Is the Gap breakin’ the law? If so, they’ve got another thing coming according to Mastadon guitarist Bill Kelliher, who recently saw a t-shirt sold by the chain that looks suspiciously like the cover of Judas Priest‘s ‘Screaming for Vengeance’ album.
The Great Lawn of New York’s Central Park will play host to a massive rock concert on Sept. 29, with the likes of Neil Young and Foo Fighters headlining. The Global Festival hopes to raise awareness and funds to end global poverty.
Neil Young remains one of the most unpredictable men in rock music. At the opening show of his new tour with Crazy Horse in Albuquerque, N.M. on Friday (Aug. 3), he debuted six songs, yet only one of them was from his most recent album, ‘Americana.’ In addition, he also chose to leave ‘Albuquerque,’ from 1975′s ‘Tonight’s the Night’ off the evening’s agenda. That has to violate some unwritten setlist-making rule, right?

Have you ever gone to a stadium concert and wondered just how many people were responsible in putting the show on and making it run smoothly? Thanks to a new letter from Bruce Springsteen‘s tour director, we’ve learned that it’s a lot more complex than Jackson Browne described in ‘The Load Out.’
Despite being the singer in a group that bears his surname, Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers Band swears he is not the leader. In a new interview, the 64-year old says that the music, not any one person, is in charge.
As they rose to mega-stardom in the ’80s, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s four-hour concerts became a part of his own mythology. However, the concerts weren’t actually four hours long. In reality, they ran about three-and-a-half hours of music, with a 20-25 minute break in the middle.
Of all the songs in Bruce Springsteen‘s extensive catalog, the one that could have expected to be permanently retired following the death of Clarence Clemons was ‘Jungleland.’ Its defining characteristic – a two-minute, 20-second saxophone solo — was Clemons’ career highlight, capturing all the characters’ emotions as it headed into the finale.
