Ready! Set! moe.

Posted 08 Jul 2014 in General News, News, Performance

I’ve been anticipating moe. coming to Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale for several months.  As soon as it was announced I made sure my schedule was clear and that I had my tickets.  Even though it seems like the band has been on the road non-stop for the last year this is the first opportunity I had to catch them this year. Before I get into the incredible show let me tell you a little about the venue. The maximum…

Bonnaroo Update for Saturday June 14. Webcast Alert.

Posted 14 Jun 2014 in Artist News, Music, News, Performance

Bonnaroo is underway as usual its off to a great start.  If you aren’t one of the fortunate ones who was able to attend the event this year at least there is a little good news.  That good news comes in the form of the live stream.   Sure there is no comparison to actually being there.  You don’t get to experience the weather, the love from other concert-goers and of course the overall ‘Bonnaroo’ experience.  But you can watch…

Bonnaroo 2014

Well friends, the time is finally here: the utterly massive Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee is finally upon us. This giant festival will act as the four day for more than 100,000 individuals, and has grown a reputation for being one of the weirder, anything goes type festivals. In our book, that equates to a fantastic weekend, and it’s for that reason that one of our Guitar News Daily staff writers will be onsite at Bonnaroo all…

Widespread Panic

It was a good few days to be in Raleigh.  Especially if you were inside the Red Hat Amphitheater to see Galactic and Widespread Panic.  The two bands had a 2 night stand and as you would expect there was plenty of funk as well as plenty of excellent rock. Aside from both bands putting on great shows there was also a good amount of collaboration between the two bands.  During the first of the two shows Galactic’s drummer Stanton…

Guns N' Roses

For a band that for all intents and purposes disappeared years ago Guns N’ Roses, specifically Axl Rose, have done an incredible job staying in the press. Guns N’ Roses Reunion? Since Slash, Duff and the rest of the original lineup left the band Guns N’ Roses has been nowhere close to the freight train that took over the rock scene a few decades ago.  That may be about to change.  Well maybe not anytime soon but there are rumors…

Metallica at Glastonbury

Metallica has been dominating the metal world and crossing the globe for decades entertaining fans with their music.  This time the band is making headlines for something other than their music.  Fans of the Glastonbury Festival want Metallica removed as the headlining act.  Why? It hasn’t been all peaches and cream for Metallica lately.  Although they are as popular as ever they’ve been feeling some heat from fans and other bands alike.  Earlier this week the band Mogwai threw some…

Nashville Outlaws: Motley Crue Country Tribute Reveal Album

Posted 20 May 2014 in Artist News, Music, News, Performance, Recording

Motley Crue has built up the reputation of being one of the hardest rocking, hardest partying and long lasting bands in the history of heavy metal.  There is no doubt at all that Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars have earned their reputation.  There have been monstrous hit records, binge drinking and drugging, car crashes, meltdowns and even a homemade porno.  So you can imagine my surprise when I learned that the band has endorsed a tribute…

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…
