‘Ready Steady Go’ served not only as the opening tune for Billy Idol as he dominated a steamy Casino Ballroom in Hampton Beach, N.H. on June 2, but also the general vibe of the evening as the iconic rocker seamlessly coasted through the evening, making it look easy.
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. He found it with 'Crossfire Hurricane,' which tells the story of the Stones' rise from obscurity in the blues clubs of London into the touring megalith that they became by the end of the '70s.
'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.

Cheap Trick took their arena-friendly sounds to an intimate setting in New York City on Sunday night (April 28) to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the performances that were recorded for their landmark live album 'Cheap Trick at Budokan.'
Ted Nugent, Styx and REO Speedwagon retold the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears Sunday night (April 21) in Toledo, Ohio -- each striking a different balance between well-rehearsed craft and spontaneity.
