  • Dionne Warwick knows her way to San Jose Aug 2, 2014 6:00 AM
    In 1968, Dionne Warwick had never been to San Jose and didn’t think much of the song. But after the iconic singer recorded “Do You Know The Way To San Jose?” and the song became a huge hit, the 73-year old singer says with a laugh that she “cried all the way to the bank.” This week, Warwick is heading back to San Jose to be dubbed the city’s “global ambassador of goodwill.” She’ll sing that song, as part of a Sister Cities International conference, on Friday.

  • Local Gemini Club brings mix of rock, electronica to Lolla stage Jul 30, 2014 11:23 AM
    Electronic music has been on the rise to the extent where it can almost challenge good, old-fashioned rock 'n' roll for ascendancy at Lollapalooza, the annual alternative rock festival that has made Chicago its home since 2005.

  • Muscle, menace from Drenge on debut album Jul 29, 2014 5:45 AM
    British rock duo Drenge’s self-titled debut is pretty much perfect. That’s not a word critics of any kind should throw around lightly, and it’s not done so here.

  • Tom Petty’s rock ’n’ roll triumph Jul 28, 2014 11:00 AM

  • Clapton says thank you to Cale with ‘The Breeze’ Jul 27, 2014 5:30 AM
    For Eric Clapton, the early 1970s were filled with drug addiction, personal difficulties and growing dissatisfaction with music. Singer-songwriter JJ Cale rescued him and gave him a direction, though the man known as the main architect of the highly influential Tulsa Sound didn’t know Clapton at the time. Cale died a year ago this week at 74. Cale’s music continues to inspire and push Clapton in powerful ways, something Clapton marks with the release this week of “The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale,” a 16-track thesis study in Cale’s career.
