Over the last 45 years, Iron Butterfly's 'In-A- Gadda-Da-Vida' has become a comic punchline, a whipping boy for the overblown and pretentious aspects of rock and roll. But, strip away the years of abuse and you have a genuine rock classic.
After a few decades on the road, Duff McKagan has learned a thing or two about how to keep people from going crazy when they're stuck with each other for extended periods of time. The former Guns N' Roses bassist shared a bit of that wisdom in his latest column for the Seattle Weekly, titled 'Top 12 Tour Bus Rules and No-Nos.'
Are you hoping to get a good look at Kiss performing on their righteous spider stage, but you're stuck in one of the rock-deficient areas that the band will be passing by on their latest tour? Good news: Now you can watch them from the comfort of your own home.
Joan Jett is suing Hot Topic, the mall staple and retail chain that caters to kids with its rock music-inspired fashion, for copyright infringement. Apparently the store's new Blackheart lingerie line bears more than a passing resemblance to the name of Jett's old band, as well as her style.
A fan has paid more than a grand for a robe that bassist John Paul Jones would have worn on Led Zeppelin's ill-fated 1980 U.S. tour. Drummer John Bonham's death on Sept. 25 that year scuttled the shows and ultimately ended the band.
The headline of Spin's new interview with Black Sabbath's Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler promises that they "answer the hard questions." And the heavy metal duo approached the occasion with the proper spirit, pulling no punches with their responses.
Hey, who doesn't like cranking up some Pink Floyd every now and then and playing some mean air guitar to 'Comfortably Numb'? But apparently a fan in England has taken his love of the band a little too far, a little too late in the night and a little too often.
