On May 8, Glenn Frey of the Eagles will release his first solo album since 1992.

Classic rock fans may not be getting the Guns N’ Roses reunion that they were hoping for at next month’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, but one long-disbanded group will be reuniting.

All the news in recent weeks about the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones – including an upcoming documentary, a tribute concert at Carnegie Hall and a book – has led us to research the origins of that legendary band.
