Few bands have owed a greater debt to the Rolling Stones than Aerosmith. From the bluesy, riff-based rock to the dynamic between Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, they were originally seen by some as little more than Stones rip-offs. But on last week’s episode of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ Mick Jagger turned the tables by doing an impression of Tyler.
In September 2009 a handful of famous British rock musicians, including Robert Plant, performed a concert at London’s O2 Arena as a benefit for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Foundation. A DVD of highlights of the show, which was called “Rockwell,” will be released on June 19 by MVD.
In addition to being known as a brilliant singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Paul McCartney‘s reputation as an all-around nice guy has been well-earned through the years. If he was less modest, he’d also be able to add the word “hero” to his CV, as it was recently revealed that, many years ago, he saved future producer Mark Ronson from drowning in Long Island Sound.
New York Yankees fans are notoriously unwelcome in Boston, and even less so in the not-so-friendly confines of Fenway Park. However, Red Sox fans will turn their boos to shouts of “BRUCE!” when famous Yankees fan Bruce Springsteen rocks the 100-year old stadium on Aug. 14.
A rare leather jacket from Motley Crue‘s ‘Dr, Feelgood’ tour has sold for $850 on eBay. While that may seem like a steep price, it’s possible that the jacket, sized women’s extra small, has a connection to the band.
Neil Young has just released the second song and video from his ‘Americana‘ album, which will be released June 5. As has been widely reported, the album reunites him with longtime co-conspirators Crazy Horse as they put their unique sound on classic American folk tunes. Here, Young and his pals take on ‘She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain,’ which is renamed ‘Jesus’ Chariot’ on the album.
A poster of one of the oddities in the Bruce Springsteen‘s pre-fame career recently sold for $650 on eBay. The poster is for the “Ernie the Chickin’ Festival” at Newark State College in Union, N.J. on May 15, 1971. Music was performed by several local acts including the oddly named “Dr. Zoom and the Sonic Boom with Bruce Springsteen.”
It has been nearly 50 years since Steve Winwood burst onto the music scene as a member of the Spencer Davis Group in 1965. In that time the 16-year old British kid who could sing and play keyboards like Ray Charles has evolved musically through stints with Traffic, Blind Faith and his own very successful solo career.
Donald “Duck” Dunn, who played on hundreds of rock and soul classics as the bassist for Booker T. and the MGs, and later as a session player, passed away Sunday morning at the age of 70. Steve Cropper, the MGs guitarist, broke the news on his Facebook page at approximately 12:30AM Eastern time.
The sprawling double album is a dangerous undertaking in rock because the possibility for overload is too great. Even the biggest fans of, say, the Beatles or Bruce Springsteen will admit that ‘The Beatles’ or ‘The River’ could have been better as a single album with the fat trimmed. However, the Rolling Stones‘ ‘Exile on Main Street,’ which was released 40 years ago today, not only doesn’t suffer from a lack of filler, but it’s length is actually one of its selling points.
A rare poster for Led Zeppelin‘s 1971 tour of Japan has sold for $2,200 on eBay. The poster advertises the tour’s first two dates, at Tokyo’s Budokan Hall on Sept. 23 and 24. Led Zeppelin played three other shows in Japan: Hiroshima on Sept. 27 and Osaka on Sept. 28 and 29. Ticket prices for the shows ranged from 1,500 to 2,700 Yen, which corresponds to $18.80 to $33.85 in 2012 dollars.
