On Friday Bob Dylan will celebrate his 72nd birthday, and to mark the occasion the Worcester Art Museum, whose current exhibition "Kennedy to Kent Sta...
Petty's voice has never been conventionally pretty, but it's well preserved, and he sounds great sneering over all those chiming Telecaster chords and squealing Les Paul riffs. He also looks better than ever, thanks to some bold but effective fashion choices (who woulda thunk a red tie, a black army jacket and brown velvet pants could jibe so well?) and a beard that nicely softens his beaky features.
Although I make my living as a film maker, I teach a class I developed about entrepreneurship called "Creativity: Making a Living With Your Ideas" at Parsons School for Design in New York City. I was recently interviewed about building and sustaining a creative career by Doug Smith.
From talking with soldiers, I know that combat can leave a mark upon the soul. They have lost more, given more, than most people could ever imagine. Telling that story to a songwriter, then writing a song about it, is a way of honoring that loss.
There are a million reasons why vinyl went out of style and most of them have to do with convenience, not just in how we listen to music, but in everything we do. I'm as spoiled by modernity as the next guy. But maybe not everything should be so convenient.

Your tastes, your habits, your wants and needs all personify your vehicle, or is it the other way around? We know who you are regardless, without even seeing that face behind the wheel.
I was thankful to witness this collective courage of a country to take a bold step from its past experiences. It filled me with a sense of hope that Africa's march to democracy has entered a new phase.
I can't even explain every reason I love music, but I know that I definitely have a strong love for music no matter what the reasons are.
Today I had the privilege to chat with singer-songwriter Tristan Prettyman about life, love, heartache, and what it feels like to be a woman in her early 30's.
From "Young at Heart" to "The Way You Look Tonight," "Love and Marriage" to "My Funny Valentine," there was a song for every mood, every time of day, every event. I, like a million girls before me and a million since, fell in love with Sinatra through his voice, and what a voice it is.
