According to Peter Mensch, Jimmy Page’s manager, the Led Zeppelin guitarist is apparently hard at work at remastering the band’s entire catalog. According to Blabbermouth, tentative plans are to release the albums next year sometime, potentially with alternate takes/unreleased mixes as well. More details from Blabbermouth: Page recently told Mojo magazine that there are plans to release each ZEPPELIN studio album as a box set with additional material from each LP. In addition, it was revealed in an article in The Australian that artist Shepard Fairey has been tapped to re-design the artwork for the upcoming reissues. UPDATE – Page has revealed a bit more of his plans, as…

Mumford & Sons KISS Neil Young & Crazy Horse Gary Clark Jr. Muse Dinosaur Jr. Aimee Mann Mumford & Sons Babel When U2 made the Rattle and Hum album and movie in 1988, they mistakenly thought that it was their duty to introduce the world to American music. They wrote songs about John Coltrane and Billie Holiday and played with B.B. King, with the smugness, condescension, and earnestness of spoiled rich kids showing off family photos taken on vacation to places where we’ve all already been. Babel, Mumford & Sons’ second album, presents a collection of songs that are…

A few months back, R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck released a solo song titled 10 Million B.C., from an as-yet-unannounced solo album. Today, Buck revealed the plans for the album – it’s being released tomorrow on Mississippi Records. Oh, it’ll also be available on vinyl via a limited, 2000-copy pressing. Said Buck in the message on R.E.M.’s website: As for the future I may do some performances, but this is not a career, it is something I am doing for fun. The album doesn’t have a title yet, so perhaps we’ll just be surprised tomorrow when it is released.

Yes it’s that time of year again.  The beer.  The hot and greasy wings.  The hot and greasy tailgating.  And, oh yes, that little bit of pigskin insanity called football. Let’s face it guys and girls, there’s nothing better for getting adrenaline pumping (other than perhaps replacement referees) than some “Gridiron Tunes!” And no, we’re not talking those overplayed – albeit very good – sport-anthems by Gary Glitter (Rock and Roll Part II), AC/DC (Hell’s Bells and TNT), Queen (Champions/We Will Rock You), and Ozzy Osbourne (Crazy Train) that precede every kick-off and touchdown.  We’re talking real football songs -…

[Editor’s Note: Our Every Picture Tells a Story column is normally made up of lots of pretty pictures with very little text.  Once in a while we like to talk to the people who make these pretty pictures. Rock Cellar Magazine roving reporter Ed Rampell caught up with celebrated photographer Albert Watson at his latest exhibit in St. Moritz, Switzerland where he was participating in the 5th annual St. Moritz Art Masters, an international art and culture summit.  A centerpiece of the summit is the “Walk of Art,” consisting of 30 exhibitions at various hotel, church and other venues scattered…

  Electric Light Orchestra co-founder/mastermind Jeff Lynne will release two new albums on October 9th. First up: Long Wave, a collection of old standards that influenced him as a musician. From the press release: These songs take me back to that feeling of freedom in those days and summon up the feeling of first hearing those powerful waves of music coming in on my old crystal set. That same day, Lynne will also release Mr. Blue Sky – The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra, a compilation of familiar ELO classics re-recorded by Lynne. Also from the release: When I listen to the…

Bob Dylan Ben Folds Five No Doubt Green Day Dave Matthews Band Bob Mould Propagandhi Grizzly Bear Bob Dylan Tempest It’s 2012, and we’re still living on “Desolation Row.” Or so Bob Dylan argues on his 35th album, Tempest, a firestorm of a record that plays like the apocalyptic cry of an old, gravelly-voiced prophet wandering a desert of broken relationships and lost political hopes. Opener Duquesne Whistle, a country-flavored tune, is really just a tease.  Its breezy, fun feel makes you think Dylan may simply be rehashing 2009’s lively but light Together Through Life.  But at its center beats…

RECAP: OUTSIDE LANDS MUSIC FESTIVAL DAY 2 & 3 (Text and photos by Adrian Garro/Rock Cellar Magazine) The final two days of the Outside Lands Music & Art Festival were just as good, if not better, than the already-great first day. Here are our highlights from Saturday and Sunday’s festivities. Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons Kicking things of on the Sutro stage were Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons, whose blues-inspired folk-rock sound was the perfect introduction to the day. Songs like Tennessee and Born Again (from their 2009 album Death Won’t Send a Letter) were earnest and affecting,…
