Source: Splice Today

A lot of music writers from rock’s first generation are capable of lauding the stars of their youth and rehashing old quarrels, but famous journalist Lisa Robinson shows no interest in transcending these stereotypes.

During that year, he meets Linda Keith (Imogen Poots), who dates Keith Richards an ...

Source: A Deeper Shade of Soul

Compiling this year’s Top 40 was much harder for me than last year. Is that due to a lack of worthy material? I tend to doubt it – but it sure felt like it.
