Loudon Wainwright III

Loudon Wainwright III is an accomplished singer-songwriter, an occasional actor, and the scion of a musical family. Three of his children - Martha Wainwright, Rufus Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche are professional musicians.

Loudon Wainwright's career began in the 1960s, and he's earned a passionately devoted following over the past 40 years. Among those fans is Judd Apatow, who's cast Wainwright in several projects, including Undeclared and Knocked Up (for which he also wrote the soundtrack). His new album, High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project, is a tribute to early country music legend Charlie Poole, featuring both covers of songs Poole made famous and original music inspired by Poole.

Rob Halford is the legendary Metal God, and frontman of seminal heavy metal group Judas Priest. The band's hits include Breaking the Law, You've Got Another Thing Coming and Hell Bent For Leather. His new solo album is a heavy metal holiday celebration called Halford III: Winter Songs.(Halford Transcript)

Plus: Audrey Ewell and Aaron Aites moved to Norway to pursue their interest in that country's black metal scene. They discovered a story of extreme aesthetics, murder and church burning. The film they created, Until The Light Takes Us, follows two of the scene's scions. Gylve Nagell, known as "Fenriz," of the band Darkthrone, is a quiet, contemplative metalhead, deeply invested in the medium's aesthetics and rueful of what the scene has become. Varge Vikernes, known as "Count Grischnak," of the band Burzum is a distinct contrast. He's a charismatic and eloquent advocate of an extreme Norweigan nativist political and religious agenda. He's also a convicted murderer and church arsonist.(Ewell and Aites Transcript)
