The Night Jim Morrison and the Doors Saw ‘2001’ at the Cinerama Dome

AI Software Creates “New” Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, Doors & Amy Winehouse Songs: Hear Tracks from the “Lost Tapes of the 27 Club”

What would pop music sound like now if the musicians of the 27 club had lived into maturity? Can we know where Amy Winehouse would have gone, musically, if she had taken another path? What if Hendrix’s influence over guitar heroics (and less obvious styles) came not only from his sixties playing but from an unimaginable late-career cosmic blues? Whether questions like these can ever be given real flesh and blood, so to speak, by artificial intelligence may still be very much undecided. O...

Jeep goes after Escalade fans with $111,000 Grand Wagoneer

By Gabrielle Coppola | Bloomberg The Jeep brand, a pioneer of the modern sport-utility vehicle, has long missed out on one of its most lucrative segments. Not anymore. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, which merged with French rival PSA Group to become Stellantis NV in January, is debuting three large Jeep SUVs this year, crowned by the Grand Wagoneer, a land yacht that tops out at $111,000 when fully loaded. The Grand Wagoneer, and its more affordable sibling the Wagoneer, are a shot across the bow...

New Night Stalker serial killer documentary on Netflix refocuses story on the cops and survivors

Director Tiller Russell says there are times when he views all of the documentary, film and TV projects he makes as chapters in the same saga. “In some weird way or another, it’s all kind of the same movie,” says Russell, whose projects range from the 2019 docuseries “The Last Narc,” which explored the cartel murder of a DEA agent, to 2014’s “The Seven Five,” which took a deep dive into the corrupt past of a New York City police precinct. “I am, I guess, magnetized to these stories about the cri...

Brian Cullman, Veteran NY Music Scenester/Journalist/Producer, Shares His Tunes and Musings About Death: Nakedly Examined Music Podcast #137

Brian started as a teen music enthusiast and journalist as early as 1970, running into folks like Jim Morrison and Nico and making connections with every musician he could lay eyes on. He leveraged this effort into finding vehicles for his songs, first with OK Savant (ca. 1990), a band that frequented CBGBs and then broke up right as it was signed to a major label. After some false starts and life changes, he likewise used his network to support his creation of three and half solo albums starti...

2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392: Big Hemi Wrangler Reports for Off-Road Duty

Jeep fans have been clamoring for a V8-powered Wrangler for as long as I can remember. The last Jeep to have a factory V8 engine dates back well before my birthdate, so it’s easy to understand the hype behind the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. This vehicle marks the return of a production V8 engine in a Wrangler after nearly 40 years. For millennials and younger Gen Xers, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is the first-ever Wrangler with a standard V8 motor, and what an engine it is. Hemi V8 Rep...

Banff Virtual Film Festival: A Most Excellent Diversion and Fuel for Inspiration

How the Doors Got Banned from The Ed Sullivan Show (1967)

Getting banned from a venue can hurt a band’s career, but in most every case I’ve heard about, it’s a cloud with a golden lining. Hardcore band Bad Brains built a legacy on getting banned in all of D.C.’s clubs. Elvis Costello’s career didn’t seem to suffer much when he was banned from Saturday Night Live in 1977. Jimi Hendrix’s banning from the BBC didn’t hurt his image any. Then there’s the Doors…. The band earned the distinction of being the first to have a member arrested live onstag...

‘Sweet Dreams’ explores the New Romantic scene that launched Duran Duran, Culture Club and more

For Dylan Jones, the paradox of the New Romantic music scene is that this British blend of new sounds and styles became a worldwide phenomenon thanks in large part to American television. “The New Romantics were made by America because of MTV,” says Jones, author of the new oral history “Sweet Dreams: From Club Culture to Style Culture, the Story of the New Romantics.” For those too young to experience it, the scene was one that combined synthpop music with outrageous fashion and makeup. “Withou...

Hear Patti Smith’s First Poetry Reading, Accompanied by Her Longtime Guitarist Lenny Kaye (St. Mark’s Church, 1971)

There are so many origin stories of punk that no single history can count as definitive. But there’s also no disputing its roots in the New York poetry scene from which Patti Smith emerged in the 1960s and 70s. She learned from Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs, and Gregory Corso and Sam Shepherd inspired the poetry/rock hybrid that would become the music of Horses. Corso, who called himself a “punk debauche” in his 1960 poem “1959,” lived up to the label. He would heckle poets...

With movie theaters shuttered and large gatherings postponed across the globe, event organizers have been forced to get creative in order to keep on the calendar.

The social-distancing measures and travel ban have left them without visiting guests nor the use of theate...

How Patti Smith “Saved” Rock and Roll: A New Video Makes the Case

Rock and roll has always had its huge stars: from its earliest beginnings as a cultural phenomenon of interracial and sexual anxiety, to its turn as the soundtrack of free love, good drugs, and civil unrest. By the early 70s, however, Polyphonic argues above, the music of rebellion had “lost its way,” become the province of superrich superstars in private jets and French chateaus. As the 60s crashed and burned with the deaths of major figures like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morr...

Underrated arrondissements in Paris

Paris is made up of 20 distinct neighborhoods, or arrondissements, each with its own personality and charm. Many of the central arrondissements are famous among tourists for their monuments and museums but outside the highly trafficked, often touristy arrondissements there is a side of Paris that is completely underestimated. For those seeking a more local look at the French capital, these seven arrondissements are worth exploring. 10th Arrondissement Photo: Felix Lipov/Shutterstock The 1...

Counterbalance No. 3: Nirvana's 'Nevermind'

Klinger: So why is Nevermind number three on this scientifically-verified list of the Greatest Albums of All-Time? In the end, I think it comes down to three factors: 1. The cultural shift that the album represents, as detailed above. Sure, Nevermind made the world safe for countless wallet-chained flannel enthusiasts, but it also changed the culture. Not many albums can say that. 2. Critics do want to sound relevant, and Nirvana gave them an album that was the right mix of noise and hoo...
