In commemoration of their 50th anniversary, The Monkees have pulled off the impossible with Good Times, the group’s first new studio album in 20 years. The LP is truly a timeless record that stands up proudly against their most revered recordings (i.e.-Headquarters and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Jones Ltd.) Marrying disparate strands of pop, folk, country, bubblegum and psychedelia, the album, produced by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne fame, is a well-considered and welcome throwback to their classic ’60s sound with strong contributions from surviving members Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork along with the late Davy Jones — who is represented…

It takes a special artist to merit induction into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and an even more extraordinary one to be inducted twice into that hallowed institution. Graham Nash is one of those extraordinary artists who has found his way into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as both a member of ’60s British sensations The Hollies and with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. And while he’s celebrated as a consummate master of exquisite harmonies amply displayed in both of those legendary outfits, he’s managed to carefully and diplomatically circumnavigate disharmony in the ranks of those groups with…

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,…

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…

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? Dave Mustaine: Basically…Megadeth has a lot of classical influences, I think all great heavy metal bands do.…

Part I: LET IT BE TOLD Since designing his first album cover in 1969 — a little something you might have heard of called Abbey Road — London-born John Kosh is the rock ’n’ roll art director’s art director. In addition to the Beatles he has designed albums for the Rolling Stones, The Who, the Eagles, James Taylor, ELO and many other rock superstars, including winning three Grammy Awards for his Linda Ronstadt covers. Rock Cellar Magazine interviewed the art director — who prefers to be known simply as “Kosh” — in his funky L.A. inner sanctum, which was formerly…
