"The Strange Story of Bob Dylan’s Triumphant First Letterman Performance"

Featuring a brief discussion of Dylan's affection for punk and a ringing, rocking performance of "Jokerman". (What the lyrics might mean.)

More good Letterman: "David Letterman retires: His most notable interviews". This is a fine selection including two at the peak of his form, with Cher and Madonna. (How Madonna thought she would be able to mess with Dave, especially in his building with his people, is beyond my meager power to understand.)

"B.B. King’s Greatest Performance"

"The three-song medley at the heart of his masterpiece may be the best 12 minutes of live musical performance ever recorded."

That's a tough statement to agree with given James Brown, Springsteen, Van Morrison, and many others.

But the crowd is really into it.

"Rocker Dave Navarro, 47, is dating Fox News anchor Andrea Tantaros, 36 ...after meeting through mutual friends"

I liked this bit:

Dave Navarro has a new love in his life.

The 47-year-old Jane's Addiction guitarist is dating Fox News anchor, Andrea Tantaros, 36, reports Us Weekly.

'Even though they seem like opposites, they have a lot in common,' an insider told the publication.

'They both have a wicked sense of humor and share a love of politics and dark eyeliner.'

"Enter Sandman" covered by three sisters

One is 9, one is 14, and the other one is in between her sisters. 

Not my favorite song, but the performance is not bad.

"HTML Drum Machine"

Five kits, tempo from 20 to 236, and can save as a .wav. Pretty cute.

Another one.

An "acid machine".

"Herb Alpert’s ‘Whipped Cream Lady’ now 7[9], living in Longview and looking back"

She doesn't look quite the same, of course, but she has her health and is happy to have had her moment in the sun.

"How a genre of music affects life expectancy of famous musicians in that genre"

Tyler advises readers to "[b]eware selection". He's got that right, but it's still interesting.

"Just how good is Eric Clapton?"

Short answer: pretty darn good.
