Sprague Grayden
Sprague Grayden is a pleasure to talk to about almost anything and everything, which it seems we did. She talked to us about her new role on Fox's "24" as well as previous shows like "Jericho," "Sons of Anarchy" and "Six Feet Under." We also discussed her love of sci-fi and Pez.

We should get this out of the way, since it is probably the first question everyone asks. Your first name is your mom's maiden name, correct? It's very cool.

Yes. Thanks!

So if you have a child, will you maybe name him/her Grayden?

Grayden is a pretty cool first name for a child but I'm going to ...

The Brit Box
The king's ransom of influential and diverse U.K.-based indie pop & rock acts that emerged from Great Britain in the broad wake of '80s post-punk has never been chronicled with serious attention -- until now, and Rhino's vast 4-CD retrospective The Brit Box: U.K. Indie, Shoegaze, And Brit-Pop Gems Of The Last Millennium does just that.

While many artists featured here enjoyed superstar status in Mother England, their impact on U.S. charts was more peripheral-- but their stylistic imprint and collective uber-hip peer-pressure on late 20th century popular music overall is undeniable. Wit...

Richard Ashcroft
Richard Ashcroft has confessed he took Prozac to help him cope with depression. The Verve singer - who is married with two sons - admits he has always been a "depressive" but says the pills didn't help. He said: "I'd definitely say I'm a depressive, someone who suffers from depression.

"Without music and creativity I'd need other forms of therapy. But for me, the life process is the process of healing yourself. Some people need pills for it - I've tried medication and found that it just doesn't work for me. It's very, very synthetic."

The former frontman of The Verve says he decid...
