LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A   bill amending U.S. copyright laws with respect to satellite re-transmissions of broadcast signals also took away a musician's ability to own the master recordings once a major-label record deal was signed.

The Louis Armstrong Centennial is upon us -- and in the spirit of his generosity, the celebrations will probably last a couple of years.

Thee Headcoats were England's finest garage-punk-blues torchbearers for more than a decade, and they finally called it a day this spring after a couple dozen albums and twice as many singles.

Also, Weezer, Lyle Lovett, and more.
