One Track Mind: Rush, "Caravan" (2012)

In a way, Rush got lucky. Things were looking bleak after Fly By Night, and there was record label pressure for something more commercial. The guys decided to be true to themselves

One Track Mind: Steve Hackett, "'Til These Eyes/ Enter the Night" (2012)

Guitarist Steve Hackett is issuing a double-sided benefit single, “Til These Eyes/Enter The Night,” on May 21, 2012, to coincide with a one-night event where he will celebrate his stint as a member of Genesis.

One Track Mind: Ryan Shaw, "Karina" (2012)

Is there a place for, you know, an American in a world of soul shouters dominated by a certain big-voiced Brit superstar? Cut to two-time Grammy-nominated R&B singer Ryan Shaw, who returns on May 15, 2012, with Real Love
