It's not quite accurate to say Primal Scream use Robert Plant for backing vocals on 'Elimination Blues.' The Led Zeppelin lead singer is more of an instrument, used to sweeten an experimental blues song. It's a bold move to ignore the temptation to put Plant in a starring role.

If the eight songs on Black Sabbath's just-released '13' aren't enough new reunited Sabbath for you, four bonus tracks are available from a couple of different places, adding 20 minutes to the album's 53-minute running time. But how do these bonus songs stack up against the rest of '13'?

Chicago has held a special pull for the Rolling Stones from before the group even existed. Mick Jagger was famously carrying albums from Chicago-based Chess Records when he ran into his childhood pal Keith Richards at the Dartford railway station in 1960. It began a partnership that, 53 years later, brought them back to the city on May 31, the second night of a

The Rolling Stones are among the most exhaustively chronicled bands in the world, so it must have been difficult for director Brett Morgen to find a new angle from which to approach his subject.

429 Records

'Don't Want Lies,' the debut single from the Stephen Stills-led group the Rides is best viewed through a blues lens as opposed to a rock lens. Kenny Wayne Shepherd's guitar dominates a four-and-a-half-minute long slow-jam, and it would be even better if he soloed from start to finish.

One's opinion of Rob Zombie's cover of 'We're An American Band' will go no further than one's opinion of Rob Zombie. The song is truly a cover -- the hard rocker changes very little about the Grand Funk Railroad original beyond putting his scorched, metal vocals in place of Don Brewer's.
