    Composer, Interrupted - Sarah Cahill Unleashes an Angry Stream of Ruth Crawford Homages

    After watching Kid Rock debut "Forever" from Cocky on MTV, I became convinced that the only things separating him from Brit bangers-and-mash hard rock of the early '80s is a (conspicuously diminished) hip-hop influence, a video producer, one monster...
