Rolling in the Deep: 1/16/15

1035x1408-R1227CoverStevieNicksI’ve been busy lately–busy enough that I haven’t been telling you what I’ve been working on. But if you’d like to catch up on my recent writing for Rolling Stone, then I have links galore. For the print magazine, I wrote about Bill Murray (!), interviewed the Duplass Brothers (again), met Meghan Trainor (print version not online, but this Q&A is) and profiled Selma director Ava DuVernay (with some additional conversation with her found here).

Online, I conducted Q&As with Colin Meloy of the Decemberists, Terry Crews, Michael Schur, and Tunde Adebimpe and Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio. I attended a screening of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, hosted by the RZA; the all-star “We Can Survive” benefit, featuring Taylor Swift; a live interview of Jimmy Page by Chris Cornell; a retro hipster boxing match; and the American Music Awards. I broke down some live clips of the Rolling Stones, the Foo Fighters, the Beastie Boys, and Motley Crue. I reviewed a couple of books: one by George Clinton, one about Prince. Also, I interviewed the surviving Doors and listed 20 album covers that notoriously got censored.

Did I mention I wrote about Bill Murray? More Bill Murray here. (Have you ever had an encounter with Bill Murray? The comments section beckons!)
