Eric Clapton, ‘Gotta Get Over’ – Song Review

Middle school-grade album art and a terrible album title luckily seem to say nothing about the music on 'Old Sock,' Eric Clapton's upcoming studio release.

Corey Taylor, Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen, Scott Reeder, ‘From Can to Can’t’ – Song Review

More sounds from the upcoming 'Sound City Reel to Reel' album have been released. Rocker and film director Dave Grohl has teamed with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick and bassist Scott Reeder to create 'From Can to Can't,' a soaring rock ballad that will transcend one back to 2002 when everything on the radio was thick with heartache power chords and thin on melody.

Heart, ‘Stairway to Heaven’ – Song Review

Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart chose the iconic Led Zeppelin song 'Stairway to Heaven' to play for the legends at the Kennedy Center Honors late last year. The performance stirred up emotions deep within Robert Plant and brought the entire audience to their feet. A well-rehearsed, talented gospel choir covers any flaws in the Hall of Fame nominees' performance.

Natalie Maines, ‘Mother’ (Pink Floyd Cover) – Song Review

Natalie Maines is supporting the West Memphis Three with a cover of Pink Floyd's 'Mother' for 'West of Memphis: Voices For Justice,' a benefit album for Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley Jr. and Jason Baldwin, whose story is told in the 2012 'West of Memphis' documentary. The longtime Dixie Chicks singer's performance only hints at her country pedigree, and leaves behind much of the bravado she's known for. It's a humble, passionate cover.

Aerosmith, ‘Can’t Stop Lovin’ You’ – Song Review

Red flags were raised when it was learned that one of the songs on Aerosmith's new record, 'Music from Another Dimension,' was a duet with country superstar Carrie Underwood. The very thought of it seemed more manufactured by the folks at 'American Idol,' which Underwood won in 2005 and Steven Tyler was a judge for two seasons, than a mutual ad

David Bowie, ‘Where Are We Now?’ – Song Review

It’s not surprising that David Bowie is in a contemplative mood on ‘Where Are We Now?’ the first single from 'The Next Day,' his first album in nearly a decade.

Jimi Hendrix, ‘Somewhere’ – Song Review

Jimi Hendrix is one of the most exhaustively chronicled musicians in rock music history. Though he released just three studio albums in his lifetime, he has been the subject of a seemingly inexhaustible series of mostly-exploitative posthumous releases.

On March 5, Experience Hendrix hopes to rectify some of that with the release of 'People, Hell & Angels,' and now you can get your first listen to a track from that collection titled 'Somewhere.'

Bon Jovi, ‘Because We Can’ – Song Review

The lead single from Bon Jovi's upcoming 'What About Now' album is as pop-friendly as anything the group has released. Bright production and a message of inspiration turn 'Because We Can' into a song mainstream radio may embrace like the latest 'American Idol' contestant. Fans of more authentic, grit-songs will need to keep digging.

The Beatles, ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ – Film Review

Going into the last quarter of 1967, the Beatles couldn’t get any bigger. Their masterwork, ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,’ pretty much changed the way pop music was made, sounded and consumed. They had transcended the rock ‘n’ roll ghetto, entering the final phase of a career that glided past pop music’s boundaries and into a wide-open realm of exploration and experimentation.

‘Django Unchained’ Review

His name is Django and as he's quick to point out, the D is silent. It's just about the only quiet part of Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained,' a boisterous, bloody blaxploitation/Western hybrid. What else would you expect from Tarantino, the modern master of genre pastiche, flavorful dialogue, and grossly exaggerated violence? Whatever 'Django''s issues -- and it has a couple -- failing to deliver on its promises isn't one of them. If anything, the issue is the exact opposite.

The Monkees Deliver Rock ‘n’ Roll, Nostalgia and Plenty of Smiles in Cleveland – Concert Review

At their triumphant show at the Lakewood Civic Auditorium on Nov. 17, the Monkees were indeed 'too busy singing to put anybody down' as their nearly 30-song set proved. Nostalgia is a crazy creature. It taunts and teases as it pulls a tear, and tries its best to give you that warm all over glow. It can be both good and bad. Thankfully in the hands of the Monkees, it was all good. This was a show custom made for the diehard fans, nothing less and certainly a lot more.

Will Disney Buy Hostess?

Since the news of Hostess going bankrupt is shattering snack fiends around the country, it brought up this thought. Hostess is going bankrupt, but the products probably won't go anywhere since the brands are so strong. More than likely, they'll auction them off to another company. But who will step up to buy them?
