And while Prowse doesn’t possess any telekinetic abilities (that we know of), he’s using his hands these days to sign thousands of autographs for Star Wars fans at sci-fi conventions around the world. In the weeks ahead, Prowse will be appearing at comic conventions in London, Birmingham, Dallas and Detroit, before headlining the huge Star Wars Weekend IV in Taastrup, Denmark. Standing at an imposing six-foot-seven, the former bodybuilder…

Paying homage to ’60s-era bands like The Beach Boys, and The Mamas and the Papas, Susanna Hoffs has recently released her third solo album, Someday – her first release in 16 years. The album was inspired by my yearning to sing songs that were as melodic and emotional as my favorite music of the 1960s. Produced by Mitchell Froom (The Bangles, Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Pearl Jam, Indigo Girls, Los Lobos), the album features 10 new songs written or co-written by Hoffs, who plans to tour this fall. With their catchy, bright melodies, Beatles-esque hooks and jangling guitar riffs, Hoff’s band The…

In his new book DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans, Jesse Ventura argues in favor of abolishing all political parties within what he calls a corrupt two-party system. From my perspective, I can’t advocate anymore for third-party politics.  We’ve got to face the reality that the two parties control the system to such an extent that, to be viable, a third party would have to sell out and become just as bad. Ventura asserts that corporations have bought the American electoral and legislative process through the power of lobbyists, campaign contributions and political action committees. As the book jacket blurb advertises: Ventura “exposes how…

Photo ©Mark Walton With a little help from his friends, Ringo Starr cranked up the 13th-edition All-Starr Band last week in Niagara Falls, gassed it up, and is taking it on the road… The sumptuous 2012 model All-Starr Band includes “newcomers” Steve Lukather (Toto) and Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey) alongside veterans Todd Rundgren, Richard Page, Mark Rivera and Gregg Bissonette.

Hailed as the undisputed queens of ’60s-inspired garage rock, The Bangles are back. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of their eponymous first EP this month, the Los Angeles-based trio will be performing at the U.S.A. Festival in Allen, Texas on June 30. With their catchy, bright melodies, Beatles-esque hooks and jangling guitar riffs, The Bangles topped ’80s charts with hits like Manic Monday, Walk Like an Egyptian and Eternal Flame, selling millions of albums worldwide. “Within two hours, Debbi, Susanna and I started a band, the three of us – and we still are a band,” says Bangles’…

Reggae-influenced Aussie rock band Men at Work made headlines again just last month, although not for reasons they would have wanted:  Original member Greg Ham – best known for playing the fluttering flute riff in the band’s hit Down Under – was found dead in his Australian home. Men at Work frontman Colin Hay said of his late bandmate: “We played in a band and conquered the world together. I love him very much. The saxophone solo on Who Can it Be Now? was the rehearsal take. We kept it, that was the one.  He’s here forever. ” Just days before…
