    The real Nick Cave? In '20,000 Days on Earth,' take your pick

    Q-and-A: Chris Isaak talks about music, movies and his spectacular suits

    T Bone Burnett's plea: The piper must be paid
    Music opened my life to an array of experiences. I remember New York's Washington Square Park in the 1960s as a laboratory alive with musicians playing folk, old-time country, jazz and everything in between. The creativity in that one small space was...
  • Ex-Monkees Michael Nesmith will show his country roots at Stagecoach

    Ex-Monkees Michael Nesmith will show his country roots at Stagecoach
    Michael Nesmith's name is far more often associated with the Monkees than the birth of Southern California country rock. Yet the former rock sitcom star played a key part in a 1960s scene when long hair and cowboy boots all a sudden made sense together....
  • Phoenix Project crafts high-end reproductions of iconic pieces of celebrity-wear

    Today it's rare to see a piece of celebrity-worn apparel — on screen or off — that can't be identified and even purchased with a few mouse clicks. From politician Sarah Palin's eyeglass frames (Kawasaki 704s) to film protagonist Jay Gatsby's...
