I think it's safe to say the Nickelback knows they are simultaneously one of the most popular and most hated bands in the world -- after all, they went through the trouble of creating a (hilarious) video response to a petition from Detroit Lions fans to keep them off the Thanksgiving Day halftime show.
Black Country Communion, who released albums in 2010 and 2011, will reportedly improve that streak to three albums in three years. The hard blues-rock band -- Joe Bonamassa, Glenn Hughes, Derek Sherinian and Jason Bonham -- will head to the studio in June to record an album that will be released later this year.
Guild has introduced its new Arcos series of acoustic guitars. The Arcos models feature Guild’s arched-back body design, delivering enhanced volume, projection and excellent structural stability. Three new guitar models offer legendary Guild sound and playability at very accessible price points.
