The train just keeps a ‘rollin on ‘The Midwest Rock ‘N Roll Express’ tour, featuring the triple bill of Styx, REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent. The classic rock collective that earned a prominent spot on our ‘Must-See Rock Concerts of 2013’ list recently made a pit stop in Springfield, Mass. on April 23. Check out our photos from the show below.
Van Halen finally returned to the stage over the weekend (April 20) at the Stone Music Festival in Sydney, Australia and look who showed up for the festivities – Joe Perry and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. Okay, in all fairness, Aerosmith was on the bill as well, but it still made for some great photo ops behind the scenes.
Last night during the 28th annual induction ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Canadian progressive rock trio Rush finally joined the celebrated cast. As expected, their fans were there in full force to support them last night (April 18) with earth-shaking applause and standing ovations at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif.

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.
