Foreigner and Styx To Release Album Together 

Posted on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments2 Comments
April 23, 2014 – Responsible for some of Rock’s most indelible summer anthems, legendary groups FOREIGNER and STYX will release THE SOUNDTRACK OF SUMMER on May 6 to coincide with their highly anticipated tour of the same name, which also features very special guest DON FELDER, former guitarist of The Eagles.  The album, which features 16 classics by both bands, will be available exclusively at Walmart. Pre-orders are available on Walmart’s website.
 
THE SOUNDTRACK OF SUMMER package includes FOREIGNER hits “Cold As Ice,” “Juke Box Hero” and “I Want To  Know What Love Is,” and STYX hits “The Grand Illusion,” “Blue Collar Man” and “Renegade” (see below for a complete track listing).  The collection finishes with the spectacular highlight, a brand new interpretation of one of Classic Rock’s most successful songs ever, “Hotel California.”  Original songwriter DON FELDER teamed up with STYX and FOREIGNER for this very special collaboration, as well as a stunning new version of FOREIGNER’s massive hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” which will only be available as a limited edition vinyl disc and on iTunes.
 
 
STYX is one of the most beloved rock bands on the planet, with more than 30 million records sold in North America alone.  Spawned from a Chicago basement in the early ‘70s, STYX would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads.  Over the course of their 38-year career they’ve released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top Ten singles.  Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd Sucherman have been together longer than any other lineup in the band’s 40-year existence.
 
With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, FOREIGNER is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems, FOREIGNER continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game, Foreigner is led by founding member Mick Jones (guitar), and Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums).
 
DON FELDER--former guitarist of the Eagles, New York Times best-selling author and four-time Grammy® Award winner—released his second solo album (and first since 1983), “Road To Forever” in October 9, 2012 and has been on tour throughout the U.S. ever since.  The album has recently been re-released with four additional songs, “Road To Forever: Extended Edition,” on March 4 via INGrooves Music Group.  The album’s latest single, “You Don’t Have Me,” is currently bulleted at #3 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart.  “Road To Forever” originally debuted on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” chart at #27.  "Girls In Black," the album’s first single, reached the Top 30 on the Mediabase Rock chart while the second single, “Wash Away,” co-written by FELDER and STYX’s Tommy Shaw and featuring Shaw’s signature vocal sound, quickly jumped to #4 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart.

'All My Friends Are Dead'

Posted on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments5 Comments
Sebastian Bach just released a video for his new single "All My Friends are Dead." The song is from Bach's new album Give 'Em Hell. Bach says his new work sounds just like classic Skid Row. I'm not sure I agree with that, but I dig the work nonetheless. Discuss.

Band Splits For M3 2014

Posted on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments14 Comments

I can't believe it, but M3 Rock Festival is this weekend. I won't be heading to Columbia, Maryland this year because I will finally be moving into my new house! If you're attending the fest, you probably want the band set times. Here they are:


Blast From The Past

Posted on Monday, April 21, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments18 Comments

Hands up, who remembers this? Columbia House memberships ya'll! I was at my parent's house over the weekend and I went through some of my old junk. Mixed in with the photos, school papers and whatnot was this little gem, valid through 6/93.

Who else still has a Columbia House card laying around?


Brian Johnson, Billy Joel Duet

Happy Easter!


This is cool: AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson joined Billy Joel for a duet of "You Shook Me All Night Long." Now, I've said before that "Shook" is my least favorite AC/DC track: I've heard it way too many times. Still, I think this duet is cool because it does show the crossover appeal of the song and AC/DC period. Have a great Sunday!


Watch Coachella Live This Weekend

If you're into the bands playing the Coachella Festival in California this weekend, you might click your remote over to AXS TV if you have cable. You'll be able to watch the festival all weekend long from the comfort of your own home.

Some of the bands playing include LORDE, Beck, Arcade Fire, MUSE, The Pixies, Queens of the Stone Age and tons more. Broken Bells are on the bill and I really love them a lot. Not Glam bands but there's lots of diverse music tastes among our community here, so I wanted to pass along.

Winger Release 'Tin Soldier' Video

Posted on Friday, April 18, 2014 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments8 Comments

This is pretty incredible. Winger just released a video for the song "Tin Soldier" off their upcoming album Better Days Comin.' The track doesn't sound like typical Winger -- it's very prog. I dig it.
