On September 24th, former Nirvana band members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl will join Nevermind producer Butch Vig for a Q&A session hosted by  host Jon Stewart. Sure to please fans of the seminal grunge band, the two-hour session, which will air live on SiriusXM Radio, will feature questions submitted by fans. The thought of hearing Grohl, Novoselic and Vig bounce questions off each other is an enticing concept, and the session is sure to be quite a memorable experience for fans. This event coincides with the 20th anniversary of Nevermind’s release on the same date, way back in 1991.…

SuperHeavy, Mick Jagger’s all-star supergroup featuring himself, Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart, composer A.R. Rahman, singer Joss Stone and reggae artist Damian Marley, will release their self-titled debut album on A&M Records on September 20th. Billed as a “rock supergroup”, the album is expected to dip into various genres, considering its lead single, Miracle Worker, is a reggae song. Watch the video below. The band recorded twenty-nine songs, but only twelve will make it onto the debut album. Considering the busy careers of each band member, there don’t seem to be any plans for SuperHeavy to go on tour in support…

In the years since MTV decided to focus more on trashy reality shows instead of music, bands and artists have had to release videos to iTunes, YouTube, Vimeo, and the like, but they rarely have anything close to the same kind of impact or “watchability” as they did back in the heyday of the craft. Suddenly, out of this dull sea of half-assery and overdone performance videos came a band from Chicago named OK Go.  The peppy pop-rock stylings of the band’s self-titled 2002 album didn’t really make them arena headliners, but it resonated with fans of catchy pop-rock. With the release…

Music videos used to “mean something.”  Back in the 1980s and 1990s, when MTV was somewhat close to relevant and had a reason for “music” to be a third of its acronym, it was actually pretty entertaining to watch a music video.  Michael Jackson turned into a werewolf and danced with a street gang of the undead, Slash played elaborate guitar solos while unplugged in a patch of barren farmland, Metallica paired brooding thrash metal with depressingly dark post-World War 1 films, and so on. In the years since MTV decided to focus more on trashy reality shows instead of music, bands…

Britpop brats Oasis scored an international smash hit with their album (What’s The Story?) Morning Glory in 1995, but it could have been an ugly mess. Right before its release, the song Step Out was clipped from the record, because of its mimicry of Stevie Wonder’s Uptight (Everything’s Alright). It’s pretty darn close: you can basically sing Uptight over the chorus of Step Out. Even Noel Gallagher’s vocals follow a similar pattern to Wonder’s in the original song. There weren’t any lawsuits over the song, which became an obscure Oasis b-side, and the British lads were lucky that was the…

A first for “Ripped Off Riffs” category: An artist is accused of ripping himself off? John Hiatt just released his brand new album Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns with a grungy new track called “Damn This Town.” With its minor chords, chopping guitar and biting lyrics it furthers Hiatt’s reputation as a down-and-dirty story-teller. Only thing is… haven’t we heard this riff before? In 1993? Damn This Town Perfectly Good Guitar [poll id=”6″]

Forget about cats jumping on trampolines, cute Asian kids dozing off, or local news anchors not realizing their microphone’s hot when expressing their true opinions regarding their co-workers, there’s no more perfect match for YouTube than videos of Rube Goldberg machines. They’re short, visually-compelling and force you to watch them over and over just to see what’s actually happening. (These, by the way, are the same reasons why porn is so popular.) With a new contraption put together by the Canadian photography company 2D Photography making the rounds (see below) it’s time to put together a conclusive and not-to-be-debated list…

Another one bites the dust. The Sahara Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has closed, slated for demolition or re-brand and extensive re-model. While perhaps not quite as retro-cool as The Sands or The Dunes, the Sahara still exemplified the “Vegas Baby” vibe of the 50s and 60s and hosted numerous A-list performers including members of the legendary “Rat Pack.” Here is a walk down Memory Strip, with some nostalgic photos of a bygone era. Unless otherwise noted, these photographs are from the Nevada News Bureau archives.

Remember the classic video for Bruce Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark? The one with a young Courteney Cox (not Cox-Arquette, mind you) dancing around joyfully while a white-shirted Boss semi-awkwardly flailed his arms around onstage? Take that iconic, ultra-80s moment and imagine it without a crowd, stage, or Cox. Imagine Bruce just standing in a room, dancing in place for the entirety of the video. As recently-unearthed footage of the original video treatment for the song revealed, that nightmare-ish (and potentially embarrassing) video concept could have made the final cut. A Jazzercise-ready, headbanded Bruce bops back and forth when the camera…
