Julian, Jay & The Strokes

15 10 2009


I don’t know about you, but I am very excited for the Nov. 3rd release of Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’ first solo album, entitled Phrazes for the Young. To celebrate, I point you to this insightful and (to me, anyway, quite interesting) profile of the Strokes from 2006, written for New York magazine by author Jay McInerney. It offers a balanced portrayal of the band’s rise to fame and of the sometimes tense relationship between its mercurial frontman and the rest of the group. Excellent piece by McInerney. There are few things I enjoy more than well-done profiles of artists/groups that I admire.
