Matt Sorum Stands Up For Whitney Houston, Criticizes Media For Their Behavior Since Her Death

Velvet Revolver and Guns N’ Roses fans know Matt Sorum is one hard-hitting drummer.

Lately, though, it’s his words — not his stick work — that have packed a mighty punch, as Sorum has taken the media to task for the way it has dealt with the death of pop star Whitney Houston.

Rolling Stones Jagger & Richards Remember Stage Crasher from ’81 Concert

When you’ve toured as much as the Rolling Stones, it can be really hard to differentiate one show from another. But the band’s gig on Dec. 18, 1981, in Hampton, Virginia — now available as ‘Hampton Coliseum (Live 1981),’ the second official Stones concert bootleg — was certainly memorable for Keith Richards and Mick Jagger.

Ex-Judas Priest Singer Says Band Could’ve Sounded Like AC/DC If He Stuck Around

Before Rob Halford became Judas Priest‘s frontman, Al Atkins held the position in the band’s prefame years. And even though Atkins didn’t sing a note on Priest’s first two albums, 1974′s ‘Rocka Rolla’ and 1976′s ‘Sad Wings of Destiny,’ he made his presence felt as a co-writer of ‘Victim of Changes,’ among other songs.

Had Atkins remained a member of Priest, surely the course of the band’s history — and heavy metal in general — would have been altered. The same can probably be said of the Priest sound, he tells The Examiner.

Former Genesis Guitarist Steve Hackett Witnessed Led Zeppelin’s 2007 Reunion Show – As a Roadie

Maybe security didn’t recognize him as someone who had played with one of British rock’s most successful bands. Or maybe a clipboard-holding gatekeeper stopped him cold at the entrance and said in a monotone voice, “Sorry, you’re not on the list.”

Whatever the reason, ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett resorted to an everyman move in December 2007 so he could enter London’s O2 Arena for a special event highlighted by a one-off Led Zeppelin reunion. Hackett served as a roadie — but not for original Zeppelin members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page or John Paul Jones, or for substitute drummer Jason Bonham.

Slash Announces Release Date for ‘Much More Cohesive’ Second Solo Album

A year ago, Slash was in Texas rocking out with pop stars the Black Eyed Peas and Usher as part of the Super Bowl XLV halftime show.

This past weekend, he was a good 2,000-plus miles away from Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis — and for good reason. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist was in Los Angeles wrapping up his second solo studio album, which is slated for a May 22 release on Slash’s own Dik Hayd International imprint.

Jason Becker Documentary Schedules World Premiere

At the start of the 1990s, young guitarist Jason Becker was riding high, having joined forces with ex-Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth to record what would become Roth’s third full-length solo album, 1991′s ‘A Little Ain’t Enough.’

But around the same time, Becker was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Now paralyzed and unable to speak or play guitar, Becker still continues to make new music. His incredible story has been captured in the new documentary ‘Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet,’ which will make its world premiere March 3 in San Jose, California.

Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir Guitars Are Part of a New Grateful Dead Exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

When Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh first sang the memorable ‘Truckin’ lyric “What a long, strange trip it’s been,” the Grateful Dead had only been together for about five years. Of course, the Dead’s rich musical journey continued for another 25 years, effectively ending with Garcia’s death on Aug. 9, 1995.

This spring, Deadheads can look back on the band’s storied career in a new exhibit called ‘Grateful Dead: The Long, Strange Trip,’ which opens to the public April 12 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

George Harrison Guitar iPad App on the Way

Throughout his career, George Harrison played a variety of guitars, among them a psychedelic-looking Fender Stratocaster, a “fireglo” Rickenbacker 360 12-string and a black Gretsch Duo Jet (which he considered to be his first real decent guitar).

Dr. John Taps Black Keys Frontman Dan Auerbach to Produce His New Album

Two years ago, Leon Russell received some long overdue attention when he teamed up with Elton John for the album ‘The Union.’ Singer/pianist Dr. John is deserving of the same type of lovin’ from the masses, and Dan Auerbach of the red-hot duo the Black Keys is doing his part by producing the New Orleans legend’s new studio album, ‘Locked Down.’
