Stu Cook of CCR

45 years ago, Creedence Clearwater Revival headlined the Saturday night slot at the legendary Woodstock Music Festival.

Featherweight Flick

Southpaw is a boxing movie with, dare I say, far too much boxing in it. I realize that sounds strange, but director Antoine Fuqua’s new movie isn’t very interested in its extended training montages or improbable fight scenes—and that’s not entirely a dig.
