For our second annual People Issue, we rounded up a new slew of folks, among them many music types, who inhabit our fair city. We got their stories, and they're good'uns. Gold talked to Chris Scruggs -- and is possibly the first person to report on Scruggs' only recent first-time meeting with his grandfather Earl. He also picked the powerful brain of local rock lawyer Kent Marcus, a must-read for anyone still lookin' for a record deal.

Maloney wrote about trash-pop star Ke$ha, who just got too ridiculously famous to do a 5-minute phoner or even answer questions via email, and illuminated the talents of Billy Goats DJ Sarah Chrosniak, aka DJ Eticut. Patrick took on the bloggers/obscurists at Nashville's Dead, and I give you mega-rock producer Nick Raskulinecz, now a Nashville resident. (Any Superdrag fans will know him as the dude who did the Fabulous 8-Track Sound of Superdrag and Stereo 360 Sound as well as In the Valley of the Dying Stars*. He talks about his decision not to record/produce Last Call for Vitriol.)

If none of that's enough to intrigue you, the pictures (outtakes here) taken by our staff photog and all-around badass Eric England are killa-cool.

*Sentence corrected.
