It's no secret that KNIGHT RIDER is The Greatest Television Series of All-Time™ (a title bestowed upon it by yours truly), and because of that it's been covered here in the virtual pages of The Rock Father™ Magazine at length over the years. Along with the series itself, the iconic theme song by Stu Phillips is the stuff of legend - a piece of music so powerful that it's been covered in countless styles for nearly four decades. This week, Banjo Guy Ollie turned his attention away from video game music (which he excellently brings into the world of banjo and accordion) and toward television themes, so it was only appropriate that he's getting things started with KNIGHT RIDER!

The spirit of true American metal is coming to Comic-Con International in San Diego this summer. In collaboration with AXE HEAVEN, makers of cool, miniature replica guitars, War Machine Marketing will bring an officially-licensed limited-edition set of PANTERA guitars to SDCC. Based on the titles of PANTERA albums and inspired by Dimebag Darrell's iconic "Dean from Hell," these will be extremely limited with just 30 sets of all 5 guitars available and 36 each of the 3 main guitars available each day. Due to the extremely limited nature of these guitars, a raffle will be held each day to determine the order of who can purchase them.
Craft Recordings proudly announces the 50th anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was in the summertime half a century ago that CCR, a group that would reach sky-high success while retaining a resolutely rootsy, earthbound sound, released their debut album. This marked the beginning of an incredible legacy that was formed over just four years of unbridled creative output (1968-1972).
