Stephen King: The Rolling Stone Interview

rollingstone.com — Stephen King's office building sits on a particularly dreary dead-end road on the outskirts of Bangor, Maine, just down the street from a gun-and-ammo store, a snowplow dealership and, appropriately enough, an old cemetery. From the outside, the anonymous building looks like a new branch of Dunder Mifflin, a very deliberate choice meant to keep King and his tiny staff safe.

Hear Foo Fighters' Rowdy, New Song 'Congregation'

rollingstone.com — With the Nashville installment of Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways HBO show set to air, the group has shared "Congregation," the raucous, guitar-wailing song it wrote while drawing inspiration from Music City. Specifically, the track contains the line, "And they're singing like a bluebird in the round," presumably a reference to the city's Bluebird Café, which played heavily into the Foos' time in the city.
