In 1985, rock and roll writer Steve Rosen headed to Sunset Boulevard to interview Tom Petty. Southern Accents, Petty’s sixth album with the Heartbreakers, had recently been released and Petty was doing press for the record.

Along with the playlist, Paul McCartney sent this message along as well: Hello, spring! Along with the season, this has been a month of changes for many of us around the world.…

Rarely has the concept of streaming media been more relevant to our society than right now. With millions of people the world over confined to their homes as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and global restrictions put in place regarding pretty much everything outside the home, we look to streaming services for entertainment — and The Doors fans are in luck, because at least four marquee productions about the band are currently available via Amazon Prime. The legendary band’s social media channels passed the information along on Monday: https://twitter.com/TheDoors/status/1244720059035144193 When You’re Strange is a 2009 documentary focusing on the…

This past weekend brought the news that country/folk legend John Prine was in critical condition in the hospital after displaying symptoms of COVID-19, a development that came after his wife, Fiona Whelan Prine, tested positive for coronavirus herself. In an update on Monday, Fiona stated on her Twitter page that she has since recovered from the illness and that her husband is currently stable — which is definitely better news than the previous update: https://twitter.com/FionaPrine/status/1244655527554138115 News of John Prine and his hospitalization prompted an outpouring of support and well-wishes from the music community, and inspired fellow folk icon Joan Baez…

Our new reality is one of separation and self-isolation, measures put in place in order to (hopefully) curb the spread of COVID-19 during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — but that won’t keep Joan Jett & the Blackhearts from rocking. On Monday, the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ensemble performed the song “Light of Day” on MSNBC’s Morning Joe … but did so remotely, with all four musicians — Jett, Dougle Needles, Hal Selzer and Michael McDermott — contributing his or her part via livestream from the safety of home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utQItLe9ijY “Light of Day” is taken from the 1987…

This past weekend brought with it the concerning news that country/folk legend John Prine is currently in critical condition after being hospitalized last Thursday after showing signs of COVID-19 — which his wife, Fiona Whelan Prine, had tested positive for earlier in the month. On Sunday, fellow folk icon Joan Baez released a video dedicated to John and Fiona Prine, a gentle, acoustic rendition of her song “Hello In There”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJPvc5vvKY4 “Hello in There” is a song from Baez’s 1975 album Diamonds & Rust, and, as Joan Baez explains in the video, has been “one of the most-requested songs in…

When the going gets tough, the tough records a new song via mobile devices while self-isolating from each other. That’s the mantra of Sammy Hagar & the Circle, as the Red Rocker and his rock and roll colleagues debuted a new song over the weekend. Titled “Funky Feng Shui,” the undeniably groovy guitar-based hard-rock anthem came about while the band members — Hagar, bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Vic Johnson —  were staying apart due to the coronavirus pandemic, recording themselves playing the song at their respective homes or home studios, editing it all together and presenting…
