The crew from Century Media just hit my inbox with a message about LIONS LIONS covering the JAY-Z collaboration with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, "Holy Grail." Thing is, they really only half covered it, because they stripped Z's verses blaming lack of rapping ability in one forum, and use of "the 'N' word" in another. Whatever, VAYDEN did just fine with...
This is the news I've been waiting for since FAITH NO MORE first reunited for their "Second Coming" shows that began in 2009... FAITH NO MORE have announced their first North American Tour since 1997, and it's happening this April/May. At long last, the band will return to Chicago for a date at Concord Music Hall (5/7), and one way...
Last year, SHAWN MENDES was declared Radio Disney's "Next Big Thing," and in 2015, that's been coming true. His debut album, HANDWRITTEN entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1 back in April, he's opening for TAYLOR SWIFT on select dates of her 1989 World Tour, and now he's got the first single and video for the forthcoming Disney...
According to The Rock Daughters, who are just three and six, GHOST's "From The Pinnacle to The Pit" is a song that "sounds like SCOOBY-DOO." Perhaps it's the spooky nature, or even that lead melody, but whatever the reason, the girls have told Mommy and Daddy their feelings on this song many times already. Now that their third album,...
As I sit in my office working tonight, I can hear the GRAMMY telecast faintly emitting from the TV in the family room. I have no idea what's happening, but I do know that the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences got two things right tonight - GHOST took home their first GRAMMY, winning "Best Metal Performance" with...
It should be no secret to readers of this site or those who know me well that FAITH NO MORE are my favorite band of all-time. If not for them, this site probably wouldn't exist (story here) - their presence felt daily (even my ringtone is "Absolute Zero"). The past few years have been a great time to be...
When I first saw KORN perform live some 21+ years ago, I never would've expect that I'd be writing about them on a near-weekly basis in the fall of 2016. But here we are, just 10 days out from the release of THE SERENITY OF SUFFERING (Roadrunner Records, October 21), and yet another track from the album has been unleashed...
Just last week, I'd been listening to The Lonely Island here at Rock Father HQ, and it hit me that their breakthrough viral hit, "Lazy Sunday," was already 12 years old. As I tend to do on occasion, I followed The Lonely Island down the rabbit hole and re-watched their classic SNL Digital Shorts, followed by binging on the...
Oddly mesmerizing, and strangely soothing... today popular metal YouTuber Rob Scallon has uploaded a cover of the METALLICA classic "For Whom the Bell Tolls," played in its entirety on bells... or bell-sounding instruments like a children's xylophone.  It's a great video to start the week, month, or as Rob calls it - "MAY-TALLICA." Take a look: amzn_assoc_placement =...
I've mentioned it before - the first big concert I ever attended was The Oak Ridge Boys at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merriville, Indiana way back when it was still the Holiday Star Theatre. That said, I've continued enjoying their music for the past 40 years, and now comes news that the Country Music Hall of Fame members...
