    The 9 Things You Do In Rock and Roll Heaven

    Like most American children, I was indoctrinated into the Christian tribe. In case you somehow aren't familiar with the mythology, one of the main ideas is that if you do what the book says, you'll go to a place called heaven. Now, the book doesn't lay it out very clearly, so my God-fearing mother ... More >>

    Nine Rock Classics You Love... That I Never Want to Hear Again

    A few weeks ago, in a little ditty called Five Signs That You Might Be a Music Junkie, I mentioned that I never deliberately listen to the same song more than once a day. That's right, no "play it again, Sam" for this geek. (Note: That quote is from Casablanca you little shit; if you didn't know ... More >>

    Black Sabbath: Music For the End of the World

I can think of several that stick out: Led Zeppelin vinyl, a miniature model of Dimebag Darrell's Razorback lightning bolt guitar, spike-bedecked high heels that would make a dominatrix envious, a stripper pole paired with a handle of whiskey.

    AC/DC Delivers The Hits at U.S. Airways Center

    You may be wondering: Can a shirtless guy in his mid-50s who dresses in purple velour shorts still rock like he did in 1979? I know I asked myself the same question before AC/DC took the stage Wednesday night at U.S. Airways Center. But now I'm done doubting my aging heroes. Like other dinosaurs I ... More >>

    A fake AC/DC and other bands we love that you’ll loathe

    By Clay McNear Why are tribute bands so maligned? By definition, they lack original thought, but most make up for it with suicide-bomber zeal. Not to mention pride of craftsmanship. As someone who used to play "Smoke on the Water" and "We're an American Band" in a shitty junior-high band, I can tel ... More >>

    Rockin’ Rides: AZ gets music theme park proposal, we get some baaad ideas

    Why is Disneyland in California? Call me an idiot (as some surely already do), but I’d venture to guess it’s because Disney studios were founded in Cali and the entire movie industry (Disney included) thrives in the Golden State. So it makes sense that a huge theme park based on Walt Disney’s ... More >>
