Like the narrator in "The Changingman," one of his best-known songs, Paul Weller's career is built on shifting sands. He's been a punk rock frontman at the vanguard of the late-'70s mod revival movement, a soul/R&B singer, guitar hero and the "Mod Father," hero to the protagonists and antagonists of the drama-filled Britpop scene of the mid-'90s.
Storm Corrosion -- the new project from Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt and Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson -- were previously set to release their eponymous debut on April 24, but the release has now been pushed back to May 8.
Pisces Brian Jones is one of the most misunderstood and undeniably important innovators of rock and roll. As founder of The Rolling Stones in 1962, Jones' contribution to the ultimate blossoming and explosion of rock in popular culture cannot be underestimated. However, as a vulnerable Pisces, Jones suffered a fate typical to his Sun sign: He was marginalized.
When it comes to rock and roll bloodlines, you'd be hard pressed to find an active artist with a more impressive pedigree than bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, who fronts British/American supergroup Black Country Communion. Hughes, who was born in 1951 in Staffordshire, England, came to prominence in the early '70s as a member of British funk-rock pioneers Trapeze. That led to a career-making spot in the Mk. III and IV lineups of Deep Purple in the mid-'70s, when he replaced Roger Glover and evolved into one of the band's main songwriters, co-penning "Holy Man," "You Keep On Moving" and "The Gypsy."
It's hard to juggle all the news surrounding Metallica these days -- summer shows, a new album, a 3D film, their own music festival -- so we can only guess what those guys are going through. While their 3D film isn't set to appear in theaters until the summer of 2013, the band are actively working on the project, and have just announced signing on director Nimrod Antal and producer Charlotte Huggins for the film.
Joe Satriani's new 3D concert film, Satchurated, debuted in select theaters around the country last week, and you can now check out the performance footage of "Satch Boogie" from the film. Watch below.
