Now What? [11]
If you go gaga over the sultry smoothness of a symphonic glissando, just wait till you experience our transitions to cool and useful music links on the Web.


T aking a break between tongue lashing and breathing fire, Gene Simmons of KISS talks about the band's farewell tour, musicianship, celebrity, drugs and alcohol, and much more.

Steve Barrow has been documenting and archiving Jamaican music for more than 20 years, as a journalist and as A&R director of Blood and Fire, a label known for its beautifully packaged and meticulously annotated reissues of classic and overlooked '70s reggae.

What's most impressive about Nashville's Off 12th -- an independently-owned record store of a size that barely accommodates one long rack of vinyl and several small crates of CDs -- is that the store knows what's worth carrying.

Also, chatting with Cat Power, off the record with Love Supreme, interviewing Ween, and more.
