FM’s Creator Checks Out, The Dead Get Set Up (Like A Bowling Pin), And Terry Kath’s Birthday: This Day In Classic Rock [Video]

In recent years particularly, labels like Rhino and Sony Legacy have released more best-of collections and box sets than ever. But how many is too many? If nearly all the compilations are identical in tracklisting, what’s the point?
Perry Farrell’s aura seems to be present in every aspect of Lollapalooza. But this year the Lollapalooza founder opted to go offsite to make an appearance in the flesh for an intimate after-party with Jane’s Addiction.
Robert Allen Zimmerman, known around the synagogue as Shabatai Zisel ben Avraham, and on other artist’s recordings on which he played piano and/or harmonica as Elston Gunn, Bob Landy, and Tedham Porterhouse, legally changed his […]
