The Who accomplished a great deal in their heyday, but judged against fellow ‘60s contemporaries The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks, the group’s recorded output body of work is relatively small. But what they lack in sheer quantity is made up by a strong, must-listen collection of classic albums; witness the pop art swagger of The Who Sell Out, groundbreaking pop-operas Tommy and Quadrophenia and the introspective angst of Who By Numbers to find a band truly in its element. Simply titled WHO, the band’s first new record in 13 years, is available now. It’s a thrilling, spirited snapshot…

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s triumphant 1969 return to live performance with a sold-out engagement at the newly opened International Hotel in Las Vegas. The newly released Sony Music 11-CD box set, Elvis: Live 1969 (pick up a copy here) showcases 11 complete concerts that lend powerful testament to the enduring magic of Elvis Presley live in concert and what made him the world’s most explosive, charismatic and dynamic performer around. Energized by the galvanizing global success of 1968’s Singer Presents … Elvis NBC TV special, Elvis was primed and ready for a long-awaited return to the concert stage.…

London Calling, the seminal 1979 record from The Clash, turns 40 years old this month, and still sounds as fresh, as groundbreaking and as genre-bending as ever. The sounds that front man Joe Strummer, guitarist Mick Jones, bassist Paul Simonon and drummer Topper Headon committed to tape in London’s Wessex Studios four decades ago — going far beyond the punk that made the band famous, to take in soul, jazz, reggae, rockabilly, the blues, and so much more  — have stood the test of time precisely because the band sought to shake off its punk origins with just the same…

Debbie Harry is a certifiable pop culture icon. As the frontperson for Blondie, the chart-topping New Wave group that grew out of New York City’s fabled CBGBs-fueled punk scene, she became known worldwide as not just one of the premier fashion and style symbol of her era, but one of the most arresting lead singers of late-1970s and early-80s, and certainly the premiere female artist of the fertile, post-punk musical landscape. Her new memoir, the no-holds-barred Face It, is both a love letter to her early days fighting for attention amongst the litany of bands trying to make it on…

More than a half a century since its original release, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society album is lauded as a landmark moment in rock and roll history and is lauded as one of the group’s signature classics. Yet its worthy follow-up album, 1969’s Arthur (Or The Decline and Fall Of The British Empire) has wrongly failed to earn the same gushing accolades. Now that’s about to change, with a 50th anniversary 4-CD deluxe box culling 81 tracks, including a newly remastered version of the original album having been released in late October. In addition to the above,…

As a frequent guest on Saturday Night Live in the 1970s, Steve Martin often did a recurring skit with the catchphrase “I’m just a wild and crazy guy.” Danny Wilde, half of veteran pop/rock duo The Rembrandts, facetiously describes songwriting partner Phil Solem in a similar way while referencing “Broken Toy,” a catchy standout on their new album Via Satellite. “He has a different way to say what’s on his mind than I do. I’m more of a romantic guy; he’s the twisted freak,” explained Wilde, in a recent phone interview from home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.    With lyrics like…

The impact of the musical contributions of Jesse Colin Young is undeniable. As a founding member of seminal 1960s band the Youngbloods, the songwriter/singer attained success and notoriety with their version of the peace anthem “Get Together,” which hit No. 5 on the billboard charts when it was re-released in 1969. Recently, Jesse Colin Young paid a visit to RockCellarTV studios for a special one-on-one video interview and performance session. During the candid and revealing chat, Jesse discusses the legacy of the Youngbloods, life in general, songwriting and much more. Watch the interview below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x7urGhJltc Jesse also strapped on an…

A faithful member of Elvis Presley’s retinue of close friends known as “The Memphis Mafia,” Marty Lacker was one of The King’s trusted friends and was instrumental in arranging Elvis’ seminal recording sessions at American Studios with producer Chips Moman in January and February of 1969. We spoke to Lacker a few years back before his passing in February of 2017. During that exclusive conversation, he shared the genesis behind those historic sessions, which yielded the hits, “Suspicious Minds,” “In The Ghetto,” “Don’t Cry Daddy,” and “Kentucky Rain,” and marked an artistic rebirth for Presley’s career. Marty Lacker: I quit…

Duane Betts has a lot to live up to. So it’s no surprise that the son of Allman Brothers Band guitar legend Dickey Betts, who was named for one of the greatest guitar players of all-time, Duane Allman, started out his musical life as a drummer. “I took interest in the drums at a pretty early age,” Betts tells Rock Cellar. “Drums and guitars were around, but I remember picking up the guitar and it just seemed really too difficult for me at the time. So I wanted to play the drums, and my dad got me a drum set.”…

Black Flag was one of the most important bands to come out of the L.A. punk scene of the early-1980s. The band pioneered hardcore, and eventually post-hardcore, under the guiding hand of guitarist and songwriter Greg Ginn, whose incendiary anti-authoritarian and nonconformist messages struck a chord with teens and twenty-somethings during the Reagan era. But it was Henry Rollins, the charismatic front man for the band during the heady days of the band’s greatest popularity, from 1981-1986, who became the poster child for their incendiary brand of hardcore punk. As chronicled in the new book More Fun In The New…
