The Rolling Stones played a surprise show in LA last night which included playing ‘Sticky Fingers’ in its entirety. Earlier this year, the band threw the idea of playing the album in its entirety around, being unsure of how it would resonate with audiences.
The Rolling Stones are getting ready to go on their Zip Code tour across North America this summer, including a stop in Kansas City on June 27.
Maria Brink from In This Moment appears as a guest vocalist on Papa Roach’s song “Gravity” which released on their newest album F.E.A.R. and recently joined Papa Roach on stage at a show in Moline, Il to perform a live debut of the song.
This will probably happen more often later this year, seeing as In This Moment will be joining Papa Roach and Five Finger Death Punch on tour this fall. Both bands will also be at Rockfest in Kansas City May 30.
Foo Fighters served as David Letterman’s last ever musical guest on May 20, which makes sense because Foo Fighers are Letterman’s favorite band. The band played a live rendition of “Everlong” as a video tribute to Letterman’s 33-year career played over the top of it.
Loudwire put together this video of rock stars including Phil Anselmo, Slash, Scott Ian, Sully Erna, Tom Maxwell and more sharing their stories and feelings about the late Dimebag Darrell who was shot and killed 10 years ago today (Dec. 8).
This guy does a 20-minute Megadeth medley playing snippets of all Megadeth songs in chronological order. He starts all the way back at Killing Is My Business…And Business Is Good and ended with Super Collider. He doesn’t slip up once either. What a badass!
The newest episode of Foo Fighters’ HBO series, Sonic Highways, focuses on the rich musical history of Seattle, Washington. Naturally, Nirvana received heavy focus during the episode as Dave Grohl recounted his time in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame outfit.
Among the biggest revelations was the time Kurt Cobain asked to hear solo recordings Grohl had been working on during Nirvana’s 1992 tour. Those demos included ‘Alone + Easy Target”’ which would later be released on Foo Fighters’ 1995 debut album.
‘Kurt heard that, and kissed me on the face, as he was in a bath,’ Grohl revealed. ‘He was so excited. He was like, ‘I heard you recorded some stuff with Barrett [Jones].’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He was like, ‘Let me hear it.’ I was too afraid to be in the same room as he listened to it.’
