    Stalemate - The Chess Records 50th anniversary reissues and the death of the blues

    Once, I was puttering through some mediocre bass guitar at a party with a drummer who at least claimed to have spent time with Jodie Foster's Army. It was a fun if uninspired racket, until we were joined by a genial, silvering boomer in a blazer and ...

    Racket

    The House of Tudor

    Kembra Pfahler was the product of a perfectly blond California union: Gidget-meets-surf-hero on white SoCal sand; the first kiss accompanied by innocuous Beach Boys riffs; the union blessed with an adorable, golden-faced child. For years, little Kemb...

    Racket

    Following the video-driven, stagy excesses of the '80s (as epitomized by David Lee Roth), something akin to a style recession changed the look of rock music. The alternative boom of the early '90s championed a near-Spartan aesthetic. Big hair and sta...
