LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I f it ain't one model, it's another...at least in Mick Jagger's world. Backpedaling his way towards divorce court, good ole' Mick seems to be using the Clinton philosophy of deny everything until someones proves your lying, then change the story. Read all about it in "Sympathy for the Weasel" from Salt Lake City Weekly's Bill Frost.

Artist Profiles this week include David Nelson, Ricky Skaggs, Mason Ruffner, The Eroica Trio, Salif Keita, and Hydrahead plus capsule reviews in the Mini-Review section.
