Rolling in the Deep, 5/14/14

Would you like to catch up on some of my recent Rolling Stone bylines? Of course you would! I had an article in the print edition of the magazine (the Julia Louis-Dreyfus issue) on the all-star sessions recording recently unearthed Dylan lyrics from the Basement Tapes sessions (which was crazy fun to report, hanging out […]

Rolling in the Deep, 3/18/14

I just returned from SXSW, which grows more excessive every year, but still has the cool vibes that come from indie music and BBQ. While in Austin, Texas, I interviewed Neil Young, went to the Lady Gaga show, and contributed to the Rolling Stone roundup of the festival’s best moments. I also had the sobering […]

Rolling in the Deep, 2/26/14

Life as a content provider: I have been busy the past two weeks providing content, including a bunch of pieces for the Rolling Stone website. You might enjoy my interview with David Lynch (in which he reveals his love of ZZ Top), my report on the excellent live reading of Pulp Fiction at LACMA, my […]

Rolling in the Deep, 1/14/14

Hello and happy new year, citizens of the world. I am currently finishing up a big project (more details to come very soon), so there won’t be a lot of activity around here for another two weeks or so. (But after that, Rule Forty Two bonanza!) You may, however, be interested in some of my […]

Merry Christmas, Baby

You may have missed this one: I recently compiled forty of the greatest Christmas albums of all time for the Rolling Stone website. I wanted to include albums that rewarded repeated plays, not wacky Yuletide novelties–which means that I didn’t include Bob Dylan’s Christmas in the Heart, even though I really wanted to use my […]

Rolling in the Deep, 11/19/13

Perhaps you’d like to know what I’ve been writing lately? I can’t share all of it with you, but I can tell you what’s appeared on the Rolling Stone website in the past week: More Naya Rivera (basically, all the good stuff from our conversation that didn’t fit into my flip-cover RS profile of her). […]

Rolling in the Deep, 11/11/13

Another week goes by, which means I have more articles in Rolling Stone, both the print magazine and this new-fangled website thingy. By far my most-viewed item this past week was a short take on the PBS documentary about Jimi Hendrix. But I also interviewed Jill Cunniff of the groovy Luscious Jackson (back with their […]

Rolling in the Deep, 11/5/13

You might be interested in a couple of pieces I wrote that appeared on the Rolling Stone website last week. I have a short interview with National guitarist Bryce Dessner, centered on his collaboration with the Kronos Quartet (the album Aheym, which I quite like). And, pegged to Halloween, I did a roundup (I’m trying […]

Rolling in the Deep, 10/27/13

I had several pieces on the Rolling Stone website in the past week. First and foremost was a list I assembled of twenty Lou Reed tracks, in memory of his passing. I tried to strike a balance between the most iconic moments in his career and great stuff on YouTube that people might have forgotten […]

Rolling in the Deep, 10/21/13

I did another list for the Rolling Stone website last week, on the twelve most Canadian things about Neil Young (who was born north of the border but has lived in the States for many decades now). Some Canadians have taken exception to the list, and as far as I can tell they have two […]
