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.
There's no doubt that Soundgarden are one of the hottest concert attractions in the rock world nowadays, especially since they've just released 'King Animal,' their first new album in 16 years. So how would you like to win a trip to see the band performing in their hometown of Seattle, where they began their rise to fame?
Most of us, of course, know the long-bearded Billy Gibbons for his work with ZZ Top, but before that, he was a member of the '60s psychedelic outfit the Moving Sidewalks. Now, the guitar great has revealed plans to reunite with that band for a one-off show in support of the career retrospective, 'Moving Sidewalks: The Complete Collection.'
29 years ago, Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen lost his arm in a car wreck. But the musician has since rebounded from that setback, and he's hoping his experience will help wounded soldiers deal with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) stemming from their battlefield experiences and injuries.
