She’s been recording with Bob Seger since 1972’s Katmandu and started singing with him on the road in 1978. She also sang on Eric Clapton’s “Behind the Sun” album and performed on that tour as well, including their show at Live A...

Here’s someone else who has SEEN IT ALL. She was first recruited by Kim Fowley to join the all-femal band the Runaways and in 1979 she headed out on her own. In 1980, after the breakup of the Runaways, she signed with Mercury Records and released her solo debut: Out For Blood. From there, she continued until 1995, when she went on a hiatus. In 2008, she came back with a vengeance and hasn’t let up since.

Alice Cooper is one of the main-stays of rock music and the godfather of shock.  You're just as likely to see him spending time with a guillotine as you are with a pet snake or playing 9 holes of golf.

Begin the Begin is the first biography of R.E.M. wholly researched and written since they disbanded in 2011. It offers by far the most detailed account of the group's formative years--their early lives, their first encounters with one another, their legendary debut show, early tours in the back of a van, initial recordings, their shrewdly paced rise to fame.

If Rick Nielsen weren’t one of rock and roll’s most colorful and accomplished characters in real life, there’s no way to have dreamed him up. A homemade cartoon figure who is also a down-to-earth family man. A superlative guitarist who makes it look like a goof onstage. An inveterate joker whose best-known song is a sincere request for love. You think it’s all an image, a pose? Spend a few minutes with the man and you’ll find out j...
