LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

P unk-rock enigma Patti Smith sits down for an extensive interview, discussing her new album, the state of the world, and the state of rock and roll.

While the gun-control debate rages across Texas, people attending the recent SXSW music showcase in Austin were reaching for "Revolver," a new magazine for people who like to read about music.

Can two aging musicians from Lebanon and Syria create the kind of excitement about Arabic music that some old veteranos did for Cuban pop?

Plus, the latest from John Prine, two views of the recent SXSW, and more.
