Guns N' Roses
Leave it to Kiss to bring four diverse rockers together for a new project. Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal and Pantera and Kill Devil Hill bassist Rex Brown are just two of the members of the new all-star Kiss tribute band A.L.I.V.E.!. A.L.I.V.E.! also features former Whitesnake drummer Brian Tichy, and Kill Devil Hill guitarist Mark Zavon. The foursome are calling their new collaboration A.L.I.V.E.! a true tribute to ‘70s era Kiss.
Fans never quite know what they're gonna get with a Guns N' Roses gig, and when the setting is a bowling alley / rock club in Brooklyn, N.Y., there's truly no telling what could happen. On Thursday night (June 6), Axl Rose and company rolled (pun intended) into the Brooklyn Bowl and scored big with the fans who were lucky enough to attend such an intimate GN'R gig.
Guns N' Roses' 'Appetite for Destruction' is deserving of its top spot in the 25 Hard Rock Debut Albums of all-time, as the disc yielded three of the top rock anthems of all-time -- 'Welcome to the Jungle,' 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and 'Paradise City.' All three songs have garnered endless radio play, are still heard at sporting events and feature some of the most memorable licks in rock history.
Guns N' Roses have just announced that they will be playing an intimate show this Thursday, June 6, at New York's Brooklyn Bowl, a music venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that is also a bowling alley. The gig will serve as a warm-up show of sorts for the band's headlining gig at New York's Governors Ball this Saturday, June 8.
After nine seasons, 'The Office' closed up shop last night (May 17), but not without giving the cast of characters a hard-rocking send off. The finale centered around a pair of events -- Dwight and Angela's wedding and the shooting of DVD bonus content for the documentary -- with the office co-workers reuniting a full year after the series penultimate episode. As expected for a series finale, there were a number of poignant moments, and luckily for rock fans they were soundtracked by some harder rocking favorites.
