Last night's 2018 Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden featured performances from 3 classic rockers as well as a tribute to Tom Petty. U2, Elton John and Sting made key contributions to this year's event.
Considering how rock/metal artists and their awards categories have been treated in recent history during GRAMMY telecasts, you’d think we would be used to being treated like the proverbial red-headed stepchild by now. However, the 60th GRAMMY Awards telecast has taken things another major step further.
Among the predominantly pop, hip-hop and R&B artists tapped to perform at the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards, there’s finally a couple of classic rock acts booked to …well…rock the crowd at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
Led Zeppelin’s self-titled debut album was released 49 years ago today (January 12.) Besides being one of the best albums of all time, Led Zeppelin also has one of the best opening tracks of all time, too.
The late Syd Barrett would’ve turned 72 today (January 6), and besides being Pink Floyd’s founding guitarist/frontman, one of his other biggest contributions to the band’s history is serving as the inspiration to “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” an epic and favorite among fans the world over.
Recently U2's charismatic lead singer sat down for an extended interview with Rolling Stone publisher, Jann Wenner. In it he reveals that a near death experience helped shape the lyrical content of the band's new album, why 'The Joshua Tree' tour was more difficult that he expected, advice he received from Sir Paul McCartney, where he sees rock music going and much more.
