If you are looking for a new band that lays down a jammy, funky sound then the Tuscaloosa, Alabama band MOTHER.FUNK will be right up your alley.  You may not have heard of them…yet, but they have been playing the bar and club scene around the University of Alabama since they were formed back in 2010. After stumbling across this band I decided it was time to do a little research and see what the buzz surrounding them was all…

Metallica Rock Acoustic Set At MusiCares Benefit

Posted 24 May 2014 in General News

I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind for many fans when they hear the name Metallica is the thought of loud guitars and huge drums.  Most people probably don’t think of a nice soft acoustic set when conjuring up images of the biggest metal band in the world. But that’s exactly what fans who attended the MusiCares benefit got. Ok so maybe it wasn’t nice and soft but it was acoustic.  First lets tell you a little bit…

Foo Fighters New Album: HBO Documentary Coming Soon

Posted 19 May 2014 in Artist News, General News, News, Performance, Recording

Dave Grohl is at it again!  I have no problem admitting that in my personal opinion Paul McCartney is the coolest person alive.  The reasons for that statement about Sir Paul are fairly obvious if you know anything about the history of music and Paul will occupy the top spot as the king of cool until the time comes for him to move on to another plane of existence.  However, Dave Grohl is making a strong case to fill the…

Deryck Whibley of Sum 41: One Drink And I Could Die

Posted 19 May 2014 in Artist News, General News, News

It seems like we hear sad news like this all to often.  You know the story.  Boy dreams of living the rock n roll life.  Boy joins a rock band.  Boy makes music by channeling the experiences of hard living and even harder partying.  Hard partying catches up with a now famous rock star and things begin to go south very quickly.  You may think we are talking about Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, John Bonham or any of the many…

Even today, however, sales of AEGEA are limited to an initial pressing of 250 copies; hopefully the lucky few fans…
