Making of MuskAMAZING ARTICLE ON ELON Musk [“The Architect of Tomorrow,” RS 1301]. Maybe our future is safe with creative, motivated people like him instead of callous, greedy, power-hungry Trumpites. Musk definitely needs to pause and look within to examine how his relationships with women fail. Surely he is worthy of the care and intense focus he gives the products of his fertile imagination.Linda Olson Tacoma, WAI COMMEND MUSK FOR SHARing his life’s journey. The traumas he has endured, especially at the hands of his father, are something I could relate to. We can go on to be successful in anything we have passion for, while turning anger and resentments into driving forces that can literally change our world – whether here on Earth or one day on Mars!Leilani Pacheco-Datta, Kailua-Kona,…

1. Charli XCX“Out of My Head”“Glitter in my sheets/Dancing on no sleep,” the punky U.K. diva sings on this darkly booming track (featuring Tove Lo and ALMA). It’s a club banger that feels like a noir thriller, and more proof she’s one of pop’s true innovators.2. N.E.R.D feat. Future“1000”It’s great having Pharrell’s avant-rap crew N.E.R.D back to make hip-hop a weirder place. When he sings about “rainbow angst,” on “1000,” it’s a perfect way to sum up the music’s radiant vertigo flow.3. Sorry“Lies”A top-drawer shame spiral from a great new English alt-rock band. Lead singer Asha Lorenz moans about falling to pieces, and the guitars pull her hard into the emo deep.4. Sufjan Stevens“Tonya Harding”Stevens’ genuinely moving (and totally hilarious) tribute to figure skating’s one true gangsta was rejected by…

The Black Keys frontman will hit the road in February.Robert Finley“Medicine Woman”Someone sent me a video of Robert singing a song on the street. I co-wrote this for him. Every time he opened his mouth to sing, it parted my hair.The Beatles“Help!”This was my jam when I was a kid. They were so funny in their movies. They were always looking cool, but also goofy at the same time. It’s the perfect combination.Al Green“Love and Happiness”It’s a really personal style of gospel. You feel like you’re soul-searching when you’re listening to it.Don Williams“Lord, I Hope This Day is Good”This is very intimate, light and soulful. Nothing sounded like his records in Nashville when they came out.Willie Nelson“Blue Skies”It’s crazy someone in the 1970s could take a Broadway song from the…

greta van fleet’s misty mountain revival

T of the Michigan band Greta Van Fleet look, act and sound like they were grown in the lab of some classic-rock-loving mad scientist. How else to explain a group of kids who go around dropping references to Vanilla Fudge’s Carmine Appice and Free’s Paul Kossoff, who cover Fairport Convention and Howlin’ Wolf – and who, by the way, make huge, throwback, blues-riff-riding rock that often sounds preposterously, uncannily close to newly unearthed Led Zeppelin tracks? “We are like a bunch of old men,” acknowledges pixieish, curly-headed frontman Josh Kiszka, possessor of a blowtorch of a high tenor, with casual access to notes that Robert Plant misplaced during the Carter administration.The singer, who was starring in high school plays not long ago, is sipping tea on an early-December afternoon in…

Jon Bon Jovi in 1987BON JOVIThey’ve sold 130 million records and played almost every stadium in the world, but it took nearly a decade of eligibility for Bon Jovi to enter the Hall. It’s a chance for them to play with original bassist Alec John Such (who has been largely off the grid since he left in 1994) and guitarist Richie Sambora, who departed in 2013, citing burnout from the road. “Nobody has called me yet,” he says. “But I imagine [a reunion performance] would be protocol, and I’d be obliged. There’s no malice or anything – 31 years in a band is just a long time.”Ocasek in 1987THE CARSThe Ric Ocasek-led band broke up in 1987, but re-formed in 2010 for a new album, Move Like This, and a…
