Lynyrd Skynyrd will perform at the Republican National Convention his week, marking the third such appearance in their career. With that being said, the group opened up a little bit about their thoughts on the state of America and where we’re at as a country in a new interview.
There’s a lot of focus on Deep Purple at the moment. First off, it was revealed that an all-star tribute album was in the works to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s ‘Machine Head’ album. Then, it was revealed that the group’s current lineup was plotting a new record and touring for 2013. Now comes word that a pair of vinyl reissues are in the works for October.
Beware Mitt Romney! The last time a politician cited his love for a band – a guy you might know named Paul Ryan talking about Rage Against the Machine – things got a little testy. Ryan, of course, is Romney’s running mate hoping their ticket ends up in the White House.

It may not have been a studio record, but Eric Clapton‘s ‘Unplugged’ was one of the most successful releases of his career.

Paul McCartney fans can now enjoy a new form of musical experimenting. The former Beatle has added a mixing board application to his website, allowing visitors to act as the producer on some of his most popular songs.

First Tom Morello, now Dee Snider. Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan may love rock music, but he’s not exactly having much success buddying up to any musicians at the moment.
