    Greg Dulli on Reuniting Afghan Whigs, Retaining Some Mystery

    Greg Dulli is a lot of things: lead singer for sultry rockers the Twilight Singers, occasional actor, part owner of New Orleans' R Bar. But he's no longer "ex-frontman" for '90s R&B punks the Afghan Whigs. Eleven years after splitting, the seductively seedy bad boys have reunited to play the Lollapalooza and All Tomorrow's Parties festivals, as well as undertake their own U.S. tour this fall. We caught up with the famously combative Dulli, 47, to talk about nostalgia, corporate Medusas, and his memories of a very unflattering fanzine, shortly before he headed off to the Whigs' old home base, Cincinnati, for rehearsals. In the past, you've said that you were consciously avoiding nostalgia tours. Yet here we are. Isn't this a nostalgia tour? You tell me. Aren't you doing '90s alt rock in 2012?
