    Eagles’ Glenn Frey spun sun-baked SoCal ballads that will endure

    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. Just as Liverpool is forever associated with the Beatles, Seattle claims Nirvana and Bruce Springsteen owns New Jersey, the Eagles embodied the bell-bottomed, feather-haired flair of Southern California.

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

    By Quentin Young Jam band musicians enjoy an intensity of loyalty that’s unique among music genres. Many of their biggest fans follow them not just song to song on record but city to city on tour, and the associated subculture penetrates deeper into fans’ lives than it does with fans of punk, hip hop or indie music.

    Legendary musician David Bowie dies of cancer at 69

    By Mesfin Fekadu Associated Press NEW YORK — David Bowie, the other-worldly musician who broke pop and rock boundaries with his creative musicianship, nonconformity, striking visuals and a genre-spanning persona he christened Ziggy Stardust, died of cancer Sunday. He was 69 and had just released a new album. Bowie, whose hits included “Fame,” ”Heroes” and “Let’s Dance,” died “peacefully” and was surrounded by family, representative Steve Martin said early Monday. The singer had fought cancer for 18 months. Long before […]

    Coachella allowing girls to invade the boys club

    By Randall Roberts Los Angeles Times Given Coachella’s history, the news that its three 2016 headliners — Calvin Harris, Guns N’ Roses and LCD Soundsystem — consist of mostly male artists isn’t surprising. With apologies to LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang, that’s often the case in the American musical patriarchy.
