    "It's strange, you know," former Yes drummer Bill Bruford once told me. "Songs like 'Siberian Khatru' sound really hip these days." Bruford was right. The six studio albums that British quintet Yes released between 1971 and 1977 have aged well, standing today as a paradigm of progressive rock and its infinite ambition: the desire to stretch the concept of rock & roll to the limit, incorporating elements of jazz, classical music, sweet psychedelia, noisy dissonance and East...  | More »

  • Pink Dazzles at the Staples Center

    Pink isn’t easily contained on a normal concert stage, regardless of its size. She hungers to be airborne, kicking and bouncing and twisting high into the air on bungee cord and cable, or tossed and spun from one dance partner to another, as she was last night at Staples Center in Los Angeles. On the third stop of her 2013 tour, she flew as much as anyone from The Avengers. The singer’s two-hour performance was as dazzlingly physical as it was musical, beginning with the danceabl...  | More »

    Justin Timberlake took inspiration from his new single, "Suit and Tie," when he performed his first show in almost five years Saturday night. He took the stage on Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans "all dressed up in black and white," as the song says, down to his two-tone shoes. Backed by the Tennessee Men, a similarly dapper 15-piece band, Timberlake adopted a classic style down to the bowtie, cufflinks and part on the side of his slicked-back hair. He presided over the AXS TV/DirecTV Super ...  | More »
