Legendary metal pioneers Black Sabbath are gearing up for a new tour in advance of their forthcoming album, and from the looks of their stage setup, it's going to be an old-school classic show -- not just musically, but visually too.
It’s not every day that two former Kiss guitarists get together for some face time. But at the Monsterpalooza horror convention in Burbank, Calif. this past weekend (April 12-14), Bruce Kulick was spotted showing his support for original Kiss Spaceman Ace Frehley.
Today (April 1), we honor the birth date of one of the most beloved musicians of his era, Ronnie Lane. This Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rocker was a driving force in two British bands of note, the Small Faces and later, the Faces, being joined by singer Rod Stewart and guitarist Ron Wood. Ronnie Lane often brought folk-based songwriting and sensibilities to the bands he joined, giving his songs a organic feel that was very reflective of the times that he lived in.
Our picture of the week captures a nice "rock star" milestone in the life of Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen -- autographing his first-ever vinyl record cover, in this case a copy of the band's 2012 album 'A Different Kind of Truth.'
There probably isn't a heck of a lot of overlap between their fanbases, but that didn't stop Slayer guitarist Kerry King from showing up for Styx's Feb. 8 concert -- or hanging out with Tommy Shaw and James 'JY' Young backstage after the last encore.
Given the eternally hot temperatures in Hell, one would think that a ski resort in Vermont would not be an appropriate place to make the "devil horns" sign. However, Dee Snider, always one to do the unexpected, thinks otherwise, and it's our Pic of the Week.
Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Nirvana fame assembled an all-star cast of musicians for his new documentary 'Sound City,' and for the lucky fans in select cities, he has been taking the show on the road with him. Following performances in Park City, Utah, and Los Angeles, the Sound City Players hit New York City for a one-night stand last night (Feb. 13) at Hammerstein Ballroom.
Although he may claim to be an ordinary average guy and an analog man in a digital world, the truth is that Joe Walsh has a heart of gold. The Eagles and James Gang guitarist recently took time out from his busy schedule to visit Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where he sang, signed autographs and posed for pictures with troops who have lost limbs in combat.
