The blaze had threatened homes on the Ventura County side of the fire, authorities said. Yet despite the hot, dry weather and the difficulty of maneuvering through ru...

‘The Office’ star Creed Bratton talks Grass Roots rock fame, ‘Slightly Altered’ new album

A three-legged feng shui toad inspired the first single off Creed Bratton’s new album “Slightly Altered,” but that’s definitely not the only time good fortune has smiled on the singer-songwriter and actor. As lead guitarist for the Grass Roots in the late ’60s, Bratton was part of the psychedelic pop/rock band’s peak period when singles such as “Midnight Confessions” and “Let’s Live For Today” cracked the Top 10. As a character actor, decades of scuffling around Hollywood ended in 2005 when Brat...

Louise Goffin talks famous parents and finding her own place in the music world

The daughter of legendary songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin, Louise Goffin spent her childhood and adolescence in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of the L.A. music scene in the late ’60s and ’70s. Her live debut came when she was 17, opening up for Jackson Browne in 1977 at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. Her first album “Kid Blue” arrived on the major label Elektra/Asylum in 1979 before she’d even turned 20. Yet while those early memories used to remind Goffin more of struggle and difficu...
