Rock Fable [11]
Meet the man who invented the obligatory concert call-out.
— Mitch Myers, NEWCITY CHICAGO
 


LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

O h my God, it's the Antichrist! No, it's Elvis! No, It's Marilyn Manson. Every generation must have its musical martyrs and Manson sure fits the bill. Read one mom's experience with her teenage son/Manson fan in "Why Be Afraid of Marilyn Manson."

We've all heard it, especially if you are a musician. One lone guy in the crowd yelling for the quintessential southern rock anthem. Newcity Chicago's Mitch Myers follows the history of the original heckler in "Rock Fable."

Artist profiles this week include swing legend Sam Butera, drum great Terry Bozzio, power poppers 20/20, no-sellouts The 5 Bucks, the Count Basie Orchestra, and DJ Spooky. Reviews include Bob Dylan's "Bob Dylan Live 1966," his live-on-tape struggle between the folk worlds and the power of electric rock; 20/20's "Interstate", a powerful collection of classic rock; as well as tons of quick clips in Mini Reviews.
