This is a story about Dave Grohl and Prince, told as only Grohl could — via his new storytelling Instagram page, @DavesTrueStories, with a tale about the Purple One himself, Prince. Anybody who knows Dave Grohl knows the man is an unabashed fan of the late Prince Rogers Nelson — the Foo Fighters covered “Darling Nikki” in the early 2000s, a recording that still gets airplay on Los Angeles rock radio station KROQ 106.7 despite not being an “official” single. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3tdKEdrCUQ For Grohl’s latest short story, he zeroes in on his adventures with Prince — but in a manner that…

Last week, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day announced his new “No Fun Mondays” series, in which he planned to upload one cover song each week during the coronavirus pandemic, “until we’re let back out into the world.” This week’s entry is a rendition of the classic Bangles track “Manic Monday,” which he recorded with the aid of Susanna Hoffs herself — filmed remotely, of course, so as to maintain the rules of social distancing. The end result is a delightful little cover featuring Armstrong his trusty canine companion and Hoffs in split-screen action, turning in a great performance of…

Today’s date, April 5, is a notorious one in the world of rock and roll, as it’s the date commemorating the passing of two of the most iconic and celebrated singers of all time, Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley. On April 5, 1994, Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain took his own life in Seattle. Eight years later, on April 5, 2002, Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley passed away after an overdose on cocaine and heroin — also dying in Seattle. Both Cobain and Staley were known for pained lyrics expressing the deepest and most intense of emotions, stemming from…

Grey Daze is the band Chester Bennington was in prior to joining Linkin Park and becoming a global phenomenon in the late 1990s. On June 26, the band will release an album titled Amends, featuring vocal tracks from the late singer matched with new recordings of the band’s earlier material. Featuring newly recorded music and remastered vocals from Bennington, the project is going to be something of an exercise in catharsis for both Bennington’s former band mates — Sean Dowdall (drums), Mace Beyers (bass) and Cristin Davis (guitar) — and Linkin Park fans still reeling from Bennington’s sudden passing in…

Manchester-based rock/pop band The 1975 was planning to release a new album this spring, but Notes on a Conditional Form has since been pushed back twice due to the coronavirus pandemic. The record is now scheduled to come out on May 22, barring any additional delays. As a means of keeping fans entertained despite the delay (and as an escape from the confusing reality of our current situation), the 1975 premiered a new song on Friday. Titled “Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America,” it’s a tender acoustic ballad featuring a guest appearance from Phoebe Bridgers, who lends her voice to…

When we first heard from Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum, the experimental/indie project featuring actor Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under), Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers) and Matt Katz-Bohen (Blondie, Cyndi Lauper), it was in the form of this provocative music video for a track called “Ketamine”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waylMzCaznE Today, April 2, the group releases its debut EP, a six-song, 20-minute affair that challenges what you might be expecting to hear when you decide to give it a listen. https://www.instagram.com/p/B-fDoHmDJvf/ More than just “a band starring an actor,” Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum is an eclectic, inspired effort from…

The Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival is a cultural phenomenon. Everybody knows about it. It doesn’t matter if you’ve gone every year since 1999 or have never gone — and might never go, if that’s your perspective. The point is, you know what it is. It’s an institution. Coachella’s promoter, Goldenvoice, had to reschedule this year’s Coachella festivals, from April 10-12 and 17-19 to October due to the coronavirus pandemic, part of the overwhelming upheaval of everything we’ve come to know as “normal” in these confusing times. https://www.instagram.com/p/B-Z94c_nW-i/ In the absence of Coachella these two upcoming weekends in April,…

Back on February 14, which feels like it was a year and a half ago given what’s happened to the world in the age of the coronavirus pandemic, Tame Impala released The Slow Rush. A trippy adventure through modern psychedelia helmed by band leader/mastermind Kevin Parker, the album was an exhilarating and all-encompassing listen … and Parker has now unleashed a new version of the record for all to hear. Writing on Instagram that, “I made something for all you isolators out there,” Parker and Tame Impala debuted The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place this week. https://www.instagram.com/p/B-YXjWxn4HO/ While the…

If you aren’t well-versed in the entire catalog of “Weird Al” Yankovic, you’re missing out on some real, hardcore entertainment. His classic albums find the musician/comedian trying all sorts of things beyond the obvious covers of pop/rock classics of their day, with his ‘original songs’ quite often being style parodies themselves. Nestled on Yankovic’s third album, 1985’s Dare to Be Stupid, is the track “One More Minute.” A breakup song with an edge, it’s a delightfully twisted little song that seems somewhat relevant given the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing that we’re currently dealing with. Fully aware of this, “Weird…

It’s not much of a surprise that Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day has felt especially creative recently, during the coronavirus pandemic. In normal circumstances, the singer/guitarist keeps himself pretty busy, whether with his “day job” or his various side projects. But with self-isolation and social distancing measures in place as we all try to curb the spread of COVID-19, he’s been motivated to start a new covers series, releasing cover songs of pretty much whatever he wants. This began last week when Armstrong recorded a solo cover of Tommy James & the Shondells’ classic “I Think We’re Alone Now,”…
