Eager to limit the amount of CO2 coming out of tailpipes, the European Union has placed strict limits on petroleum-powered passenger vehicles. For Audi, the price of manufacturing a subcompact automobile-dependent upon internal combustion is getting too high.

‘Stillwater’ director Tom McCarthy talks Matt Damon and why this is not an Amanda Knox film

For years, Tom McCarthy wrote and directed independent, quirky, character-driven films, like “The Station Agent,” “The Visitor” and “Win Win.” Now, however, he’s an Oscar winner for “Spotlight”– he shared the Best Screenplay award and the film won Best Picture — and he’s directing Matt Damon in a movie, “Stillwater,” which is being marketed as a thriller with an American hero abroad at its heart. That raises certain expectations, but for much of the movie “Stillwater” is a smaller and quieter...

Heart’s Nancy Wilson recalls advising on ‘Almost Famous’ ‘golden god’ acid trip

Cameron Crowe already had nearly everything he needed when he set out to make his 2000 film “Almost Famous.” The movie about a 15-year-old journalist on the road for Rolling Stone magazine in the ’70s was based on the writer-director’s own life, after all. And what he didn’t have — the rock ‘n’ roll sound of the movie’s rock band Stillwater — he knew where to get. Who better than his then-wife Nancy Wilson, the guitarist and singer in the hard-rocking band Heart, which rose to real-life fame aro...

Why these two Southern California violinists spent the pandemic on the road in a VW bus

When live music was shut down during the coronavirus pandemic, violinists Etienne Gara and YuEun Kim decided to take an epic road trip in an old Volkswagen bus. And while the couple’s months-long journey helped them escape the monotony and isolation spurred by the pandemic, the road trip came with strings attached. “Musicians and artists are there also when things are not going well and we need to be there for the people,” said Gara, cruised up the coast with Kim for six months in a 1971 VW bus ...
