Bad Company ‘Can’t Wait to Hit the Stage’ for First Tour of Mainland Europe Since 1975

Since 2008, the surviving members of the classic Bad Company lineup have occasionally regrouped to play shows in select parts of the world, such as the United States and Japan.

Mainland Europe was not part of Bad Co.’s itineraries — until this year. Starting June 9 in Sweden, singer Paul Rodgers, guitarist Mick Ralphs and drummer Simon Kirke will launch a brief tour of continental Europe, their first one there since 1975 (way back when the band’s second album, ‘Straight Shooter,’ was released).

Blues music has always been important to Robert Plant, and the same can be said of Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Clarksdale is where Plant will be in August when he headlines the 25th anniversary edition of the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival.

Slash Announces Release Date for ‘Much More Cohesive’ Second Solo Album

A year ago, Slash was in Texas rocking out with pop stars the Black Eyed Peas and Usher as part of the Super Bowl XLV halftime show.

This past weekend, he was a good 2,000-plus miles away from Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis — and for good reason. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist was in Los Angeles wrapping up his second solo studio album, which is slated for a May 22 release on Slash’s own Dik Hayd International imprint.

Jason Becker Documentary Schedules World Premiere

At the start of the 1990s, young guitarist Jason Becker was riding high, having joined forces with ex-Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth to record what would become Roth’s third full-length solo album, 1991′s ‘A Little Ain’t Enough.’

But around the same time, Becker was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Now paralyzed and unable to speak or play guitar, Becker still continues to make new music. His incredible story has been captured in the new documentary ‘Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet,’ which will make its world premiere March 3 in San Jose, California.

Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir Guitars Are Part of a New Grateful Dead Exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

When Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh first sang the memorable ‘Truckin’ lyric “What a long, strange trip it’s been,” the Grateful Dead had only been together for about five years. Of course, the Dead’s rich musical journey continued for another 25 years, effectively ending with Garcia’s death on Aug. 9, 1995.

This spring, Deadheads can look back on the band’s storied career in a new exhibit called ‘Grateful Dead: The Long, Strange Trip,’ which opens to the public April 12 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

Styx Revisits ‘The Grand Illusion’ and ‘Pieces of Eight’ Albums on New Concert DVD

As 1976 came to a close, Styx was a moderately successful band still breaking in a new guitarist/singer.

Two years (and two albums) later, the band — fueled by the fresh songwriting and six-string contributions of Tommy Shaw — was among the best-selling acts in America.

Styx recently revisited its platinum-selling one-two punch of 1977′s ‘The Grand Illusion’ and 1978′s ‘Pieces of Eight’ on tour, and Eagle Rock will release the sights and sounds from one show on Jan. 31.
