Guns N’ Roses + Dave Grohl’s throne + Angus Young + an AC/DC classic =
Performing at Coachella this past Saturday night, Gun N’ Roses called up rock n’ roll buddy Angus Young from AC/DC to provide a little electricity (and Duck Walk) on-stage alongside Slash and Duff as Axl Rose was forced to sit with a broken foot. However, despite his limitation, it was recently announced that Axl will tour with AC/DC (lead singer has to rest with hearing problems) starting May 7th in Portugal. Once his crossover with his Australian friends concludes, the Rose of Guns N’ Roses will return for a U.S. stadium tour beginning mid-June.
Injury or not, rock n’ roll should always have a stage available with Fender amps ready to be blown out by a Les Paul.
Welcome to the New Week!
Like others, there are bands that I like that I’ve discovered well before they become widely known, “big” and/or mainstream and I take quite a bit of pride in this when it happens. It’s a special moment and is really cool when this occurs! Amusingly, the clip below illustrates the lengths some music fans will go to portray themselves as the most “in” of all those who are “in” when it comes to knowing the next “big band.”
It’s time for a “Lie Witness News” report!
As a nice, relaxing treat to ease you into the weekend, enjoy this funny bit from Jimmy Kimmel Live that contains interviews from fans from this year’s Coachella in the desert of Santa Barbara, California. It’s a gigantic musical festival that typically features a few massively popular bands and a long list of smaller indie groups, some on the cusp of making it to our radios, hearts and wallets.
That is, if they even exist…
