John Hammond Recalls His Meetings With Clapton, Hendrix, Dylan and Waitsnew

John Hammond's latest Grammy nomination is for last year's Rough & Tough album, which he recorded at the landmark St. Peter's Church in New York City.

Bob Dylan's Legendary Grinnew

There's a reason he's pegged his concerts as the "Never Ending Tour": The only way he's been able to stay out in front has been to convince us -- and himself -- that he's still an active, modern artist, whose career is far from ending.
