The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Amy Winehouse Jane’s Addiction Jimmy Cliff Coldplay Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Soundtrack) Their second collaboration with director David Fincher, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s soundtrack album to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is as impressive as their first get-together (the Oscar-winning score to 2010’s The Social Network). The 39-track score begins and ends with gripping covers – Reznor teams up with Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for the collection’s opener, an eerie, off-kilter take on Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song. His customary industrial production…

Rock Cellar Magazine was fortunate to have the “songwriter’s songwriter,” Jimmy Webb perform for us recently. Here is a video of What Does a Woman See in a Man?  The must-read lyrics are below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZdEDDW5wqc LYRICS:  What Does A Woman See In a Man? He stinks to high heaven, half covered with hair And grunts just like some old orang-utan While she smells of clean skin and a trace of jasmine And speaks like a first rate librarian His stomach hangs out, there’s a hump on his back He eats like Conan the Barbarian While she keeps herself trim, and…

You either love Tom Waits, or you don’t. There’s no in between. You can buy into his bourbon-drowned, porkpie hat, troubadour traveling from midnight gig to midnight gig by way of thumb, barter, or railcar-hopping shtick, or you don’t. Fans believe the greatness of the music outweighs the necessity for it to be based on anything personal. If it’s not your thing, more power to you. It’s understandable. But then, this list of his 16 studio albums – #17, Bad As Me, comes out October 24th – isn’t for you either. For the rest of us, enjoy this trip down…

On September 30th 2011 Jimmy Webb performed at a house concert co-sponsored by Rock Cellar Magazine and Kevin & Mare Wachs, at Casa Candela in Southern California. Along with his legendary status as a prolific songwriter, Jimmy Webb is the consummate story-teller. A camera was running, and captured a few moments of the special evening. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QQVDgqPUQo Thanks to Abi Colbeck from Sabyrtooth.

If ever there was a news story to take with a truckload of salt, this is probably it. The Axl Rose & Friends Experience – er,  Guns ‘N Roses (at least officially what it’s called) anounced a North American tour yesterday, the band’s first in 5 years. Of course, what shape Axl is in now remains to be seen. Whether he still has the blonde dreadlocked and dated football jersey thing going for him will be interesting to see. It’s also intriguing to see if the live show will include a bulk of the overblown songs on Chinese Democracy, the absurdly…

Talk about a long layoff between records. The always irreverent but oh-so-groovy Primus released Green Naugahyde, their first album since 1999’s Antipop, this week. The band, known mostly for vocalist Les Claypool’s talk-singing and funky slap-bass work , sound as tight as ever with the album, which happens to be the first album with Jay Lane, who has done drum work for a lot of Claypool’s non-Primus projects over the years, behind the kit. Reviews for Green Naugahyde are generally favorable, with many considering it a solid release from the band, with some even comparing it to the band’s classic 1990…

It’s a busy month for Nirvana fans. In a few weeks, the 20th Anniversary Edition of 1991’s seminal album Nevermind will be released. Among the special events planned for Tuesday the 27th is the long-awaited release of the band’s 1991 gig at the Paramount Theater in Seattle. Shot on Halloween, it has long been considered the band’s best live performance. VH1 announced this morning that it, VH1 Classic and Palladia will simultaneously broadcast the performance on Friday, September 23rd at 11 PM ET/PT. In addition to being a part of the Nevermind re-issue, Live at the Paramount will also be…

It turns out that the speculation and rumor-mongering that Lindsey Buckingham was doing last week was based in reality. In an interview with Billboard, Mick Fleetwood had this to say: “All we know is we’re working next year. I’ll get a phone call that we’re going to start rehearsing — usually in a blind panic because we leave everything (until) way too late. But we’re all up for touring in the early summer of next year, I think, and once we start we’re much like U2 and the Rolling Stones in terms of workload. We basically play until no one wants to book us anymore.”…

Yesterday was a day of somber reflection for the United States, as the attacks of September 11, 2001 had their tenth anniversary. Paul Simon was supposed to play the Simon & Garfunkel classic Bridge Over Troubled Water at Ground Zero to commemorate the day, but when he showed up he opted to play The Sound of Silence instead. The mood was somber, tragic, and heartbreaking, and Simon’s performance was incredibly poetic.
