Posted by on February 1, 2017

What good is Phil Rudd’s opinion these days? Well, as the longtime drummer of AC/DC, it certainly mattered for the 29 years he was in the band.

Top 8 highest paid rock and metal musicians

Posted by on September 30, 2016

The metal dream of every rock and metal musician is to make it big enough and get an actual income out of their music.

Who would’ve thought that someone that was notoriously reclusive and eccentric for much of the ’90s and early 2000s would not […]

Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC get their own Garbage Pail Kids

Posted by on August 31, 2016

Judging from musical trends, everything is cyclical. Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids trading cards are another example of this. Originally launched in 1985 to capitalize on the then-dominant Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, the series were pretty much a parody of the popular dolls, which led the creator to sue Topps. There have been several different runs of […]

Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Not in This Lifetime’ tour seems to be going amazingly well by all accounts. Most of those accounts are focused on comparing the shows to the Guns N’ Roses of the past – the band taking the stage hours late, fat Axl, etc. None of those things are happening this time out, […]
