While the emergence of disco and punk dominated the streets of New York City in the mid-'70s, groups like Sweet, Kiss, and Starz attempted to keep the hard rock home fires burning, even in the face of ever-changing pop music. Make no mistake, though: the majority of Starz's eponymous debut record isn't designed for the top of the charts. It's a simple, catchy, riff-driven album from start to finish. Even with the formulaic and predictably safe arena rock of "Detroit Girls" and "Tear It Down," the full album fails to give the boost that the group so desperately needed to reach the plateaus of an Aerosmith, Kiss, or any arena rock group of that caliber. A mediocre debut, to be sure, and definitely not the release for casual fans to introduce themselves to the group.

Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale.
