The Velvet Underground: "one of the most unique bands of the 1960s." Syd Barrett: "one of the most unique talents to surface from the 1960s underground music scene." Kate Bush: "one of the most unique artists in British musical history." Queen: "perhaps the most unique band in the history of rock music." Such is the slant of your opening line of narration

"Four Dead in O-HI-O." "Look at Mother Nature on the run in the 1970s." "We got a kinder, gentler machine-gun hand." "Time is runnin' out, let's roll." "I'm living with war every day." Neil Young has never been one to pull punches either socially or politically.

Don't know why anyone should be surprised that Norah Jones is loosening her shirt more and more these days. After all, growing up, the ingénue liked Mötley Crüe! "My neighbor and I would go listen to Mötley Crüe all the time," she says of the boys at right. And in her concerts, she's been known to do a gritty cover of "Ride On" by the boys Down Under, AC/DC.
