When Guns N’ Roses were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this month, some people weren’t terribly happy that Matt Sorum was included, saying that since he didn’t join GnR until 1990, he missed the mayhem of their early years and rise to fame with ‘Appetite for Destruction.’
Still, he seems to have experienced plenty of GnR madness — enough, in fact, that he says he’s considering writing a movie about it.
Today we bid farewell to Dick Clark, Rush drops their new single, Soundgarden offers a freebie and Eddie Van Halen’s pants are on fire.
Plus, Dire Straits and Paul McCartney get comfortable in our Top 100 Classic Rock Songs countdown, Robert Plant will (quietly) show off his new band, and Robbie Robertson comments on Levon Helm’s sad cancer fight.
In an open letter last week, Axl Rose made himself perfectly clear: he didn’t feel “wanted or respected” by his former Guns N’ Roses bandmates, so not only would he skip the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he didn’t want to be inducted at all.
A couple names you may recognize said the decision was a mistake, and the crowd on Saturday night made their feelings known as well.
Video of the two of them emerging together from the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, Calif. on Friday night has hit the interwebz, but even if you don’t care about their respective love lives (and really, who could blame you), what Axl said in that clip about GnR may still warrant your attention.
The first video from Bonnie Raitt‘s ‘Slipstream,’ her first new album in seven years, has hit the web. And it’s a remake of a track many classic rock lovers will recognize — Gerry Rafferty‘s 1978 hit, ‘Right Down the Line.’
If there were such a thing as a strip-clubology, Motley Crue singer Vince Neil would surely hold an advanced degree. Not only has he warmed a chair in thousands of such establishments all over the world, he’s opening his own Las Vegas club — and he’s released the first promo spot in advance of its grand opening on April 13.
Billy Joel hasn’t released a studio album of pop music for almost 20 years — but if you love his older songs and don’t already have one of the scores of greatest-hits compilations, you can do a little CD shopping next time you’re waiting for a latte at Starbucks.
The coffee giant has created its own disc called ‘Billy Joel: Opus Collection.’
