Dads With Capes

These are no ordinary dads. Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.), musician Ben Harper, interior designer Nate Berkus and FOXBusiness Network correspondent Blake Burman put their superhero capes on every day to make a difference. The wish this Father’s Day is modest: “Hopefully the boys get daddy a decent night of sleep,” says Burman. But if not…. “that’s what coffee is for.”

Just like Batman says, ‘It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.’ These are no ordinary dads.From passionate politician to Grammy-award winning musician, and f…

David Crosby’s Glorious Renaissance

With a helluva life behind him, and seemingly some rewarding and creatively satisfying life still ahead, David Crosby is happy doing what he does best -- making exceptional music as he approaches 80.

By Steve Houk livingonmusic.com These days, David Crosby is a pretty happy guy. No, I’m serious. And that’s a big deal, especially considering Crosby’s ornery reputation (I’ve never experienced i…

A.J. Croce: His Own Man

Being the son of a legend is a unique experience. A.J. Croce learned to appreciate the depth of his father’s legacy early on, all as he was developing his own style and direction as a musician.

“I didn’t realize the talent before I realized the celebrity," Croce said. “The fact that people behave differently or introduce you as the son of so and so, that’s not always easy. But I think that when I started playing, I realized that he was a great songwriter. ..[and what] a great gift he had."

By Steve Houk livinonmusic.com   For singer/songwriter AJ Croce, being an up and coming musician and having the name Croce, in addition to looking just like his revered late father, well, th…
