50 years on, the wild story of ‘Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine’ gets told

Rock journalist Jaan Uhelszki laughs as she describes a friend’s skepticism about life and work at Creem magazine during its glory days in the ’70s. “He keeps telling me, ‘All you Creem people romanticize it, you always make it seem like it was much better than it was,’” Uhelszki says. “I say, ‘No, it really was that good.’” With the release of the new documentary “Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine” on Friday, Aug. 7, Uhelszki — who co-wrote the film with director Scott Crawford and c...

8 best seafood restaurants in the San Fernando Valley for takeout, delivery

I was hoping, by this point, to be doing upbeat, optimistic columns about the joys of returning to dining out in Southern California. And, perhaps next week, I’ll be able to. At least in terms of the great new trend of outdoor dining streets, which are popping up all over town. But at the moment, I’m waiting to see if rather than opening up, we shut down again, with the return of a “safer at home” ruling — which means, of course, more weeks of takeout cuisine. Not that there’s anything wrong wit...

Fourth of July celebrations are canceled across LA County, but what about safe-and-sane fireworks?

Fourth of July is gonna be a little different this year — because of the coronavirus pandemic. With the number of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations rising, Los Angeles County this week banned all firework shows in an effort to prevent large gatherings, which could further spread the virus. While the lack of professional shows had been settled in many cities already — Long Beach’s fireworks display over the Queen Mary was canceled months ago, for example — the health order officials issued o...

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn delivers guidance when his team needed him most

Anthony Lynn didn’t ask to be the NFL’s unofficial spokesman for the state of diversity in the coaching ranks, but when you’re one of four minority head coaches out of 32, the questions automatically come. Lynn, the Chargers’ fourth-year coach and the organization’s first African American head coach, had a scheduled radio interview on the Zach Gelb Show last month. Before jumping on the call, Lynn noticed the NFL Network’s report on the league’s proposal of rewarding teams that hire minority hea...

How fast food history was made at these 12 Southern California sites

Southern California put the “fast” in “fast food.” Entrepreneurs like the McDonald brothers, Harry Snyder, and Glen Bell flipped their first burgers, steamed their first hot dog buns and stuffed their first tacos at walk-up stands throughout the region. Some of those places still exist in something like their original form. They give diners a chance to see, or even taste, what quick service was like decades ago. “We have the same recipe for the taco meat and the portions on the taco as we did in...
