    I Love a Band in a Uniform - The fashionable dos and duds of pop's greatest costume gimmick bands

    Ever go to a KISS convention and see people clamoring for a Bruce Kulick doll, or a lunchbox with Eric Singer's mug plastered on the side? Of course not! It took Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley 13 pageant-free years to figure out what the rest of us kn...

    Auto-Neurotica - Performance artist Simone Grey lays her heart Bare

    Ray Bailey Blue Street (Visa Records) Ray Bailey calls his label Visa because that's how he paid for it--by maxing out his credit card once he got pink-slipped from Zoo Records. Not that it was Zoo's fault. The L.A. bluesman never belonge...

    If It's Misfits, You Must Acquit - Can Earth A.D. 1996 take a Glenn Danzig-less, Jerry Only-led Misfits seriously?

    Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1970 hit "Lodi" immortalized the New Jersey town as a hard-luck haven for touring musicians, as far removed from fame and fortune as Earth is from Uranus. But imagine John Fogerty turning punk, wearing a Toys "R" Us ske...

    Contract and Expel - Famous parting shots from artists formerly "under exclusive arrangement" with their labels
