In the years since the so-called “grunge” scene turned bands from and around Seattle into MTV darlings during the early 1990s, countless books examining the phenomenon have been written and released to the masses. Few of them, though, touch on the scene as significantly and dynamically as Mark Yarm’s Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge, an exhaustively-researched and impressively complete oral history that was released in 2011. Not content to publish merely another book discussing Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, and the like, Everybody Loves Our Town features in-depth discussions with musicians, label heads, industry figures, hangers-on, and others that…

In the 1960s, Julie Newmar epitomized sex appeal, femininity and wit in her portrayal as Catwoman in the popular Batman television series. As Batman’s femme fatale, Catwoman was the perfect villainess and vixen.  Bringing a little sex, glamour and pizzazz to the campy, cult classic – arching her back in a long, sensuous stretch, wearing that sparkly, black bodysuit – Julie Newmar captured the hearts of male (and female) viewers young and old. With beauty, brains and a charming sense of humor, Newmar’s career has spanned six decades, with countless notable television roles playing both comedic and supernatural characters in…

It used to be that only politicians and war heroes were immortalized on statues that honored their accomplishments. So it’s a good thing that today you’re more likely to see a statue of Lennon than of Lenin. Many hometowns of rock stars were once ashamed of the excessive lifestyles of their native sons. Today they realize there’s a buck to be made from fans that come from around the world to pay homage to the stars. Rock Cellar Magazine chose a few of the top statues that honor these music legends, fully aware that one day all 5 members of…

Kris Kristofferson Camper Van Beethoven Yo La Tengo New Order Bad Religion The Stone Foxes Richard Thompson My Bloody Valentine Kris Kristofferson Feeling Mortal If the United States has a Renaissance man, Kris Kristofferson is probably him.  The man has done it all: he’s been a Golden Glove boxer, a Rhodes scholar, a college football player at Pomona College, a summa cum laude graduate in Literature, an acclaimed actor (Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, A Star Is Born, Lone Star), a captain in the U.S. Army, and a helicopter pilot. And, yes, Kristofferson is also a singer-songwriter – one of…

In the opening line of the song Africa by Toto, David Paich sings: “I hear the drums echoing tonight…” Those drums are still echoing loud and clear on this month’s 30th anniversary of Africa reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In the 1960s, New York City was the center of the recording industry and home to a wealth of small clubs and theaters that hosted the cream of rock music. Fans could catch bands on their way up at smaller venues with moderate ticket prices. But 1969’s Woodstock festival changed the industry and superstars began to demand huge fees to appear. Small venues could no longer compete with huge arenas and stadiums for name acts. In a 1971 letter, promoter Bill Graham explained that he would close both Fillmore East and West because of  “the unreasonable and totally destructive inflation…
