Back in 1978, Foreigner broke through in a big way with the tremendous commercial success of their debut album, which spawned the monster hits “Feels Like The First Time” and “Cold As Ice.” This Anglo-American outfit were a permanent staple on FM radio and their explosive live performances solidified their status as formidable hard rock practitioners in the mold of Free, Humble Pie and Bad Company. The newly released Foreigner: Live At the Rainbow ‘78 (pick up a copy here) charts a band at the peak of their live prowess on the concert stage. We spoke with the band’s legendary…

She wasn’t a songwriter per se, but Linda Ronstadt, blessed with one of music’s most extraordinary voices, shone as a masterful stylist and interpreter, expertly navigating her way through a rich and diverse songbook. Today, sadly, Linda can no longer sing, a result of the ravages of Parkinson’s disease. Through the recent release of her first live album, Live in Hollywood, however, fans can revel in that beautiful and robust voice once more. The album finds Linda and a stellar band (featuring guitarists Danny Kortchmar and Kenny Edwards, drummer Russ Kunkel, pedal steel guitarist Dan Dugmore, bassist Bob Glaub, Little Feat keyboardist…

Graham Gouldman defines the word wunderkind. In the ‘60s, in his late teens, Graham established himself as an in demand songwriter, penning smash hits for The Yardbirds, The Hollies, Herman’s Hermits and countless others. Moving into the ‘70s, joining forces with Eric Stewart, Lol Creme and Kevin Godley, 10cc were born. They were the masters of clever thinking man’s pop, consummately written, arranged, produced and performed songs, sonic missives bursting with humor, pathos and invention. Stateside, they’re best known for the major chart hits, “I’m Not in Love” and “The Things We Do For Love.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgJckGsR-T0 After 10cc split, Graham…

Todd Rundgren (Photo: Jean Lannen) Todd Rundgren’s long awaited autobiography The Individualist bears a title apt for a musical iconoclast who has steered his 50 year career with stubborn independence and uncompromising artistic vision, battling the “Blue Meanies” of the music industry. His brilliant new book carves an illuminating window into the psyche of one of the most fearlessly creative and original musical forces the world’s ever seen, chronicling snapshots of his life with disarming candor and incisive reflection. A troubled childhood, musical adventures as a groundbreaking artist and producer, the use of psychedelics as a creative tool, personal relationship struggles…

(Ace Frehley photograph courtesy Jay Gilbert) In the ‘60s while growing up in the Bronx, budding teenage guitarist Paul “Ace” Frehley, had his share of formidable six-string heroes, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Pete Townshend. Decades later, as a founding member of KISS, a result of his fiery and inventive playing, Ace Frehley turned the tables and was not widely regarded as a pioneering and highly influential guitar hero whose mighty fretboard prowess is routinely cited a source of lifelong inspiration by the likes of Pearl Jan’s Stone Gossard, Lenny Kravitz, “Dimebag” Darrell and countless others.…

Combining an infectious collision of ‘60s pop, surf, dance and spiky new wave flavors, The B-52’s emerged on the music scene in the late ‘70s looking and sounding like no other band. More than 40 years since they formed, the band, led by founding members, lead vocalists Kate Pierson, Cindy Wilson and Fred Schneider, are still bringing the fun delighting concertgoers with their zany intergalactic brand of party rock. We spoke with Kate Pierson during a short break in the group’s headlining tour with Boy George and Culture Club. Rock Cellar: In a business that cannibalizes its artists, what’s the…

Pepper’s box set comes a deep dive into The White Album, with various configurations being made available of this seminal 1968 long player (3-CD, 2-LP and Super Deluxe box with 6 CDs, book and ephemera) featuring a newly remixed version of the album with…
