NEW ORLEANS - Fats Domino took the stage before a sold-out crowd of hundreds in a New Orleans nightclub Saturday, marking the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer‘s first public performance since Hurricane Katrina.

Do you live near a nuclear power plant?
You may not today, but if the nuclear power industry has their way, a lot more of us could have those radioactive smokestacks as neighbors.
Nuclear power makes global warming worse. It is not a clean solution to the climate crisis, but instead diverts scarce resources from the green techologies that really work: renewables, conservation, and efficiency tech...

THE ROLLING STONES
BONNIE RAITT Where: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles
When: Wednesday, Nov. 22
By George A. Paul, Staff Writer
Each time The Rolling Stones mount a new tour, the same question arises: will this REALLY be the last time?
Rock music is supposed to be a young man s game after all. And since the three founding members are all older than 60, conventional wisdom would lead us to believe the British legends might hang up their concert hats soon.
But when you can still deliver the goods like The Stones did before an estimated crowd...
Ruth Brown, the bold and bodacious singer that San Diego's Frankie Laine once dubbed Miss Rhythm," has passed away in a Las Vegas area hospital from complications following a stroke and heart attack at age 78, her longtime friend and lawyer Howell Begle, announced today.
Brown reigned as queen of rhythm and blues through the 1950's. She was among the first bona fide stars on the fledgling Atlantic Records label, often referred to as "The House That Ruth Built."

Bruce Elder, reviewer
In recent years the blues has become a popular minority music suited to rural festivals and pubs.
Within the genre's 12-bar simplicity are endless opportunities for improvisation and variation so that every country can discover its own style of blues. Who, for example, would deny Jeff Lang, the Backsliders, Big Wheel or Ash Grunwald their right to be exponents of distinctively Aussie blues?
Here is a collection of 11 tracks, each revealing exotic localised variants of t...
