Friday, August 10th, 2012

by Dave Marsh and Danny Alexander You might wonder, for good reason, why we are writing about Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball five months after its release. Some of the reasons have been personal.

Music on Kick Out the Jams for July 31, 2011

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Something Unpredictable and From the Start, It’s Right

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Producer Vivek Tiwary invited me to American Idiot on Sunday night, composer Billie Joe Armstrong’s last performance as St. Jimmy. I’d seen the show opening night, when Green Day attended, but did not perform unless you count the last curtain call. I’ve been thinking ever since about the next time I’ll see the show, and […]
