When given a rare one-on-one conversation with Derek Smalls, bassist of mythical and oh-so-very-loud rock and roll icons Spinal Tap, what would one ask? At the NAMM Show in Anaheim this past weekend, Rock Cellar was given that exclusive honor, so we asked him: What would he say is the legacy Spinal Tap has left in its wake? “I’d say the legacy of Spinal Tap, above everything else, is three words: Never too loud. And until the band comes around and wants to make that their mantra, their mandate, then I think it will be our legacy hewn into living…

Headlining each weekend of the fest in April will be Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande. The full lineup, which features acts from across all music genres — a trait the Goldenvoice-produced event has come to be known for in recent years, after starting out as a strictly “rock” festival back when it started, can be seen below: https://twitter.com/coachella/status/1080682180764811264 And the full lineup in text-based format (in case you don’t want to squint staring at…

In September, it was announced that a massive self-titled box set was in the works paying tribute to the late Chris Cornell, who passed away in May 2017. Today, that set is out, and it’s just about as reverent a musical tribute to Cornell could possibly be. A mercurial but endlessly gifted songwriter and vocalist, Cornell dabbled in all corners of the musical landscape. After starting with the grungy Seattle sound of Soundgarden, he would later front Temple of the Dog (a supergroup with members of Pearl Jam, among others), Audioslave (with members of Rage Against the Machine) and forge…

This past spring, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic and his impeccable (and underrated) backing band went out on the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, a trek across North America catering to only the most dedicated fans interested in long concerts of deep cuts and rarely-played material. It was truly an effort for longtime, die-hard Yankovic fans, and it was a delight. With that ambitious tour under his belt, ‘Weird Al’ set his sights on something huge for 2019: A big tour across North America that will find him and his band accompanied by a symphony orchestra each night. It’s called, simply, the Strings…

Hollywood has had a long love affair with pop stars. Considering their often outrageous personas, lifestyles, talent and high profiles, pop music figures are naturals for movie biographies about them, and many have been shot. The release of Bohemian Rhapsody is likely to revive and rev up the film genre of rock and roll biopics. By this we mean biographical pictures about actual rock ’n’ roll musicians, in the way that Bohemian Rhapsody depicts Queen and its front man, Freddie Mercury. They may cover all or a significant portion of singers and musicians’ lives — Bohemian Rhapsody, for example, focuses on 15…

I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land. – Jon Stewart Feeling thankful about anything yet? Neither are we. Thanksgiving is approaching, and the day is supposed to be about gratitude but let’s face it, the world is filled with nothing but ingrates. “They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” by Napoleon XIV  Recording engineer Jerry Samuels — as Napoleon XIV —  said he came up with this 1966 novelty hit while sitting in his vibrating lounger smoking a…

The concept of a “hologram tour” might make some cringe, sure — but it’s happening, so you’d better get used to it. Eyellusion, the company responsible for this cutting-edge technological advancement as a means of presenting live shows from artists that have passed away, was already working on a Frank Zappa hologram tour, and now it’s set its sights on a Ronnie James Dio hologram tour, as well. The iconic hard-rock icon died in 2010, but Eyellusion is planning 100 live shows in 2019 featuring a hologram likeness of the singer. The Dio hologram made its first appearance in 2015 at…

Below, enjoy an exclusive review of the new Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody from Rock Cellar’s resident film critic, Ed Rampell. Are You Ready for Freddie? The new 20th Century Fox movie Bohemian Rhapsody, in theaters Nov. 2.,is to the genre of rock star biopics what Giacomo Puccini’s La Boheme is to opera. Actor Rami Malek delivers a Freddie Mercury for the ages. His depiction of Queen’s front man is as complex as Val Kilmer’s Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone’s 1991 film The Doors or Paul Dano and John Cusack’s joint portrayal of Brian Wilson in 2014’s Love & Mercy. In…
