Muse 20 Year Reunion

Petition Formed Demanding Muse Play 20th Anniversary Show

Muse has always been one of those bands that you either really love or cannot stand the sound of. For whatever reason, their music just has a polarizing effect amongst the rock community. Seeing as there will always exist a hardcore legion of rabid Muse fans, it shouldn’t be too surprising to learn that a petition has been formed demanding Muse play a show on their 20th anniversary. Sounds reasonable, no? Well, the petition goes on further, stating that Muse…

Lemmy Is Back

Lemmy’s Back!

Good news, everyone! As you may or may not remember, heavy rock legends Motorhead have been forced to cancel and postpone a number of live dates due to the health concerns of frontman Lemmy Kilmister. However, as April 11th, the group is back to perform live once more! The comeback show, as it’s been dubbed, took place at Club Nokia out in Los Angeles. Interestingly enough, the band was actually joined by Slash for the finale, which was “Overkill” and…

Outkast: Big Boi and Andre 3000

Outkast Finally Reunites

One of the most hotly anticipated pieces of music news for the entire year is that Atlanta based rap duo Outkast will be playing shows together for the first time in more than ten years. That announcement was made quite awhile ago, and we’re pleased to tell you readers that the reunion did, in fact, occur. Big Boi and Andre 3000 both showed up on stage at the Coachella music festival last week, and by all accounts, they seem to…

Mars Volta

Mars Volta and Flea Form Supergroup

Supergroups are a pretty hit or miss concept. On the one hand, sometimes they work out fantastically. On the other hand, sometimes you get an Audioslave. Either way, these groups tend not to produce too many records together, but what they do put out is typically quite interesting. The newest supergroup to pop on our radar goes by the name of Antemasque, and is composed of Flea and a number of the members of Mars Volta. Now, now. We know…

Michael Jackson

New Michael Jackson Song Leaks

It was certainly a sad day for the world when the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, passed away. Many thought erroneously thought this would be the end of new releases from the man. After all, when you find yourself buried under six feet of dirt, recording a new hit single isn’t really on your mind. What these people forgot, however, is that posthumously releasing previously unheard of tracks is both a thing that exists and makes people money. For this…

Duff McKagan Finally Reunites with Guns N’ Roses

Posted 11 Apr 2014 in Artist News
Duff McKagan

Guns N’ Roses are one of those classic bands that has suffered through so many lineup changes, they’re practically a different band. Sure, everyone knows the classic lineup with Slash and Axl Rose, but few people realize that Buckethead, Robin Finck, and Josh Freese have also had their turns in the lineup. Because of the ever changing nature of the lineup, it’s easy to see why past members may not want to reunite with the current incarnation of GNR. This…

Paul Stanley Accuses Former KISS Members of Anti-Semitism

Posted 10 Apr 2014 in Artist News
Kiss Paul Stanley

Man, oh man. This KISS story just keeps getting juicier and juicier. To recap, we’ve already told you about how only the original incarnation of KISS is being allowed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which naturally caused enough controversy in the media and within the band to lead to the cancellation of their Hall of Fame inception performance. This is due primarily to the fact that the Hall of Fame only wishes to include the original members…

In an interesting follow up to a story we ran just a few days ago about Jack White’s newest solo album, Lazaretto, White has announced the incredibly interesting way he’ll be spending Record Store Day this year: releasing the world’s fastest album. White, who has been the poster child for Record Store Day for a few years now, will first play a show in Nashville at 10 AM on Record Store Day (April 19). The performance, which will be of…

Jack White Announces New Album

Posted 04 Apr 2014 in General News
Jack White New Album

The release of Jack White’s first solo album, Blunderbuss, received a mixed reception from the musical community. On one hand, many critics regarded the album as a money-making effort, in which White slapped together a dozen or so random songs throughout his career rather than crafting a dedicated and focused album. On the other hand, fans and some critics did really enjoy a lot of the music he put up for sale. Regardless of your opinion on the matter, the…
