New Reviews: The ghosts of rock's past linger, with new exhumations of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, the Rolling Stones, and the Grateful Dead. For those less intrigued by archaeology, new music from the Jonas Brothers, Yeasayer, and Silversun Pickups might do the trick.
the reason these "exhumations" continue is beacuse the music was better, much better
RIP Dr. John: The R&B musician embodied New Orleans' mystical, voodoo-enriched side, and was a major advocate for the city's musical heritage. Before his acclaimed solo career, he was a session player on records by Sonny & Cher, Aretha Franklin, and the Mothers of Invention....
Have loved his uniqueness for YEARS. Saw him do a free show on an outdoor stage at Rochester, NY's International Jazz Festival a few yrs ago. R.I.P.
I remember listening to Gris Gris when it first appeared. He was great
Another great artist has left the stage 🙁

Musically and lyrically, he ventured into the undiscovered, infinite darkness and left bright flashes of imagery so beautiful and disturbing they - at their most extreme - bear no resemblance to anything else I have ever heard. It's hard not to use big words when talking about Scott Walker. R.I.P.
