How a Stroke Turned a 63-Year-Old Into a Rap Legend

quote [ It was the very late 1990s when Hershfield stepped off the bus, dressed like a doctor who lived in Beverly Hills. At 43rd and Leimert, he found a crowd of teenagers surrounding a community arts center called the ?kaos Network.? This had to be it: Spontaneous rap battles were breaking out, and dancers writhed on the sidewalk, seizure-like. At the entrance, a young man sized him up.

?Would you like to hear something?? Hershfield asked politely.

?Sure, what?s your name?? the man asked.

Hershfield looked at him.

?My name is Dr. Rapp.? ]

F. Scott Fitzgerald said that there were no second acts in American life - Dr. Rapp begs to differ.

Battle of the Ax Men: Who Really Built the First Electric Rock 'n' Roll Guitar?

quote [ Many places deserve to be called the birthplace of rock ?n? roll. Memphis often gets the nod because that?s where Sam Phillips of Sun Records recorded Elvis Presley belting out an impromptu, uptempo cover of ?That?s All Right? in 1954. Cleveland makes the list since it?s the place where, in 1951, a local disc jockey named Alan Freed coined the genre?s name ]

How to Dance Gothic

quote [ It?s not that hard; just learn these simple moves and soon you can blend in with all the other spooky individuals on the dance floor at your local batcave. After all, for such an individualistic crowd, it?s kind of surprising how goths all seem to use the same moves. ]

Professional advice.

There?s an Alternate Universe of Pre-MTV Music Videos You?ve Never Seen

quote [ The birth of the music video is often credited to MTV. It was 1981 when the first 24-hour music channel launched on our screens with ?Video Killed the Radio Star?. Oh the irony, right? Wrong. Video and the radio star actually go way back. Get comfortable, because we?re about to have some fun getting to know the precursor to MTV? Le Scopitone! ]
