Many artists claim to possess multiple talents, but it’s not a stretch to say that Queen guitarist Brian May comes closest to actually being a Renaissance Man. Besides being an influential musician, Dr. May -- he’s an astrophysicist who finished his Ph.D. in 2007 -- is also an expert in stereo photography, as evidenced by a new book he’s co-authored, ‘Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures In Hell.’
To say that Led Zeppelin’s seven-minute opus ‘No Quarter’ -- No. 10 on our countdown of the Top 50 Led Zeppelin Songs -- is “a little psychedelic” is a vast understatement. Between Robert Plant’s processed, distorted vocals and John Paul Jones’ roiling electric piano to the slow-churning tempo and Jimmy Page’s dull guitar buzz, the song from 1973’s ‘Houses Of The Holy’ is sinister and woozy.
By the time 1993 rolled around, the members of Aerosmith were rock kingpins once more, buoyed by the multi-platinum success of 1987's 'Permanent Vacation' and 1989's 'Pump.' The band's seemingly unstoppable momentum continued unabated with 'Get A Grip,' which was released on April 20, 1993.
