“(Joan) Jett is always the coolest person in the room, and an inspiration to anyone who feels like an outsider or misfit,” the rock and roll firebrand’s biography reads on her Hall of Fame inductee page. It’s a great line, but it also sums up Joan Jett perfectly. Jett and her band the Blackhearts fused punk and glam with old school rock and roll — the kind that used to pepper the AM airwaves in the 1960s — making her a household name in the process. Jett had absorbed every Black Sabbath, Suzi Quatro, T. Rex, and New York Dolls…

With its title plucked from a beloved Paul McCartney tune, Danny Boyle’s just-released movie Yesterday proves that 54 years after the Beatles first recorded that song and almost a half century after the pioneering band broke up, the Fab Four remain a popular, potent cultural force. Indeed, the impact of McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr has been so powerful that by 1964 they surpassed the concert stage and recording studio, appearing in major big and little screen productions. In this film/TV history we’ll take a look at the best of them. This retrospective will include features, documentaries,…

25 years after Oasis announced its arrival to the world, Noel and Liam Gallagher, Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs, Tony McCarroll, plus Creation Records head Alan McGee, DJ Gary Crowley and the Oasis Podcast host James Corcoran, tell the origin story of the band’s groundbreaking debut album. The Oasis formula — adding a large dash of the Sex Pistols and T. Rex to the obvious Beatles/Stones/Kinks influences — created a turbo-charged sound that’s as urgent today as it was in 1994, twenty-five years ago, when Definitely Maybe, Oasis’ debut album, hit record store shelves. Rock Cellar gathered together interviews with lead singer Liam…

Relatively few bands have earned the enduring appeal and indomitable musical spirit of the Doobie Brothers. The Doobie Brothers: Live at the Beacon Theatre was released in late June, commemorating a special performance of the albums Toulouse Street and The Captain and Me, turned in at the famed New York City venue in November 2018. Essentially, the Doobie Brothers’ career epitomizes longevity and consistency, as they’ve stayed authentic and true to their mission throughout their career. In fact, one could say that the band advanced “roots” music in significant ways before that term was became more popularized. The band is…

When Melissa Etheridge began the creative process to what would become 15th studio album, The Medicine Show, she took a different tack than usual. Utilizing bassist David Santos’ home studio outside Nashville, the veteran singer/guitarist crafted the sonic terrain first. “I had a very specific idea of what I wanted the music to sound and feel like,” said Etheridge, calling from Pennsylvania amid a summer tour including several shows with Pat Benatar. “I was able to get the rhythms going. A lot of them started on drums. I’m not an accomplished drummer, but I started laying the rhythms down, the…

Lukas Nelson’s 2018 was the sort of year that most musician’s can only dream of, and 2019 is shaping up to be even better for the front man of the roots rock band Promise of the Real. Last year saw Nelson back his dad on several great albums, tour incessantly to packed crowds with his band and as the backing band for Neil Young -– something the band has been doing regularly since 2014 — and helped bring the Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga remake of A Star Is Born to the silver screen. This year, as his band continues to tread…

In the tradition of The Beatles Anthology, the Martin Scorsese-directed No Direction Home: Bob Dylan and the Grammy-nominated Long Strange Trip, the rapturously engaging new documentary David Crosby: Remember My Name serves as an equally definitive portrait of the titular two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Though at ninety-five minutes, David Crosby: Remember My Name feels less akin to a multi-hour, career-spanning travelogue and more of a karmic double feature with this summer’s Rocketman. Whereas Dexter Fletcher’s Elton John biopic was a $40 million musical extravaganza, what made it spectacular was the emotional arc of watching a universally…

Being a member of the Foo Fighters, one of the world’s biggest rock bands, helps swing open some pretty wide doors. When he’s not recording and touring the globe, shredding on lead guitar alongside Dave Grohl and the Foos, Chris Shiflett forges a solo career and most importantly, is able to do it on his own terms, following his muse wherever it leads and not having to kowtow to commercial restraints/expectations. Hard Lessons, Shiflett’s new solo album rooted in a fiery hybrid of rock and country twang, rings true with the voice of a shining talent. Rock Cellar: Given your new…

Powerhouse drummer Zak Starkey has sat behind the kit with The Who for many years, his exciting percussive style uncannily summoning up the spirit of the band’s legendary drummer Keith Moon. Having recently wrapped the first leg of a North American jaunt, the band will be back in the States in the fall continuing their new tour featuring The Who augmented by an orchestra. Away from his work in The Who, Zak, a devoted reggae fan since he was child, has launched a new label, Trojan Jamaica, with partner Sharna “Sshh” Liguz. Calling from Jamaica, the spiritual home of reggae…
