It’s no secret that men like Keith Richards, John Lennon and Frank Sinatra are the first to be mentioned when talking about the evolution of music. But what about women like Joan Jett and Tina Turner, who are equally responsible for putting rock and roll on the map?
Perhaps no vocal group in America – other than the Beach Boys – have been as celebrated as The Manhattan Transfer.

At 72 years young, Dan Hicks remains the eternal hipster. Hicks first entered the music scene in the sixties with his seminal group, The Charlatans, and he remains an influential figure among musicians.

Pearl Jam has been quiet since wrapping up its "Backspacer" tour in 2010. But the grunge band, which rose through the Seattle scene and turned into a juggernaut courtesy of its pure arena-rock ambitions, began touring Oct. 11 in support of its latest album, "Lightning Bolt."
Not all costumes are created equal, and there aren’t many as elaborate or amazing as those on display in “The Lion King,” on stage at ASU Gammage through Nov. 17. The magnificent costumes depict a variety of life in the African jungle — the sleek leopard, the leaping antelope, the lumbering elephant and the roaring lion — and each one is more fantastic than the last, especially when they parade down the aisles in the opening sequence of “The Circle of Life.”
Novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald once famously declared “there are no second acts in American lives.” But the writer didn't live long enough to see The Rascals prove him wrong.
NINE MILE, Jamaica — Napa and Sonoma have their wine tours, and travelers flock to Scotland to sample the fine single malt whiskies. But in Jamaica, farmers are offering a different kind of trip for a different type of connoisseur.

While marijuana is still illegal in Jamaica, where it is known popularly as “ganja,” increasingly vocal advocates say that Jamaica could give its struggling economy a boost by taking advantage of the fact the island is nearly as famous for its marijuana as it is for beaches, reggae music and world-beating sprinters.

You’re 15 minutes late to the scheduled interview, stalled by a traffic slog, a lack of direction and a persistent absence of time. Fortunately, the man you’re supposed to meet with, owner Don Salter of Mesa’s The Saltmine Studio Oasis, doesn’t notice the absence and forgets about your interview — you later discover all tall, lean men apparently look alike. So you wait for an extra half hour as he completes the vocal discussion in his office and sets up Studio A for an older couple who appear as if they stepped right off the farm with a young man clad in black.
The 1980s had New Kids on the Block; the '90s had the Backstreet Boys; and now boy bands are resurgent again with British group-of-the-moment One Direction, currently a chart-topping global pop phenom. While hardly a very incisive look at the band or its five individual singers — who are barely old enough to even have personal histories — Morgan Spurlock's documentary "One Direction: This Is Us" should score big with kids.

They perform in support of their new EP, “I Haven’t Been Completely Honest.”
Boz Scaggs knows he has a reputation for being something of a perfectionist. The casually stylish singer-songwriter recalls the endless tinkering and expansive budgets that went into making his multiplatinum 1970s albums “Silk Degrees” and “Down Two Then Left.”
Hard rocker Tom Keifer would be among the first to say that life doesn’t go as planned.
