Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Bob Dylan’s prolific career has garnered him 10 Grammy Awards, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the National Medal of Arts, France’s Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres and even a Pulitzer Prize. Now, the rock […]
The Rolling Stones have celebrated their golden anniversary with five shows, two new songs, one documentary (2012′s Crossfire Hurricane), and a slew of other film and photo exhibits around the world. Now they’ll get their […]
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced the initial round of performers and presenters set to honor 2013′s inductees, according to an official press release. Don Henley (Rock Hall class of ’98) will […]
2012 saw the return of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Aerosmith and (sort of) Led Zeppelin. 2013 promises lots of great albums, films and tours from some of music’s greatest legends. The […]
The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame announced its inductees for 2013 at a press conference held at the Nokia Theater L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles today, and two legendary classic rock bands who have been eligible for years have finally been voted in: Rush and Heart. (Artists are eligible 25 years after their first release.)
The Grateful Dead Almanac has undergone several advancements in the past few years. Beginning as a printed direct mail piece, the Almanac has since evolved into an online publication, and now an app. Every day during the “30 Days of Dead”, the group will give fans a previously unreleased, high quality soundboard recording of a live-track for free on dead.net for one day only.
This week, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum has been honoring Chuck Berry as part of its 17th Annual American Music Masters series. The celebration wraps up Saturday night (October 27) with a concert paying tribute to the man, featuring a diverse cast of artists including Rick Derringer, Vernon Reid of Living Colour, country music legend Merle Haggard, David Johansen of The New York Dolls (formerly known as Buster Poindexter), metal icon Lemmy, indie rocker M. Ward, Ronnie Hawkins (leader of The Hawks, who later became The Band), bluesman Joe Bonamassa and DMC from Run-DMC.
The Vice President of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is leaving. Jim Henke, 58, left his position last week to focus on consulting. The former music editor of Rolling Stone is leaving the Rock Hall, an organization he joined in 1994.
Hard rock fans may have cause to rejoice within a few weeks: after being ignored for years, Rush and Deep Purple are on this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot, as is Heart and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. One question that has yet to be answered is, if inducted, which members of these groups will be included?
Chuck Berry has been honored by countless guitarists who came after him, but now he’ll be honored – once again – by the institution of rock’n'roll itself.
