Last Orders: An Interview with Director Fred Schepisi

Give Me Life, Give Me Hope

Although George has passed on, his spirit and talent lives forever in the music. Thank you George, your talent and music continues to enrich our lives forevermore.


George Harrison, Like All Things, Passes

For George, let's remember that it is sometimes within silence that we can make ourselves best heard.


All Too Much: George, History, and Psychedelia

25 Up: Punk’s Silver Jubilee: “Good Clean Fun”: Mike Thorne Looks Back on Punk

25 Up: Punk’s Silver Jubilee: So Tough: The Boy Behind the Sid Vicious Myth

25 Up: Punk’s Silver Jubilee: Atypical Girls

Punk produced a larger number of influential female artists than most any other pop movement [but] most female punk artists either denied their feminism or avoided the issue altogether. The result was one of punk's greatest contradictions: While playing music without a blatant feminist agenda, female artists made real inroads in the male-dominated music world.
