war stories

“We’re not a band anymore. Even when we were, I used to sit there thinking, ‘This is a fucking waste of time.’”—PETE TOWNSHEND, ON THE WHO “‘STAR WARS’ is about 25 percent of what I wanted it to be,” George Lucas told ROLLING STONE’s Paul Scanlon in a cover story in the summer of 1977. “The sequels will be much, much better.” Eight films later, the Skywalker saga is wrapping up with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and this issue covers it from all angles: Adam Driver discusses how a freak Marine Corps accident led to his acting career; director J.J. Abrams explains why he put a female character, Rey, at the center of the films; and we sit down for afternoon cocktails with Billy Dee Williams, who is returning…

when musicians ask the questions

“This is the best duo I could imagine. My first concert was Elton John, and Lana Del Rey has helped me feel not alone on issues in my life.”—Cosmin B., via Facebook FOR OUR NOVEMBER ISSUE [“Musicians on Musicians,” RS 1333], we invited some of our favorite artists to sit down with a musical hero. Lana Del Rey prepared 13 pages of questions for her visit with Elton John, resulting in a conversation that ranged from Seventies L.A. rock to the value of having mystique. Ringo Starr and Dave Grohl (below) bonded over how they still cope with the losses of John Lennon and Kurt Cobain; Brandi Carlile got her hero Bonnie Raitt to open up about how she faced the challenge of being a woman in a studio full of…

david byrne wants you to dance

ON A CHILLY October night, in the middle of David Byrne’s stunning Broadway debut, American Utopia, the former Talking Head tells the audience to get up and dance. He’s already played exuberant versions of “Once in a Lifetime” and “Born Under Punches,” but the crowd is seated. People seem to be under the misimpression that this is like any other production. “People don’t know if they’re allowed to dance or if the ushers are going to come down on them with flashlights,” Byrne says a few days later. “When I tell them they can, it’s like I popped the top off the bottle.” He’s more or less the same old Byrne but in a regular-size suit, delivering brilliant soliloquies about voting, while 11 backing musicians play a floor-shaking mix of Talking Heads…

country’s surprise superstar

THE COUNTRY MUSIC that Luke Combs loved as a kid growing up in North Carolina in the Nineties may not be considered the coolest by today’s standards: Instead of outlaw music or alt-country, he was a big fan of mainstream Nashville hitmakers Brooks and Dunn, Garth Brooks, and Clint Black. “I’d love to lie to you so people would think I was cool and say I was listening to Merle Haggard when I was 10, but I wasn’t,” Combs says. Combs’ ability to channel that unabashed populism has helped make him one of the biggest stars in country music right now. The burly singer-songwriter — who performs in an oversize fishing shirt and a baseball hat — has scored six Number One singles in the past three years, including the undeniable…

how the clash made ‘london calling’

The Clash were on their first U.S. tour in 1979 when Joe Strummer scribbled down lyrics about a coming Armageddon. “The USA is sinking,” he wrote. “The Ice Age is coming.” It was the first draft of “London Calling,” the title track of the band’s career-defining album. The group’s surviving members are celebrating its 40th anniversary with The London Calling Scrapbook, packed with images of rare artifacts from the era. “I’m quite amazed by how much Joe saved,” says Robert Gordon McHarg, who assembled the book.
