COVER STORY: Joe Strummer
As the world mourned Joe Strummer's death late last year, his family
and band-mates set about completing what would be the final document
of a seminal career.
35 years ago a little-known musician with a revolutionary
vision hijacked one of the world's biggest rock bands, guiding the
birth of a masterpiece and nearly ending their career. The story
of Gram Parsons and the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo.
Regardless of what transpires on the
charts, roots music's renaissance man
will remain committed to making all
kinds of music, with new and old friends.
Dusty pop charts led him to groovy rhythms and a freshly sunny sound.
Meet the new Josh Rouse, rocking out for fun and profit.
The prodigiously gifted son of Loudon
Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle
shares with his parents an unflinching
forthrightness, but also has a penchant
for Tin Pan Alley classicism and Baroque
