Writing Worth Reading

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Of The Future

The induction of Pearl Jam is almost a foregone conclusion: They were “the last archetypal rock band that was insanely popular”. Radiohead is the next sure bet, as “the last archetypal rock band that was insanely popular and then consciously decided to become less popular”. Eminem? Probably. Beyoncé too. But Coldplay isn’t quite cold yet. LCD Soundsystem is a “long shot”. And The Strokes have pretty much lost it (3,050 words)

Huey Lewis’s Old, Weird America

He was huge in the 1980s, and he’s still touring. Eighty shows this year, the 30th anniversary of Sports. No longer a star, very much a working musician. “Lewis hasn’t been a fixture on pop radio for nearly 25 years, but he remains a reflexively mainstream artist. It’s not in his nature to upset the applecart. He’s still wired to give the public what it wants, however the public wants it, many years after the public has moved on” (4,900 words)
