So yes, it's Bruce Springsteen's birthday. He was born on this date (September 23) in 1949. We've already reminded you about his 2014 performance of AC/DC's "Highway to Hell" in Perth, Australia. But let's not forget his performance of Van Halen's "Jump" from April 6, 2014, in Dallas, Texas.
Ozzy Osbourne will headline the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in New Orleans October 31. For his performance, the Black Sabbath singer will be supported by band that includes guitarists Slash and Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello, plus Osbourne’s Black Sabbath bandmate bassist Geezer Butler.
If you've read the headline, you already know what lies ahead. Enjoy this video of a 2-year-old kid plays Rage Against the Machine's "Bulls on Parade" on Guitar Hero. The clip, which was posted to the interwebs June 12, is nearing the 4 million-views mark as we speak.
In honor of his 50th birthday, here’s a clip of Tom Morello performing “Save The Hammer For The Man” along with Ben Harper on dobro and supporting vocals. Released under Morello’s The Nightwatchmen alias, the track appears on his World Wide Rebel Songs album. Harper also appears as a guest vocalist on the studio version.
Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello is making his first solo rock album. Morello recently told Billboard that his recent tour with Bruce Springsteen (and contributions to Springsteen's new album, High Hopes) has inspired him to rock out on his own.
A few years ago, the editors of Guitar World magazine compiled what we feel is the ultimate guide to the 100 Greatest Guitar Solos of All Time. The list, which has been quoted by countless artists, websites and publications around the world, starts with Richie Sambora's work on Bon Jovi's “Wanted Dead or Alive” (Number 100) and builds to a truly epic finish with Jimmy Page's solo on "Stairway to Heaven" (Number 1).
