Seventy-nine-year-old Michigan woman Evie Branan woke up from a five-year coma this month and had a single wish: to see a Bob Seger concert. She had remarkable timing. Seger is on a relatively rare tour, and it hit Michigan's Palace of Auburn Hills this week. Branan got to live her dream, and she even went backstage to meet Seger. It was the feel-good rock story of the year.

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
