Having helmed the excellent 2010 Lennon NYC documentary (stylized LennoNYC), director Michael Epstein’s next immersion into the world, life, times and legacy of John Lennon was chronicling John’s rich creative adventures recording 1971’s Imagine album. The resulting documentary, 2018’s Above Us Only Sky, lends a heretofore unseen window into the creative process, offering expansive and revelatory footage of the session themselves at Ascot Studios and John and Yoko’s activities away from the studio during that period of time. Above Us Only Sky is now available on Blu-ray or DVD. We spoke to Epstein, who shared the back story behind the…

The Who accomplished a great deal in their heyday, but judged against fellow ‘60s contemporaries The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks, the group’s recorded output body of work is relatively small. But what they lack in sheer quantity is made up by a strong, must-listen collection of classic albums; witness the pop art swagger of The Who Sell Out, groundbreaking pop-operas Tommy and Quadrophenia and the introspective angst of Who By Numbers to find a band truly in its element. Simply titled WHO, the band’s first new record in 13 years, is available now. It’s a thrilling, spirited snapshot…

More than a half a century since its original release, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society album is lauded as a landmark moment in rock and roll history and is lauded as one of the group’s signature classics. Yet its worthy follow-up album, 1969’s Arthur (Or The Decline and Fall Of The British Empire) has wrongly failed to earn the same gushing accolades. Now that’s about to change, with a 50th anniversary 4-CD deluxe box culling 81 tracks, including a newly remastered version of the original album having been released in late October. In addition to the above,…

Recently, Jesse Colin Young paid a visit to RockCellarTV studios for a special one-on-one video interview and performance session.

A faithful member of Elvis Presley’s retinue of close friends known as “The Memphis Mafia,” Marty Lacker was one of The King’s trusted friends and was instrumental in arranging Elvis’ seminal recording sessions at American Studios with producer Chips Moman in January and February of 1969. We spoke to Lacker a few years back before his passing in February of 2017. During that exclusive conversation, he shared the genesis behind those historic sessions, which yielded the hits, “Suspicious Minds,” “In The Ghetto,” “Don’t Cry Daddy,” and “Kentucky Rain,” and marked an artistic rebirth for Presley’s career. Marty Lacker: I quit…

Being a member of the Foo Fighters, one of the world’s biggest rock bands, helps swing open some pretty wide doors. When he’s not recording and touring the globe, shredding on lead guitar alongside Dave Grohl and the Foos, Chris Shiflett forges a solo career and most importantly, is able to do it on his own terms, following his muse wherever it leads and not having to kowtow to commercial restraints/expectations. Hard Lessons, Shiflett’s new solo album rooted in a fiery hybrid of rock and country twang, rings true with the voice of a shining talent. Rock Cellar: Given your new…

Powerhouse drummer Zak Starkey has sat behind the kit with The Who for many years, his exciting percussive style uncannily summoning up the spirit of the band’s legendary drummer Keith Moon. Having recently wrapped the first leg of a North American jaunt, the band will be back in the States in the fall continuing their new tour featuring The Who augmented by an orchestra. Away from his work in The Who, Zak, a devoted reggae fan since he was child, has launched a new label, Trojan Jamaica, with partner Sharna “Sshh” Liguz. Calling from Jamaica, the spiritual home of reggae…
