LADY GAGA has announced a spring tour dubbed THE BORN THIS WAY BALL. The five-time Grammy Award winner will perform music from her recent BORN THIS WAY album, along with songs from both THE FAME, and THE FAME MONSTER. ''The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage,'' said the Mother Monster. ''The Born...
Updated: The Official Press Release follows the post.It's pretty appropriate that the first ''new'' post here on The Rock Father™'s own site relates to one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. While their ''big announcement'' scheduled for 1pm CST is running late, I can confirm that METALLICA will headline their own ORION MUSIC + MORE Festival on...
September 11, 2001 was a Tuesday - the day that new releases traditionally hit the streets for public consumption. It also happened to be a massive day for new music releases in what should've been the kick-off for the high-profile Fall Release season at a time when the music industry was seeing record sales numbers just prior to the...
With so many 20th Anniversary Editions of albums that were released in 1991 hitting the marketplace, it's important to remember that there were some great albums released that year that will never be celebrated or get their due. While it was an influential year for music and a monumental year for rock,  it was also a year that brought us...
I'm not sure what they're teaching at colleges these days, but it seems there's a major disconnect happening when it comes to recent graduates from the media programs out there. They're clueless. It's no surprise to this college drop-out that the recent factory models seem to come equipped with less bells and whistles than their street-tested non-college counterparts, or that...
It's a rare occasion when something lands in my lap and commands that it skip the queue and go right into the player. It's even more of a rarity when I review said album so quickly after receiving it. For the long-awaited GOLD COBRA, the new album from LIMP BIZKIT exceptions have been made. When a band moves over 20 million records...
Over the past few years several sites have featured what may have been one of the most successful, yet some would argue 'ethnically insensitive' ad campaigns of the early 1990's - ST. IDES Malt Liquor. Unfortunately, there was always one commercial that no one ever seemed to have, which just so happened to be the commercial that I most...
One of the most daunting tasks for any artist is the inevitable media rounds prior to the release of an album. Pre-release interviews, conversations - whatever you want to call them - tend to be boring for all involved, a necessary evil in order to reach the unfamiliar... the new ears... the uninformed. After all, exposing your album to...
20 Years Ago, PANTERA redefined metal when Atco Records released COWBOYS FROM HELL, the legendary album that opened the "Cemetery Gates" and introduced a legion of metal fans to the true "Art of Shredding." With their unmistakable brand of Texas groove-metal, PANTERA quickly became of the biggest acts in heavy music. With the long-awaited reissue of CFH taking place this...
As they say, "everyone has to start somewhere..." For me it was the summer of 1992. I'd moved to Davenport, Iowa from my longtime home in the South Suburbs of Chicago the prior February, somehow managing to find myself elected Vice-President of my class for my upcoming junior year of high school at Davenport North. I was 15, bored, and...
