Fans who attended the Anaheim, Calif. date of the Rolling Stones' '50 & Counting' Tour' got a little bit more than they bargained for Saturday night (May 18). Former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl came out mid-set at the Honda Center to join the legendary rockers for a searing rendition of 'Bitch.'
Rock and roll and sex appeal are pretty much inextricable. The term "rock and roll" is itself a sexual euphemism, and since the very beginning of the genre, when Elvis Presley's swiveling hips were considered a threat to America's youth, rock music has been bound up in visual appeal and sexualized marketing

His bizarre, conceptual live performances were an astonishing mix of exceptional musicianship, onstage theatrics and pop culture satire. On May 16, 1988 Zappa showcased some of the standout live tracks from various eras of his development by releasing a career-spanning double live album titled 'You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Vol 1.'
Kiss recently revealed that the staging for their upcoming tour will feature an enormous, fireball-spewing spider. And while the stage set is brand new, the idea is not -- in fact, David Bowie's 1987 Glass Spider tour featured a huge spider set, and more than a decade before that, original shock rocker Alice Cooper used an oversized arachnid as part of his 1975 tour.
