David Bowie Finds Religion in New Video

From the looks of the photos leaked from the set of David Bowie's latest video, it appears that the former Ziggy Stardust has found religion. Or maybe he's playing one of the apostles. We wouldn't put it past him. After all, he did star as Pontius Pilate in 'The Last Temptation of Christ' and played a Christ-like alien in 'The Man Who Fell to Earth.'

The Kinks Inducted Into Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame

Congratulations to the Kinks, who have narrowly defeated the Beatles to become the first band nominated into the 100% fan-voted Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame.

It all started with a couple of power chords fed through a modified guitar amp. Actually, it all started with an underwhelming cover of Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ in February 1964. But no one really remembers that, and it doesn’t matter. So, it all started when Dave Davies struck the first distorted chord of ‘You Really Got Me’ and his brother Ray stepped up to the mic to deliver one of rock’s most defining songs.

Fleetwood Mac, ‘Rumours (Expanded Edition)’ — Album Review

Breakup albums don’t get much better than ‘Rumours,’ Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 blockbuster that was recorded as band members went through various stages of relationship adjustment. When they made their breakthrough self-titled album in 1975, Fleetwood Mac included two couples, one married; by the time ‘Rumours’ was released, they were broken up.

The Beatles, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ – Film Review

Going into the last quarter of 1967, the Beatles couldn’t get any bigger. Their masterwork, ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,’ pretty much changed the way pop music was made, sounded and consumed. They had transcended the rock ‘n’ roll ghetto, entering the final phase of a career that glided past pop music’s boundaries and into a wide-open realm of exploration and experimentation.

AC/DC, ‘Live at River Plate’ — Album Review

When you get right down to it, AC/DC might be the most reliable band on the planet. In 40 years, they never once challenged fans with anything other than straight-up, uncomplicated rock ‘n’ roll played with fuss-free intensity. They never made a concept album. They never dabbled in pop, R&B, hip-hop or electronic music. And they never swerved from their playbook of barroom-meets-arena swagger dosed with a shot of heavy blues.
