, who plays trombone and other instruments for the band. The five members met as students at the University of Colorado-Boulder. They’re not in school anymore. Now it’s […]

    By Randall Roberts Los Angeles Times (TNS) Few bands were better at distilling the vibe of Los Angeles in the 1970s than the Eagles, and as its singer and guitarist, Glenn Frey served as a sort of mellow ambassador of the city.

    Acclaimed rock photographer documents 35 years of ‘hippie chicks’ in music
