The next time you go to download ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’ or ‘Rock of Ages’ from your favorite online music retailer, you might not get the original version — and as Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott revealed during a recent interview, that’s exactly how the band wants it.
The fifth annual Sunset Strip Music Festival, scheduled for Aug. 16-18 in Los Angeles, will pay tribute to the legacy of the Doors with a three-day celebration featuring performances from an eclectic array of well-known artists.
How do you say ‘The Temples of Syrinx’ in Swedish? Someone better figure it out pretty quickly, because Rush just scheduled an appearance at next year’s Sweden Rock Festival — the band’s first European festival performance in nearly 35 years.
He’s been a part of some of rock’s biggest records and had his musical gifts affirmed with a membership in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but that doesn’t mean Slash has gotten complacent. In fact, during a recent interview with NPR to promote his latest album, ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ he admitted that he’s “really still like I was when I was 15, trying to figure this thing out.”
Eddie Van Halen doesn’t do a lot of interviews. In fact, during much of the last decade, he developed a reputation for being something of a recluse. But now that Van Halen is back on the road promoting its first new album in years, he’s feeling a little chattier — as evidenced by the way he opened up for a recent in-depth profile with Esquire.
Like it or not, worldwide fame (or infamy) is now only a viral video away from any one of us — and once you’ve attained that fame, it can be hard to let it go and return to your ordinary life. Case in point: Robert Wilkinson, the man whose marvelously drunken rendition of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ delivered in the back of a Canadian cop car, made him a social media superstar last week.
After 18 studio albums and more than 40 years together, the Allman Brothers Band doesn’t need to reach far for songs to put in their set list — but they’ve proven more than willing (and thoroughly adept) when it comes to covering other artists’ material. The latest example: their stinging live take on Neil Young‘s ‘Southern Man,’ performed last Saturday (March 17) at New York’s Beacon Theatre.
We’ve known for awhile that Paul McCartney would be continuing his series of catalog reissues with a deluxe version of 1971′s ‘Ram,’ but now details are starting to surface regarding the release — and we could see the results on store shelves before summer.
