We’re seeing all kinds of creativity lately, with nearly all of us stuck at home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent social distancing, shelter-in-place or safe-at-home ordinances enacted by state governments. Over the weekend, the Instagram page for the band America shared this video first circulated by some fans, who felt a creative spark while listening to “A Horse With No Name.” It’s really best you just watch this without any more introduction: https://www.instagram.com/p/B-C2RLBhZec/ That’s pretty inspired stuff! While on the topic of America, why not spend a few minutes of your day watching our RockCellarTV interview…

Update: In addition to the music documentaries + films highlighted below, there are a number of innovative livestream concert events popping up every few minutes, it seems, in response to the coronavirus pandemic …  The world’s attention surrounds the coronavirus pandemic. Tours are canceled, supermarkets are packed (and, likely, ransacked), tensions are high, and … couches are filled. We’re being told to stay home if necessary and possible, self-isolating to prevent risk of spreading or contracting the virus, which means it’s time to load up on snacks and watch TV. There are a number of noteworthy music films and documentaries…

It’s on everybody’s mind right now, the news cycle twisting and turning and updating every few minutes: the coronavirus pandemic and, more directly, what we can all do to mitigate risk. This includes the concept of “social distancing,” which calls for maintaining a safe distance between yourself and others — approximately six feet, to be exact. https://twitter.com/CDCgov/status/1239357433383960576 It also led to many cities closing bars, restaurants and other venues (including Disneyland and Walt Disney World, among other theme parks) where people would tend to gather in large numbers. The New York Times details it as follows: Put simply, the idea is…

For this month’s Behind the Curtain, Steve Rosen recalls various encounters with Joe Perry and Aerosmith at disparate points in the band’s career — first as a fledgling guitar god, and then an actual guitar god.  Joe Perry is sitting across the table from me with the biggest pile of cocaine I have ever seen in my life. I mean, I’d seen coke in the little vials people used to carry around and I saw an 8-ball once, which was an 1/8th of an ounce, or approximately three to three-and-a-half grams [lest you think I am some sort of drug-sniffing…

“It’s about playing from your heart,” Carlos Santana says about why he believes his music, and remarkable guitar playing, has stood the test of time. “It’s about being gut-bucket honest. For real. No shucking and jiving, no slippin’ and slindin’, no making excuses. You’ve got to give it all you got, from the center of your heart, and be true and be true and be true to every note that you play. That is the requirement for cooking this kind of food: Sincerity and trueness, and playing with intense intensity and with intention. That’s how I play my guitar. You…

Robby Kreiger and John Densmore of the Doors remember 1970, when the fabled Los Angeles band released Morrison Hotel, played some of its most incendiary shows and began one last, great album together. As 1970 dawned, The Doors were imploding. After his arrest in Miami in March 1969 for allegedly exposing himself to an audience, lead singer Jim Morrison was facing a long, sordid trial, and (after an October 1970 guilty verdict) the very real prospect of jail time. The band, a formidable live unit by that time, were effectively banned from performing as a result of the post-Miami fallout,…

It’s almost impossible to imagine, but before taking the world by storm with Led Zeppelin, or even as a member of the Yardbirds, guitar legend Jimmy Page was just another kid, inspired by his musical heroes to pick up the guitar.
