On Aug. 12, 1968, in a small space on Gerrard Street in the west end of London, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham played together for the very first time. The first song the band -- which would later be named Led Zeppelin -- tore into was 'The Train Kept A-Rollin',' which was a fixture in Page's previous band, the Yardbirds.
After revealing recently that Avenged Sevenfold were about six songs into a writing their upcoming album. M. Shadows has now given a big hint as to what direction the band will be taking on the disc. He also has laid out a timetable for the album's release.
Through the years music has continually changed, but rock music remains a constant. There is always a band on the cusp of making something great, but what albums are the greatest? What albums have transcended time and to this day still are just as powerful as they were when they first came out
If could pick one guitarist to meet that is still alive, I think Jimmy Page would be one of the main candidates. He joined the guys from The Black Crowes on stage in England for a rendition of "Shake Your Money Maker".
Today is an absolutely perfect day to just sit outside and enjoy a couple adult beverages. Oh yeah, and you can listen to me sing and play too. Yeah that’s right… this is a shameless plug for myself. Head on down to R Bar (Pearl St. Albany) when you get out of work and I will do my best to entertain you until about 9 or so.
I was fortunate enough to see my favorite singer one more time this weekend (6/25/11) in Atlantic City, NJ. And it was so worth the trip! There is something so incredible about seeing your favorite artist isn’t there?
Although I’ve been to the Montreal Jazz Festival, I had never heard of this award before. That’s because they just started giving it away in 2006. It is given to honor a popular artist’s extraordinary contribution to the musical world. And Plant sure certainly qualifies for that.
