American Beauty

It's been all about American legends lately, as the following flurry of hyper-links suggests.

First up there was an examination of the roots of Elvis (P not C) featuring contributions from the wonderful Paul Buchanan; then fascinating chats with Rosanne Cash and Kris Kristofferson, plus a review of the latter’s recent Edinburgh show over at
theartsdesk, where I also contributed to a round-up of the month's best new albums. I’ve also reviewed some telly: a great documentary on Merle Haggard and new BBC Four comedy The Great Outdoors.

P.S. I’m now on Twitter (oh yes, always one step ahead of the throng) if anyone fancies dropping in.
