Dave Grohl is not your average rocker. He's a hard-rock lifer with a genuine soft side, a platinum-selling frontman and dependable hit-maker who's still happy to be a drummer for hire in bands that interest him (Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, etc.). The man is also a great singles artist, every year or two delivering a memorable new track to the airwaves. But since the revelation of the Foo Fighters' 1995 debut, he hasn't been able to sustain that quality for an entire album.

The Foo Fighters are Dave Grohl (sitting up, from left), Nate Mendel, Chris Schifflet and Taylor Hawkins (with glasses). You may already know this about the Foo Fighters, but in case you don't, listen up: The band is all about the music, OK? No image tinkering for this group, thank you very much. Sure, the Foo Fighters have platinum albums, Grammys, loyal fans, love from critics. And the guys appreciate all of it. But at the end of the day, after all the praise and controversy, after folks get over the fact that the Foo Fighters are not Nirvana, you get a quartet that rocks hard and with energy to spare.

WHFS is back, in an alternative way. The much-mourned and lowly rated rock station - which switched to Spanish pop only this month - has been revived and refitted for an online audience. On Friday, Infinity Broadcasting and America Online launched WHFS.com - a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week online radio station featuring new music, old music from WHFS, and performances from past HFStivals. If listeners aren't interested in an audio stream of the former rock station, WHFS can also be heard weeknights and all day Saturdays and Sundays on Baltimore's Live 105.7, with host Tim Virgin, who had worked at the former station.

For some of us, David Bowie's duet with Bing Crosby on a long-ago holiday TV special was a defining generation-gap moment. So it's hard to accept that the former Ziggy Stardust is promoting his new album with an appearance on Live by Request, a show launched by crooner Tony Bennett on cable's A&E. With everyone waiting for "Young Americans" and "Space Oddity," it's a platform that relies more on nostalgia than the work of an evolving artist. Appropriately, that's also the appeal of Heathen, a beautifully crafted sonic excursion that never quite fulfills its lofty conceptual potential.

Don't think you'll get a clear peek at the memory-impaired days of Ronald Reagan in the Newsweek cover story for Oct. 2. Based mostly on written comments by Nancy Reagan and interviews with Patti Davis and Michael Reagan, the article is severely limited by the family's "pact of silence" about Mr. Reagan's condition, and it dwells mostly on mom and daughter. The current life of the Reagan clan is portrayed as a family-values "happy ending," with all the warring family members lovingly reconciled.

When a loud, riotous hard-rock act goes the acoustic route, it's easy to assume the band has "grown up." The campfire takes are supposed to reveal musical and lyrical "depth" previously obscured by fire-alarm guitars and larynx-shredding screams. Sometimes the mission is accomplished brilliantly. The guys of Nirvana, for example, famously went all-acoustic on 1994's MTV Unplugged in New York. As Kurt Cobain's mental distress at the time simmered in his vocals, the band provided solid, sympathetic backing.
