The Who at Staples Center; Los Angeles When Pete Townshend said the din of his amplifiers in 1964 was emulating that of a WWII bomber plane, he wasn’t kidding. Anyone can play the guitar like a buzz saw. Not everyone can shower you in shrapnel or cause puncture wounds with the sound of searing steel. It’s 2013. Townshend is nearly 68 years old. But this was his original manifesto: to reflect in music and words the new-found freedoms and challenges of post-war England; to reflect back at The Who’s followers their own struggles and desires. 1973’s Quadrophenia may have been written specific…

Is it in their DNA? Possibly a “creative genius” gene that science has yet to discover? Or is it an otherwordly gift – one that is physically untraceable? Perhaps it’s just an excellent work ethic. How best do we explain these iconic songwriter/musicians who seem to have enough talent left over to create masterful work in an entirely different medium? Apparently there is something tying the audio and visual arts together – a place in the universe where sight and sound inspirations collide. In celebration of this mystery, Rock Cellar Magazine presents our 3rd photo essay in a series: 7…

Almost 50 years since the company passed on signing a young band named The Beatles, Decca Records announced the signing of Paul McCartney to its roster. Sir Paul is teaming up with Decca to release the soundtrack album to his upcoming ballet, entitled “Ocean’s Kingdom”. The production will start in New York on September 22nd, with the soundtrack being released by Decca in the UK on October 3rd. Assuming the ballet does well, it is presumably safe to assume it will expand to more theaters and locations in the months to come.

Cigarette popularity has been declining for years in the U.S. and the machines have been removed and outlawed just the same, but now that smoking has been deemed socially unacceptable throughout the world the question remains: What will happen to all those cool vending machines? Clark Whittington, an artist from North Carolina, may have the answer. It started in 1997, when Whittington had the idea to use one of the recently banned machines in his upcoming art show. He refurbished the machine, calling it the Art*o*mat, and filled it with twelve of his paintings and photographs, which dispensed for $1.00…

This past weekend, thousands of mud-soaked concertgoers flocked to the town of Somerset, England for this year’s Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. The fest featured a slew of international bands of varying genres, including headliners U2, Beyonce, Coldplay and Morrissey, with surprise sets delivered by Radiohead and Pulp causing attendees (and the Internet) much excitement. I haven’t personally been able to go to Glastonbury in my life, mainly because it is held in England and the US dollar is little more than play money over there. Glastonbury is arguably bigger than Southern California’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,…

The harpsichord was the Humphrey Bogart of baroque instruments, until 18th century innovation produced the piano and brought its near-death. It lay dormant in basements and opera halls, until the 20th century when its tone bashfully attempted to fill in empty spaces in pop, vocal, and jazz tracks. When the dark and melodramatic step-sister of sunshine pop was born – “baroque pop” – the harpsichord made a comeback becoming the melancholy whine of the ’60s. Entire groups were spawned from this movement creating a full=blown epidemic of chamber rock bands. Oboes, French horns, stringed instruments and yes – harpsichords filled…
