D’Angelo does his first TV interview in a decade in a New Jersey hotel for the documentary Finding the Funk. Touring around the country on a bill with Mary J. Blige and finishing work on his first album in twelve years, D is making a welcome return to performing. He talked about funk’s history, how Prince turned him onto music, and how hip hop impacted his understanding of funk. D’s knowledge of black music history is as vast as his skills on keyboards, guitars and vocals are deep.

D.C. punk activist Mark Andersen enters the dark heart of Bad Brains in 2012 in this week’s cover story, “I Against I”:
A certain word kept popping up in conversations with other folks: schizophrenia. A former manager, Paul Cornwell, used it when I interviewed him for Dance of Days, as does Guy Oseary, from Maverick Records, in A Band in DC. A more professionally grounded diagnosis can’t be found, for everyone close to H.R. says the same thing: He won’t see a doctor. With that in mind, I wasn’t quite sure it was even right to go see Bad Brains perform.
