A Cure for Loneliness CD review - A Cure for Loneliness
Peter Wolf is a bit of a changeling, or, better put, perhaps, a wolf in sheep's clothing. Where once he specialized in blues and bluster at the helm of the J Geils Band, his solo career's found him altering course, ploughing the fertile fields of Americana as a journeyman and troubadour, singing songs not about bitchy women and betrayed intents, but rather about hard luck happenstance in general, not the least of which is lost love.

Don Henley announced from the outset, though, how the group continues to tour primarily so it can keep the Eagles' many great songs alive.... »»»
Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night. Maybe it was because Paul Reiser, the "Mad About You" star, introduced Lovett with a funny bit about what some of the man's songs mean (or don't mean).... »»»
