Suddenly, it seems that Playing for Change was ahead of the curve, because this is the way the entire world is living right now. People are making art in quarantine, joining together ...

The Go-Gos’ Kathy Valentine shares her wild life in ‘All I Ever Wanted’

For Kathy Valentine, the fairy tale began on Christmas 1980. Restless that night, the 21-year-old guitarist headed down from the home in the Hollywood Hills, where she’d been staying with a friend since moving to Los Angeles from Austin, to catch a gig by rising L.A. punk act X at the Whisky A Go Go. There, a chance encounter in the bathroom with Go-Go‘s guitarist Charlotte Caffey led to an offer to fill in on bass with the then-unsigned band for a run of eight shows over four nights at the West...

Robbie Robertson’s “The Weight,” the Band’s most beloved song, has the quality of Dylan’s impressionistic narratives. Elliptical vignettes that seem to make very little sense at first listen, with a chorus that cuts right to the heart of the human predicament. “Robertson admits in his autobiography,” notes Patrick Doyle at Rolling Stone, “that he struggled to articulate to producer John Simon what the song was even about.” An artist needn’t understand a creation for it to resonate with l...

‘The Voice’ found this Orange County singer after he’d spent years of paying his dues

Nine words and 17 seconds. That’s all Roderick Chambers had to sing of the Brian McKnight song he’d chosen for his blind audition on “The Voice” to convince judge Nick Jonas to hit his button, spin his chair, and change Chambers’ life forever. Now picture what that was like for Chambers: You just got something you’d dreamed about for years, but there’s still more than a minute of the song to sing, and millions of viewers are watching.
