It's been a long, often rocky road for Roky Erickson. The psychedelic music pioneer has had his share of problems over the years -- legal, drug and mental among them. But judging from his show at Cleveland's Beachland Ballroom on Feb. 8, he now seems to be embracing his glorious musical past.
Up until now, Jimi Hendrix's life hasn't been all that well documented on film. There have been plenty of concert movies featuring mostly hazy and grainy footage of the guitar great onstage, and a few documentaries hoping to peel away the man from the myth, but there's never been a definitive work about the artist and his legend.
While it’s true that Sammy Hagar may not be able to drive 55, the Red Rocker and self-proclaimed “CEO of Rock” has made easy work of rocking for the past 40 years. In fact, those years are on full display in his current Four Decades of Rock tour.
This past Thursday (Oct. 24), Ace Frehley and Peter Crissperformed together for the first time since 2000 as part of an all-star band. The concert, a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Eddie Trunk's radio show, took place at New York's Hard Rock Cafe.
Over 40 years on, UFO remain one of hard rock's most treasured, and yet most under appreciated bands ever.

Thursday night at the Tangier in Akron, Ohio, neither one showed any real signs of wear and tear.
