Deep in the Heart of Doritos

My history of Doritos was a story a year in the making; it required a trip to Texas to see the flagship Frito-Lay plant and some detective work to track down the snack’s then-96-year-old inventor, Arch West (who has since died, alas).

Got to Run to Keep from Hiding

I recently interviewed Gregg Allman for the second time; the first time was back in 1999, when I trailed him around the United States and wrote an epic history of the Allman Brothers Band.

Hey Diddle Diddle With the Kitty in the Middle

Shotguns, bologna sandwiches, and rehab: that’s the summary version of my recent interview with Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith. If you want the details, you can pick up the new issue of Maxim (it’s my first piece for them; Joanna Krupa is on the cover), or just read it on their website here. It […]
