Dream Theater are one of the most respected live acts in rock and metal, so any show would be a treat! But the band has one special gig coming up on their schedule in Boston and you could be there. The group will play at the Boston Opera House at the invite of the esteemed Berklee College of Music and Loudwire, Noisecreep and Ultimate Classic Rock are giving you the chance to catch the show.
Yesterday Motley Crue confirmed that they will embark on one final world tour before ending their career. At the press conference announcing this trek, they even signed a first of its kind 'Cessation of Touring' contract that apparently prevents them from getting back together, just to show how serious they are.
We all know that Aerosmith's Steven Tyler loves the camera, and his stint on 'American Idol' gave us a close-up look at his outrageous personality on full display. But long before he started coming up with humorous and interesting critiques, Tyler was perhaps a little less choosy in how he made it onto television. For instance, check out his 2002 appearance on the Hilary Duff Disney Channel series 'Lizzie McGuire.'
It's been a banner year for Pearl Jam, who released the stellar new album 'Lightning Bolt' in October. Now, Loudwire, Noisecreep, Ultimate Classic Rock and Diffuser are teaming up to offer one lucky fan the chance to win a Pearl Jam branded skate deck.
One of the greatest albums of the '90s, Nirvana's 'In Utero,' turned 20 this year and we're giving you a chance to win a major prize package featuring the 20th anniversary editions of this great disc.
'Ramble On' was the standout track of side two of 'Led Zeppelin II,' perched perfectly between 'Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman)' and 'Moby Dick.' The track, which is No. 7 on our list of the Top 50 Led Zeppelin Songs, was a study in musical style shifts, moving from the contemplative, almost jazzy verses Robert Plant provided into the hard-hitting chorus where the full band kicked in with force and Plant's powerful voice was on display.
'Rock and Roll' holds the distinction of being one Led Zeppelin composition that is credited to all four members (most were credited only to Jimmy Page and Robert Plant), as it came about during a warm-up session in the studio. The track, No. 11 on our countdown of the Top 50 Led Zeppelin Songs, was later recorded at the Headley Grange Mansion with the assistance of adjunct Rolling Stone Ian Stewart on piano.
It was a time of transition for Pink Floyd, who returned after their supposed demise on Sept. 8, 1987 (in the U.S., one day earlier in the U.K.) minus one key member but with a new album titled 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason.' The disc would be a key one for the band as it would make or break their future ability to tour and record without bassist Roger Waters.
