Metallica were easily the best, most influential heavy metal band of the ’80s and ’90s. Responsible for bringing the genre back to Earth, the bandmates looked and talked like they were from the street, shunning the usual rock star games of metal musicians during the mid-’80s pop-metal renaissance.Read More

By 1977 Journey had reached a creative crossroads, with three underwhelming studio albums under their belt and little to show in the way of commercial success. At the prodding of manager Herbie Herbert, who felt a major shakeup was needed in order to reignite their spark, the band was convinced to audition and eventually recruit the services of former Alien Project vocalist Steve Perry.Read More

Gerry Rafferty is a huge talent, but a reluctant star.

Just a glimpse of John Patrick Byrne’s cool cover art lets the listener know City to CityRead More
