How The Wrecking Crew Secretly Recorded Some of the Biggest Hits of the 1960s & 70s

The top flight crew of L.A. studio musicians known as The Wrecking Crew acquired their name, legend has it, because they “were wrecking the business for everyone else,” writes Janet Maslin at The New York Times­, meaning older session players who couldn’t keep up. Drummers like Hal Blaine (“who justifiably calls himself ’10 of Your Favorite Drummers’ on his Web site”) and guitarists like Tommy Tedesco and Carol Kaye could play anything put in front of them perfectly, in one take, with th...

Watch Rare Footage of Jimi Hendrix Performing “Voodoo Child” in Maui, Plus a Trailer for a New Documentary on Jimi Hendrix’s Legendary Maui Performances (1970)

In June of 1969, the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, the band that introduced the sixties to its reigning guitar god, disbanded for good with the departure of Noel Redding following a messy Denver Pop Festival appearance. The story of that gig sounds so apocalyptic—involving heroin, riots, and tear gas—that it reads like cosmic foreshadowing of the tragedy to come: the decades' greatest psych-rockers go out in a haze of smoke. A little over one year later, Jimi is dead. But if he seeme...

How Inglewood’s D Smoke went from teaching school to winning a Netflix hip-hop competition

On the title track of rapper D Smoke’s album “Black Habits,” the Inglewood native runs through tales of success and struggle, dropping references to Black icons and issues in a narrative that feels both timely and timeless. The track’s sincerity is typical of the entire album D Smoke released earlier this year. The inaugural winner of Netflix’s reality rap competition “Rhythm & Flow,” the performer credits his upbringing in gospel music and the church, as well as 10 years as a high school teache...

Johnny Ramone’s widow Linda talks new line of Happy Socks and band’s punk rock legacy

Johnny Ramone, like all of the Ramones, shared an instantly recognizable sense of style: Black leather jacket, T-shirt, ripped jeans, sneakers. With that, you had a look as important to punk fashion as the Ramones’ ferocious music was to the punk rock sound. But Johnny did have a bit of flash and flair at times, his widow Linda Ramone says. “As the years went on, he incorporated different colored T-shirts,” she says from the backyard of the San Fernando Valley home she shared with Johnny from 19...

Nearly 98, this man shook President Truman’s hand, befriended Dr. Seuss and Stan Lee and hasn’t stopped dancing

Joe Siracusa is alive and well on the eve of his 98th birthday. That’s important to note, Siracusa says. Because when you get to be his age, and you’ve had fame enough to show up on celebrity birthday lists — as drummer in bandleader Spike Jones’ City Slickers, followed by a long career in Hollywood animation studios — he says people tend to worry when his name doesn’t appear in the newspaper on his Feb. 3 birthday. “One year it wasn’t there,” he says, sitting in his favorite chair at the Tarzan...
