B.B. King Plays “The Thrill is Gone” with Slash, Ron Wood & Other Legends

How many generations of guitarists have come and gone since B.B. King emerged on the Beale Street blues scene in the late 1940s? 60s blues-rock giants, 70s hard rockers, 80s metal shredders… at least two generations between B.B. and Slash, who is probably himself a guitar grandfather by now. Whether they know it or not, every rock and blues player descends from the Kings of the blues (B.B., Albert, Freddie, and guitarists who bore the title but not the surname). Slash knows it well. ...

The many voices of Paul McCartney.

And has our experience of it changed over the years as present-day music is electronically tuned to perfection?And is it the case that there is a son...

12 places to see classic Southern California roadside architecture

Buildings shaped like unusual objects are part of the Southern California experience. What could be more L.A. than eating a doughnut underneath the giant replica of one at Randy’s Donuts. That kind of building is called programmatic architecture, although it has other names. Some people call it novelty architecture. And some people call it weird.
