The Kinks’ Ray Davies celebrating his 74th birthday today. Ray is one of those guys we could go on for days about, but we are sure you are familiar with his work. We’ll ask you one of our normal question though. If you could go to Ray’s birthday party tonight, and Ray told you he […]

Heart’s Ann Wilson has one more candle on her birthday cake today. Ann is regarded as one of the best female vocalists in rock music history. She was listed as one of the “Top Heavy Metal Vocalists of All Time” by Hit Parader magazine in 2006. We would think she is also one of the […]

Carlos. Back in the early 70’s when Trick was just starting, they took a little different approach to how […]

Today we are remembering Rory Gallagher. That is the way we are told we should start a piece about him on the anniversary of his death. It was 23 years ago today that Rory passed away. But it would be incorrect for us to say ‘today’. We remember him every day. Rory has a huge […]
