Dave Grohl’s Transformation From Gen X Icon to Guardian of Baby Boomer Rock: A Timeline

This week, the Foo Fighters release Sonic Highways, their eighth album, which doubles as a selective history lesson in their own particular brand of rock ‘n’ roll worship. It’s fitting, considering their leader Dave Grohl has become one of Baby Boomer guitar music’s most vigilant defenders (take our quiz on that very topic), in an era when breathless praise of Led Zeppelin seems about as original as yelling “Free Bird” at a rock show. … Read More

A Recent History of Stevie Nicks Oversharing

Stevie Nicks released a new album this week, 24 Karat Gold — Songs from the Vault. This means that she has been making the press rounds, giving TMI interview after TMI interview. Out of context, her salacious quotes about the past can seem a little disconcerting — if you don’t understand that this is just how Stevie Nicks is. She has often volunteered personal information with little prompting, both in interviews and in her brilliant songs about drugs, men, and living some Santa Monica take on the bohemian life. Let’s delve in to some recent revelations from rock’s wisest fairy… Read More

They’re not mutually exclusive activities — we actively encourage you to do both. But if you are in the market for new albums, there are a lot of great ones out this month.

Clean Person Jolie Kerr’s Cleaning Advice to Pop Culture Icons

For years, when I’ve found myself in sticky domestic situations — clogged toilets, red wine spills, and, well, red wine vomit — I’ve turned to my friend Jolie Kerr. She’s always given me the best advice on how to clean up after myself and feel like a real grownup — and done so without shaming me (I mean, who hasn’t thrown up red wine?). She began to put her handy advice to good use at The Hairpin, in her column “Ask a Clean Person,” which now runs on Jezebel and Deadspin under the moniker “Squalor.” Her columns have proved the need for a friendly, down-to-earth, judgement-free advice-giver, and today sees the publication of her ultimate cleaning manual: My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag… and Other Questions You Can’t Ask Martha. … Read More
