By the early ’80s, guitarist Brad Whitford and lead singer/guitarist Derek St. Holmes, members of Aerosmith and Ted Nugent respectively, had departed from their classic bands and were forging out together on a new project aptly titled Whitford St. Holmes. In 1981, the duo issued a self-titled album, packed with radio-friendly songs bursting with power charged riffs, passionate, soulful singing and giant hooks. Inexplicably, the album failed to make a commercial dent on the charts and after a slate of touring dates they disbanded. Now a remarkable 35 years later, they’ve joined forces once again and have returned with a…

For self-respecting music fans, Andy Partridge is rightly revered as one of the most important songwriters in popular music based on his stellar work in XTC. But away from his own work, Partridge is a huge fan of rock and roll, from Pink Floyd to the Beatles, The Byrds to The Hollies, Small Faces to The Kinks, and all groups in between. He’s also a diehard Monkees fan. So when he received the call to submit new songs for a Monkees album, he woodshedded and delivered a parcel of pop jewels embroidered with Monkee magic. Andy shares his love of the…

Just like the Beach Boys, a band that featured brothers Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson and cousin Mike Love (plus Alan Jardine), ‘60s female surf group The Honeys featured two sisters, Marilyn and Diane Rovell and cousin Ginger Blake. The trio clicked musically and created their own signature brand of feel good music with classics like He’s A Doll and Hide Go Seek. Rock Cellar Magazine sat down with Marilyn Wilson and Ginger Blake, two of the three founding members of The Honeys, for a fun filled look back at their career. The band formed in 1961 and was originally called The Rovell Sisters,…

Susan Sarandon’s debut feature was as a hippie in the landmark 1970 film Joe, starring Peter Boyle as a disgruntled blue collar worker who goes on a shooting spree against counterculture denizens of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. While Joe would probably vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race, Sarandon is on the stump for Sen. Sanders. Sarandon is well known as an activist who has used her celebrity to support and bring attention to many causes and candidates, including 2000’s Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader. At the dawn of Bill Clinton’s presidency, while Sarandon and her then- partner,…

“We were enormously creative, always pushing ourselves,” Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin’s legendary guitarist and founder tells me when I ask why he thinks the band’s albums have stood the test of time. “If I was off the road I was writing songs for the next album. I wasn’t somebody who was sort of producing other bands and making hay while the sun shined. I didn’t want to do that. I was more into seeing how far I could personally push myself. I just wanted to keep coming up with new things that would inspire the others, and they were all…

Watching Richie Furay and his talented band plow through an accomplished set at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California in late February of 2015, one walks away not only extraordinarily impressed by the enduring nature of his songwriting catalog but with his robust and expressive voice, an ageless wonder which still resonates with the same joy and passion heard on classic records by his bands, Buffalo Springfield, Poco and the Souther-Furay-Hillman Band. His new solo record, Hand in Hand, his first in eight years, finds the artist, now approaching 71 years of age, at the top of his game,…

Neil Peart is widely regarded as one of the greatest — if not the greatest — drummers in rock history. But the stickman for genre-defining Canadian prog-rockers Rush does not carry himself like a rock star, nor does he define himself by the trappings of fame. Away from the stage, he prefers a life of quiet contemplation, good conversation, and the creative outlet of writing. He grants very few interviews, but made an exception for Rock Cellar to discuss the superficiality of stardom, the joys of anonymity, and the meditative joys of being an explorer, a writer, and being what he calls…

“We’ve gotta thank our audience,” Tom Petty told the crowd in Boise, Idaho on August 5, 2014. “We’ve had quite a long career as far as rock’n’roll bands go. Throughout that long career, and many records, we’ve never been able to get past number two on the charts. So I want to thank you because Hypnotic Eye is now our first #1!” As remarkable as it may seem, in a career that has soundtracked the lives of seemingly half the planet, with albums like Damn The Torpedoes, Hard Promises, Full Moon Fever and Wildflowers, not to mention his membership in the Traveling Wilburys, Tom Petty had never hit the top…

Singer/songwriter Art Alexakis has fronted the alternative/rock band Everclear for more than twenty years, achieving huge mainstream success with singles such as Father of Mine, Wonderful, Santa Monica, Rock Star, and I Will Buy You a New Life. Despite the band’s success, it hasn’t always been an easy path for Alexakis – feuds with record labels, frequent lineup changes and other obstacles have sprung up as potential detours. Despite those bumps in the road, Alexakis remains committed – Everclear (and its new lineup) is preparing to release a new album and embark on another successful summer tour. For the next…

From his early days as a member of Metallica to his award-winning career as the front man and guitarist of the thrash/metal outfit Megadeth, Dave Mustaine has become something of a legend. Rock Cellar Magazine recently caught up with Mustaine for a spirited chat about his upcoming classical performance, Megadeth, the media, the music business and more – enjoy it all below. Rock Cellar Magazine: You’re playing a special gig with the San Diego Symphony on April 12. How did that come about?
