"As big as rap is with the R&B community, that's how blues was back in the day. It was the hot thing. We're talking about a genre that is a hundred years old and is still relevant today."

Nelson Mandela, whose July 18th birthday is known and celebrated worldwide as Mandela Day, is hugely influential and inspirational to musicians, who've found it easy to wrap poetry and melodies around the leader's tragic and triumphant life since.

First Kisses of Rock + Lit

Radio Silence is full of great writers chronicling musically-induced epiphanies and musicians recounting ecstasies bred by verse and prose. Fans of both will feel giddy at this blurring of the lines between artist and audience.

Downton Jimmy

Just like the original PBS series of a similar name, the attention to detail is exquisite. With Brooke Shields cast as the lovely wife and SNL's Fred Armisen as the homely daughter, they have made an absolutely perfect mockery of the esteemed drama.

Steve Heilig

This is something of a belated "best of year" list, although there are some older titles I only got to last year included. An eclectic list, modestly offered -- a bit heavy on books on music, but many others, and perhaps something will strike the interest of other readers.

Dan Mirvish

One Oscar Les Miserables won't be nominated for is "Best Original Musical." Wait a minute, you're thinking, that's crazy talk -- there's no category called "Best Original Musical." As a matter of fact, there is such a category, but it's just never been activated.

Steven Rosen

At age 62, responding to music is still the way I process the world, the place I feel most in my element. Evidently it's the same for these musicians, and together we're all aging if not always gracefully than certainly gratefully.

Wasn't easy to whittle this list down to 10, let alone 11, so I picked 12 for 12-12-12. A few of these selections were last minute additions that knocked two other picks out of top spots.

Elliott Negin

Don't let it bring you down, Mr. Young. Indulge me a bit. Let me explain just what these new standards will accomplish and how some complementary policies -- including cutting U.S. oil use in half -- would help us, as you termed it, "get real on carbon."

I was a bit skeptical about this year's show, especially because last year's set the bar pretty high. My skepticism turned out to be somewhat justified.

"We were part of the anger of the culture. ... When you look at the Occupy movement and a lot of the anger that's out there now, I think our music still holds. I wouldn't doubt if you found some of them listening to our old LPs." -- John Lydon
