Don’t look now, metal fans, but another one of the genre’s classic records just celebrated a once impossible-seeming milestone: Judas Priest‘s ‘Screaming for Vengeance,’ which gave the band its big commercial breakthrough in the U.S., turned 30 last month.
Getting Ted Nugent riled up about politics has become the reporting equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel, but when the Nuge sat down for an interview with the Broward-Palm Beach New Times recently, the writer couldn’t resist — and Nugent was all too happy to oblige, taking the opportunity to go off on yet another tirade about what he sees as an epic struggle between good and evil.
When Jimi Hendrix arrived in London in 1966, he was just another would-be rock star with a few pennies to his name. Within a few months, he’d become an international phenomenon — and cemented an association with Britain that remains a cause for celebration in the UK today.
If you were one of the potential investors looking to own a piece of Fender after the guitar maker announced its plans for an IPO in March, we have some bad news for you: The company isn’t going public after all.
As anyone who’s ever read a Steven Tyler press release knows, it can be difficult to understand where he’s really coming from on any particular subject, and Tyler’s rambling explanation for the last-minute scheduling bump for the new Aerosmith record is no exception. Happily, we have guitarist Brad Whitford to set the record straight.
When Tommy Lee posted an open letter to fans a couple of weeks ago griping about people always wanting to have their picture taken with him, some took it as petty complaining from a rock star who’s lost touch with the people who helped make him famous. But in a recent interview, he revealed that his misgivings run a little deeper.
They can’t seem to figure out how best to celebrate their 50th anniversary, but yesterday (July 11) the Rolling Stones were able to agree on at least one thing: It was time to return to the site of their first gig and take a picture to mark the occasion.
Twenty-two years after the tour, the Rolling Stones have finally gotten around to releasing a live document of their 1990 stand at the Tokyo Dome — and all 24 tracks will cost you less than five bucks.
The iconic Fender logo may need to be upgraded to include a few dollar signs thanks to a healthy IPO — Initial Public (Stock) Offering — that looks to raise as much as $160.5 million, putting the venerable guitar maker’s value in the neighborhood of $395 million.
Nearly 40 years after the Grateful Dead used it to get out of their contract with Warner Bros. — and flout the traditions of the “greatest hits” record while they were at it — the live album ‘History of the Grateful Dead Vol. 1 (Bear’s Choice)’ is getting the vinyl reissue treatment.
Kiss fans have been waiting nearly three years for new material, and their patience has been further tested with a few months of additional unexpected delays for the band’s new ‘Monster’ album — so you can imagine how eagerly they’ve responded to the set’s leadoff single, ‘Hell or Hallelujah.’
