It’s hard to believe, but David Lee Roth‘s ‘Eat ‘Em and Smile’ is more than 25 years old — and although Diamond Dave is back with Van Halen promoting the band’s latest album, ‘A Different Kind of Truth,’ plenty of fans still have fond memories of Roth’s full-length solo debut. One such fan is guitarist Steve Vai, who played on the record, and shared some stories about the ‘Smile’ era during a recent interview.
Just over 45 years ago, the Beatles told us “there’s nothing you can do that can’t be done” — and it surely felt that way for the fans and competitors in attendance at the Olympics on Saturday (August 4), when the stadium joined together in a massive singalong rendition of ‘All You Need Is Love.’
Getting Ted Nugent riled up about politics has become the reporting equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel, but when the Nuge sat down for an interview with the Broward-Palm Beach New Times recently, the writer couldn’t resist — and Nugent was all too happy to oblige, taking the opportunity to go off on yet another tirade about what he sees as an epic struggle between good and evil.
Twenty-two years after the tour, the Rolling Stones have finally gotten around to releasing a live document of their 1990 stand at the Tokyo Dome — and all 24 tracks will cost you less than five bucks.
Syfy’s latest show claims to depict teams of paranormal investigators conducting “first-person investigations of the most frightening claims of paranormal activity along America’s remote back roads.” All of which would sound odd enough if it weren’t for the fact that Ozzy Osbourne‘s son Jack is one of the people doing the investigating.
As if it weren’t weird enough for ZZ Top use a commercial for Jeremiah Weed malt liquor to debut the first single from its upcoming new album, here’s something you may not have realized about the song itself: The new track, ‘I Gotsta Get Paid,’ is a thinly rewritten cover of ’25 Lighters,’ a local late ’90s hit for Houston hip-hop artists DJ DMD, Lil Keke, and MC Fat Pat.
After 18 studio albums and more than 40 years together, the Allman Brothers Band doesn’t need to reach far for songs to put in their set list — but they’ve proven more than willing (and thoroughly adept) when it comes to covering other artists’ material. The latest example: their stinging live take on Neil Young‘s ‘Southern Man,’ performed last Saturday (March 17) at New York’s Beacon Theatre.
Slash is a pretty busy guy these days, between filming commercials with Betty White and responding to rumors of a Guns N’ Roses reunion at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony — but that isn’t enough to keep him from preparing to unleash his new album ‘Apocalyptic Love’ on a rock-starved planet, or from recording a new video teaser, complete with a bit of the first single ‘You’re a Lie.’
They spent most of the ’90s and early aughts recording sporadically as Heart, but Ann and Nancy Wilson appear to be making up for lost time: 2012 will bring plenty of live dates, a new box set, a memoir of their time in the rock ‘n’ roll trenches, and — most exciting of all for longtime fans — an album of new material.
