Every day now for two weeks, I heard the song rise from what must have been a pair of seriously-powered speakers the size of refrigerators. Floating out over the hills of Hollywood like sweetly-scented sonic spores, the music had to be screaming from those distant monitors because the riff of Billy Gibbons’ guitar scuttled the birds in the trees and the vocals came down the canyon walls like the voice of God himself. If the Lord spoke with a southern twang, sported a beard that tickled his belly button and played the meanest blues guitar in the world. Precisely at…

Via such epic singles as Shapes Of Things, Heart Full of Soul, For Your Love, Over Under Sideways Down, Happenings Ten Years Time Ago and others, The Yardbirds made their mark in the ’60s with a sound awash in gritty blues rock swagger. It also didn’t hurt that the band showcased in its ranks three of rock’s greatest guitar players, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. A pivotal influence on the likes of Aerosmith, The Black Crowes and sundry other bands, The Yardbirds legacy lives on through a new ensemble numbering original drummer Jim McCarty and new recruits, John…

Last weekend, Rock Cellar Magazine and the Get Together Foundation teamed up for a pair of all-star tribute gigs at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. With proceeds benefiting some local charities, the California Saga shows paid tribute to some of the most classic California music ever created – think CSNY, Linda Ronstadt, the Eagles, the Doors, the Beach Boys, and so on – and each night, the stage was filled with accomplished musicians donating their time and efforts to the cause. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6ElBh-bkmc Rock Cellar publisher/CEO Kevin Wachs gathered his musical friends and colleagues, among them Carnie Wilson, Marilyn Wilson and…

“When buying a used car, punch the buttons on the radio. If all the stations are rock and roll, there’s a good chance the transmission is shot.” – Larry Lujack Since Elvis Presley burst on the scene, the recording industry has been built around the musical whims of teenagers. Because nothing fascinates teens more than themselves, here are our Top 11 Songs About Teenagers. I’m Eighteen by Alice Cooper I’m Eighteen was Alice Cooper’s first success, a No. 21 hit in 1970. “You hear people all the time say, ‘Boy, I’m Eighteen came out when I was 18,'” Cooper told…

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…

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…

I have always been awed, mesmerized and fascinated by the people who make music. Their ability to touch fans and to bring joy and sadness, communicate emotions and thoughts and to even change the very course of human history makes them the most powerful creative force on the planet. As profoundly important as painters, sculptors, builders, and architects have been, no creative entity has ever wielded more lasting impact than the musician; the guitar player; the songwriter. And as much as I love writers—John Steinbeck was the greatest who ever lived and used words like nobody else ever did—I think…
