Father John Misty Takes Listeners on a Folksy Trip

Written by
To call Joshua Tillman’s career unusual is something of an understatement. A former drummer for Fleet Foxes and an accomplished solo musician, he left that group, loaded his van with mushrooms and took a trip down the California coast, a hazy exodus that resulted in the birth of his current…

Does King Tuff Have the Right Stuff?

Written by
I was very disappointed to not have seen King Tuff perform onstage in the buff. I really wanted to see hottie King Tuff up there, butt naked, while singing the lyrics "My ding-a-ling...I want you to play with my ding-a-ling! So the question arises as to whether King Tuff and his band's…

Who would have ever guessed back in the hairband heyday of the mid-to-late ‘80s that we would still be talking about Poison frontman Bret Michaels in 2012? Though he has been responsible for his share of mindlessly fun party rock (“Unskinny Bop,” “Nothin’ But A Good Time”) and the won’t-die-even-if-you-want-it-to…
