How does spending a week in Mexico with some of the biggest names in classic rock sound?
I know right?
Well wish no longer, because there’s a resort in Riviera Maya that’s putting the whole thing together for you.
Of course, you’ll have to dole out some serious cash, as packaged start at just under $2k. Taking a look at the bands, you may think it’s worth it anyway.
Those who choose the four-day plan will be treated to concerts by Steve Miller, Roger Daltrey, Bad Company, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Cheap Trick, Don Felder, Blue Oyster Cult, Starship featuring [More]

Journey fans, it wasn’t EXACTLY what you were looking for, but it is a step in the right direction!
Rumors were flying pretty intensely that former lead singer Steve Perry was going to join his ex-band mates on stage at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. What nobody knew though, was if Perry would be getting along with decades old arch-nemesis, and former co-writer Neal Schon.
Those fears were laid to rest pretty quickly when Perry took the mic and gave praise to the guitar virtuoso.
Unfortunately for Journey fans, Perry opted not to take the stage with the band [More]

When Kansas shows up to Jacksonville in December to play the “Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour” they’ll obviously be playing this track.
It may sound a little different than the audio below, that’s because the YouTube track is actually the boys in Anthrax shredding this legendary tune.
I have to admit they did a killer job with it!

If nothing else, Nick Mason can definitively say he’s three things:
He’s an iconic drummer who played in one of the most influential bands of all-time
He’s an avid car collector who’s garage is worth millions upon millions
He’s rich enough to repair the damage he caused on the track recently while racing his F1 GTR
This past weekend Mason blew the dust off his super-rare McLaren literally worth near $15 million dollars. Unfortunately for him, the track wasn’t all to impressed with his driving skills, and the drummer was taking a break from crashing symbols, and opted instead to crash his race car.

Chuck Berry has been called the father of rock n roll, and rightfully so. The man is said to have influenced acts from Elvis, to the Beatles, to Aerosmith, to Led Zeppelin, and more.
So it shouldn’t be shocking that when Berry passed away over the weekend at 90 year old from what doctors are calling “natural causes”, nearly everybody blessed enough to work a stage performing decided to pay tribute:
Sting, who was giving a private performance, made sure to honor Berry:
Bon Jovi was playing Columbus Ohio when he gave this tip of the cap:
Meanwhile the Red Hot Chili Peppers followed [More]

There’s a new production of “Tommy” opening in England this month, and Pete Townshend wrote a brand new song for it.
It’s called “Acid Queen 2”, and Pete was inspired to write it after he heard the production would feature actors with disabilities. He says, quote, “This is a totally new adventure, and [it] really does refer back to my original story in which a young man, disabled by extreme trauma, finds his way to some kind of spiritual place because he can FEEL music. I can’t wait to see it.”
Peter Straker is playing the Acid Queen, and he says, quote, “She [More]

The Queen of classic rock recently took some time to sit with the folks at Rolling Stone, and discuss what’s been going on in the world of Nicks recently. The interview, for the most part, seemed pretty standard until they finally began to dig into recent happenings with her longtime band mates:
Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie are about to release an album as a duo. It seems like it started as a Fleetwood Mac album, but you chose not to participate.
“I’ve been on the road [solo] since last September, so I don’t understand their premise. Christine was gone [More]

It wasn’t too long ago that Peter Frampton was sitting in his home when he heard a thud at the window.
This isn’t an experience that is unique to rock stars, or celebrities. Chances are it may have happened to you in your lifetime. Heck, If you’ve attended a football game in the frozen tundra of Minnesota, you can hear it up to 500 times per year.
But for Pete, it became a muse for his latest single.

It’s no secret that Ace Frehley has had his ups and downs with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley over the past 40+ years.
These days though, Ace seems to be on good terms with his former band-mates, and he thinks that’ll one day lead to his return to the group.
Speaking with Brazil’s Kazagastao, in an interview you can watch below, Frehley said that he’s “good friends” with Stanley and added that he had recently crossed paths with Gene as well:
“I just saw Gene about a month ago. He came to my concert in Los Angeles. We hung out all night — [More]

We all try to indoctrinate our children to listen to the music we love. It’s definitely a bummer when your lovable rug rat demands to hear the Disney album you’ve really worn out. How many more times can you possibly listen to “Let It Go” from Frozen? Oh, another time? Great.
Enter the folks over at Fine Brothers Entertainment. They’re the dudes who do the video series “Kids React To…” on Youtube. They decided to play the epic masterpiece “Appetite For Destruction” for a bunch of kids to see how they would react to REAL rock music. The results are amazing!
