Guns ‘N Roses Hit Career Milestone

I remember when they announced the reunion. "No way was GNR going to tour, and have it run through the entire summer." In fact, part of the reason I didn't purchase tickets to their Gillette shows was the idea they wouldn't make it. Well again, I was completely wrong.

We feel for Phil Collins. He's overcome a number of health issues to finally be able to hit the road again. Unfortunately, Phil has injured himself in the most un-rock and roll way.

Guns N Roses Return To New England

Last year, Guns N Roses brought their Not In This Lifetime tour around the country. No one (including this guy) thought it would last long enough to play out the dates scheduled for Gillette Stadium. Based on history, SOMETHING would go wrong. Fans would borderline riot since Axl refused to go on before midnight. Or, cancel the show altogether, as explained so eloquently by show opener Sebastian Bach. These were just the last two times I attempted them to see the band! So, band history, traffic snarls, and the following likelihood kept me from the show. A show which tied November Rain with the piano breakdown of Layla, and a cover of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here." Plus, all the songs you'd expect. Damn.

Elton John Coming To Maine! 5 Songs He Better Play

When word came in Elton John is coming to Maine for two shows, my mind immediately did the selfish concert fan thing of what HE BETTER PLAY! Being the type of Elton John guy who still listens to his new material (work with the late Leon Russell, and The Diving Board produced some of his best songs since the 70's) I'm still a first day listener/buyer. Yet, when at an Elton show, you simply can't deny the hits. The songs are larger than life, and wouldn't you rather sing along Tiny Dancer anyway? Not you, Tim McGraw. So, here's five we're hoping are on the set list.

No Deal In Place For Led Zeppelin Reunion

Earlier this week, Robert Plant's website was very cryptic in hopes of a reunion for Desert Trip AKA "Oldchella." "Any time now" sent the internet into overdrive on thoughts of a one off Led Zeppelin show. According to Billboard, the message on Plant's web site "is more likely a tease to a forthcoming album than to an upcoming performance.
