In 2007, legendary singer Etta James was booked for the PAETEC Jazz Festival in downtown Baltimore. I interviewed her a few weeks before the show -- but she later had to back out due to health problems. Here is part of the interview, which was never published before. Apparently, when James used to play Baltimore back in the '50s and '60s, she was quite the target. Etta, do you have any memories of Baltimore from back in the day? I used to go to Baltimore at least two or three times a year, at the Royal Theatre.

Gavin DeGraw is hungry. He's walking around downtown New Orleans in the afternoon, looking for a decent spot where he can grab something. In a few hours, the singer-songwriter will be back on the road, en route to a gig in Arkansas. Right now, though, DeGraw chats on his cell phone about his life, his music and how the two come together on his impressive debut, Chariot. "I love to be on stage," says the native New Yorker, 26. "Just the opportunity to play live has been great. People need to know that what they're hearing on record is real."
