Tweet Thanks to NME for reminding me that Nirvana recorded its MTV Unplugged special in New York on Nov. 18, 1993 — 21 years ago today. As I’ve said before, I was there, sitting next to Kate Moss in the front, due to my friend Frank, who was shooting the still photography for show. You […]

Tweet Recently, I messed up my iPod and ended up with all my music in the cloud instead of on the device. (I don’t listen to music on my phone because I need the phone battery to send 50 billion emails a day and to play the Kardashian Hollywood game. We all have our priorities.) […]

Tweet Earlier this year, my hair guru Keith Carpenter tried to persuade me to go back to the kind of pixie style he gave me in the 1990s. I was like, “NAHHHH,” because I love my mullet. I’ve done variations on mullet-y hairstyles — short on top, long in the back — for years. This […]

Tweet I owe a big, belated thank you to my California-based Twitter friend John Laurente.  Early last month, he asked me if I wanted his tickets to a September 27 Jay Z concert in New York that he wouldn’t be able to attend. I’d already seen Jay Z twice, but I was up for a […]

Tweet While writing yesterday’s post about Fleetwood Mac, I delved into the band’s past, so I’ve got lots of recommended reading for you. Start with the band’s March 1977 Rolling Stone cover story. The band members were interviewed separately for the story by the then-19-year-old Cameron Crowe — the same Cameron Crowe who would eventually […]

Tweet I’ve had this photo of Stevie Nicks saved to my computer desktop for about a year, just because it’s gorgeous. I’ve always loved Stevie’s voice, music and style. I glued myself to the TV when Fleetwood Mac’s “Gypsy” came on MTV in the early 1980s — taking occasional breaks to spin around the living […]

Tweet Gorgeous Sky Heavens has sung backup vocals for Eminem and Nicki Minaj, but I had never seen one of her solo performances until last night. She did an acoustic set of songs from her upcoming EP, Luz, at the Standard Hotel in New York City. She also treated us to a little bit of […]

Tweet In honor of tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, the always-highlarious Michael K of the blog Dlisted shared a classic clip from the 1995 VMAs, when Courtney Love threw a MAC compact at Madonna before crashing the latter’s pre-show interview with Kurt Loder. “Courtney Love is in dire need of attention right now,” Madonna observed.
