Rolling Stone at 50: How Tom Wolfe Helped Create New Journalism
News

In the mid-1960s, the acid tests thrown by Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters were the white-hot center of the psychedelic revolution: dusk-to-dawn parties, usually in the Bay Area, that brought together freaks and Hells Angels, offered free LSD in plastic tubs and sometimes featured live accompaniment by the Grateful Dead. One night in 1966, Kesey and his followers found an unlikely figure in their midst: a genteel, Virginia-born former newspaper reporter in a three-piece suit. The book that Tom...

Review: Chuck Berry’s ‘Chuck,’ His First LP Since 1979, Is As Classic As Always
News

It took 38 years and sounds like it could have been knocked off last Sunday in the time it takes Dominos to deliver. Good, bad and otherwise, Chuck Berry’s first album since 1979 is a classic as he always made them, with knockoffs of his own inventions (“Wonderful Woman” updates “Little Queenie” for his long suffering wife of 68 years, Themetta, with guest riffs from Gary Clark Jr.; “Big Boys” retrofits “Roll Over Beethoven” with Tom Morello adding some motorvation),...

Singer Caleb Followill filled the space with his signature rugged, resonant cry about seductive power of radio reverends. Matthew Followill played propulsive, spindly lines and drummer Nathan Followill punctuated the choruses with sharp cymbal-crashes. ...

News

Rae Sremmurd celebrated Swae Lee’s birthday with a performance of their new SremmLife 2 track “Swang” on The Tonight Show Wednesday. Swae and his co-emcee Slim Jxmmi took the stage with the Roots, who provided the song’s bass-heavy beat and syrupy synths. Swae Lee commandeered the cut, jumping easily between spitting bars to crooning the end of the defiant hook in his surprisingly delicate falsetto: “Hop out, drop, top, got y’all talkin’ I need it right now/ Cash in the air,...
