It couldn’t have been easy being Triumph. The virtuosic Canadian hard rock power trio spent their entire career in the shadow of virtuosic Canadian hard rock power trio Rush.

Don’t let the title of one of his biggest hits fool you. Alice Cooper really is Mr. Nice Guy. In a video clip made for FuseTV, he took some time out of his busy golfing (and touring) schedule to dole out “rockstar advice” for fans who submitted questions on a variety of topics.
Shooting of the upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic, ‘All is by My Side,’ is currently underway, with Dublin filling in for London in the mid-1960s. The film, which stars Andre Benjamin, aka Andre 3000 from the hip-hop group Outkast, as the guitar hero.
Neil Peart of Rush is not only one of rock’s most unique lyricists, but his verbal dexterity translates to prose, as well. Since 1996, he has written five books detailing his travels, both on tour and his personal journeys. An autographed copy of his most recent book, 2011′s ‘Far and Away: A Prize Every Time,’ recently sold for $187.00 on eBay.

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora will release his third solo album, ‘Aftermath of the Lowdown’ on September 4, Brave Words reported today (June 24). The album will be on indie label Dangerbird Records, with whom he signed back in May.
It’s rare that musicians are around to celebrate their 100th birthday with the rigors of a concert tour. Elvis Costello, who was born in 1954, is fully aware of this and has announced six solo concerts in California for this fall that he is calling “2054 – The Centenary Show.”
Television appearances by Tom Waits are few and far between. That’s why we were upset back in April when the publicity-shy songwriter postponed his slots on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ and ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ for unspecified reasons. However, Waits has announced that the dates have been rescheduled.
Kiss have given a few more details about their upcoming album, ‘Monster.’ The first single is ‘Hell or Hallelujah’ and will be released July 2. The artwork, which features the four band members in full Kiss makeup and a silver version of the Kiss logo, is seen to the left.
