Sometimes in the classic rock world, you don’t know whether you’re looking at truth or fiction. If you see Eddie Money working as a travel agent, well that’s just a funny Geico commercial. But a bunch of reality show contestants taking their worst shot at singing Night Ranger’s ‘Sister Christian’ in front of the real Night Ranger on ‘The Bachelor Pad?’ Oh yeah, that really happened.
Former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett was a big part of the group’s golden period, perhaps best remembered by his work on their fabled ‘The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway’ album. Now, 35 years after his departure from the band, he’ll revisit selections from their classic catalog with his new album ‘Genesis Revisited II.’
The US Festival was an event that had a staggering impact on the world of rock and roll. Despite only existing for two short years, it would help to lay the groundwork for the modern festivals (Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Coachella, etc.) which we enjoy now.
Looking at the chameleonic nature of the ever-changing lineup of Yes over the last four decades, it would seem understandable that Jon Davison, the band’s latest singer, might approach the gig with a degree or three of hesitation. But with a number of shows under his belt, Davison is already feeling pretty comfortable.
While many of us might have grown up with posters of our favorite guitar heroes on the wall, Thomas Scott McKenzie took the basic idea of being a fan and went one step further. He set out on a journey to meet and interview each of his six string influences. Indulging his frustrated inner guitar player, McKenzie sought advice from each of his subjects while interviewing them to get tips on how he could improve as a player.
