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.
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.
