A sneak peek of the biopic about the former B-movie actor, who coined some of the most famous phrases at the Woodstock f...
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...

Bonnie Raitt is rejuvenated.
After a difficult 2005, in which her parents died and a brother battled a serious illness, Raitt is following the old show-business maxim “The show must go on,” and she has busied herself in the recording studio, on the road and with numerous environmental causes ...
In the black and white photo, Bonnie Raitt stands alone by a pond, her hands stuffed casually into the pockets of her trench coat.
She smiles slightly for the camera, her face framed by waves of long hair.
At the time, nothing in particular stood out in the Parisian scene, documented by Dick Waterman in the fall of 1970.
Yet, the photo offers a rare...

Crosby,Stills,Nash&Young return w a protest-heavy tour
By BEN WENER
Orange County Register
Let's not mince words.
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young have reunited for their third tour this decade, having ended a decade-plus period of dormancy in late 1999 with the sweet, aptly titled album "Looking Forward."
This time out, however, the quartet of 60-somethings has rallied around a decidedly strident work, Young's "Living With War," easily the most bluntly outspoken response to the president and the Iraq war yet recorded. Slammed out in a six-day rage, the disc's nine straightforward anthems (and choir rendition of "America the Beautiful") ...

Bonnie Raitt rallied against nuclear energy in the 1970s, she's recorded duets with Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker, and this week she'll play successive dates at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Indy Jazz Fest and jam-band festival Bonnaroo.
The 56-year-old singer-guitarist isn't sure her blues-folk style fits neatly at Telluride, Indy or Bonnaroo, but she's happy to play each of the shows.
"I'm glad that I'm eclectic enough to have been invited to all three," Raitt says.
Announcement from Bonnie Raitt, Graham Nash and Jackson Browne.
Our longtime friend, fellow No Nukes/MUSE artist, John Hall, whom you may also remember as a leader of Orleans (Dance With Me, Still the One) is running for Congress in the 19th District of upstate New York. John's been a lifelong activist and right out of the starting gate, is emerging as a very welcome and successful candidate in debates and testing so far. He's up against a very tough contender, the six-term incumbent Republican (and Tom DeLay crony) Rep. Sue Kelly, and of course needs to raise as much money ...

Catching Bonnie Raitt at the Arlington Theatre,as a full house did for a generous Valentine's Day concert of musical kindness, is bound to trigger nostalgia for some. Longtime locals will remember hearing her in this special venue, going back to the "prehistoric age" of the late 1970s, when she was a cult and critical favorite.
That was long before she became a "comeback" sensation and a representative voice for aging baby boomers with her late-blooming hit 1989 album "Nick of Time."
