Lou Reed Concert Film Berlin Streaming Free Online for the Next Week

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SzuZfOZnp4 Last laughs can be sweet, and according to music journalist, Anthony DeCurtis, his friend, the late Lou Reed, “reveled” in the critical drubbing that greeted his 3rd solo album, 1973’s Berlin. Not immediately, however. Berlin, which followed hard on the heels of Reed’s widely adored Transformer, had a painful, protracted delivery. This was due in part due to RCA execs getting cold feet about releasing Reed’s grim concept record as a double albu...

Stream All of Tom Wait’s Music in a 24 Hour Playlist: From 1973’s Closing Time to 2011’s Bad as Me

Some singers are born with the voices of angels, some with voices like bags of gravel. Both, I’d say, are blessed in their own way. Take the haunting, unforgettable Blind Willie Johnson, the weirdo genius Captain Beefheart, and, of course, the inimitable Tom Waits, whose mercurial persona has expressed itself as a down-and-out lounge singer, junkshop bluesman, Tin Pan Alley raconteur, Broadway showman, and more. Each iteration seems to get grittier than the last as age weathers Waits’ sa...

The 13 Most Savage Reviews Of Crossroads

On February 15, 2002, Britney Spears made her film debut in the road trip dramedy Crossroads. The movie, which co-starred Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning, pulled in a respectable $61 million at the box office. Most of those seats were filled by Brit's tween and teen fans, of course, who were clamoring to see their favorite pop star in all of her cinematic glory. (And knew all the words to Britney singles "I'm a Slave 4 U," "Overprotected," and "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman," the later two of ...

Back In 1990, George Michael Already Saw A Glaring Problem With The Modern Media

In 1990, a few years removed from his Wham! years and into his solo career, George Michael agreed to a rare interview with The New York Times to help publicize his newest album, “Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. 1.” The conversation he had with critic Stephen Holden was wide-ranging. But, as writer Sarah Kendzior noted when she dug it up following the news of Michael’s death on Sunday, one particular point seems particularly prescient today.  While discussing “Praying for Time,” Michael’s first s...
