35 Years Ago: Ramones Release ‘Rocket to Russia’

Released thirty-five years ago, 'Rocket to Russia' was to have been the Ramones big breakthrough -- the album to put them on the radio, in the charts and in the hearts of rock and rollers everywhere! As we all know ... that never happened. Despite the random attempts over the years to re-write rock and roll history via 'rockumentaries,' the truth is, most of America couldn't have cared less about the Ramones. 1977 was all about Kiss, Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, and so on.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse Crank It Up in Cleveland – Concert Review

Neil Young is timeless, end of story. His age is irrelevant (he turns 67 next month), and the fact that he has not had a 'hit' record in years is of no issue whatsoever. Young, and his longtime band, the ever durable Crazy Horse, are the real deal ... always have been. And last night's performance at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio proved that.
